The excitement of old age

Here is a hurtful reminder of the passage of time. Courtesy of same daughter.   Not sure what I've done to deserve all this.

  10. "But you wouldn't catch me doing that, Patsy." But you ride a horse!

    1. Graham, I'm a Facebook Troll; not the same thing at all. I actually dislike FB, but it's good for keeping an eye on my family. I wouldn't have had you down as one, either!
