Do you know what mutton dressed as lamb is? Dale does.

Can someone set up a separate thread for Ten bob so he can post to his hearts content about his man crush Vince Dale please?

There'd only be Bob and Sluffy on there! 

Maybe we could tempt them in then lock it. My only worry would be that they'd burrow out and come up in my own personal thread, possibly turning it into an illegal squat.

Bob admits to wearing ripped jeans, so he's clearly a Vince style new ager. Not sure how he'll get on with Sluffy in the flesh though. I'm pretty sure Sluffy has creases in his pyjama bottoms, and smokes a pipe in bed.

Do you have a thing about ironing, Boncey?

You remember Bobby Moore, not for captaining the England World Cup winning team, but mostly for ironing the notes in his wallet, allegedly, and now Sluffy has creases in his pyjama bottoms, allegedly.

Have you ever been hit with a flat iron? John has.

I was 3rd in the European Ironing Board marathon, pipped at the post by two Russians I'm convinced were using illegal starch spray. Nothing has yet been proved though.
My foray into extreme ironing was cut short by injury. And the police.

Then I got fed up with the coffee and cake culture I'd settled into. Took a part time job delivering new cars and vans all over the country, and now at nearly 70, I do security escorts, (zero hours), whenever I feel like it. 
Although basically a lazy sod, I find that if I don't keep myself busy for at least 2 days a week, its mind-numbingly boring, although have to say that I can actually feel myself physically slowing down.
Use it or lose it Glos. At our age you need to up your exercise regime otherwise you will slow down and you surely have the time to do it? I like a drink and a party but I work on a "credit" basis i.e. I go to the gym for 2 hours Mon-Thurs and play footie for a couple hours on Friday before I go out and if I miss a session training then I have to cut back on socialising until I have the credit in the bank.  Low impact aerobic stuff and low weights/high reps will keep you in shape and on the move and slow down the loss of muscle mass which invariably comes with age - whilst protecting joints which is the problem with overloading. A bit of pilates or yoga is incredibly good for us older chaps as is swimming and cycling (or spinning which is what I do). Sounds like a chore but if you find a routine that suits you and is enjoyable you should get into it because once you lose the muscles and the joints go it's a long way back.
The only time I feel I'm slowing down tends to be the weekends when I'm prone to excessive partying and very little exercise, but Mondays usually sort it out fairly quickly. I go at 4.30 so I'm back for the evening and tonight it's an hour on the cross trainer and an hour Pilates to help keep my stomach under control - which will give me the "credit" to indulge myself a bit if I feel like it. Get yourself fit man!
Wander, you're going to be the fittest corpse in the mortuary. The only sport I've really enjoyed is squash, or table football, and the biggest change I've made recently that affected me most, is moving from  an upstairs /downstairs house to a bungalow. Stairs are bloody painful nowadays Very Happy
I have a bungalow too for the past 3 years although the house hasn't been sold yet - soon hopefully. Bought it to be nearer the doctors/shops/chemist but unfortunately it's also nearer the pubs/restaurants/takeaways too so it's become a battle of the bulge - which the gym keeps me a contender in. I'm a mortuary dodger anyway having survived a heart attack approx 15 years ago so I'm at least going to go down fighting (cruiserweight/heavyweight depending on how good/bad I've been)! Every day is a bonus so I'll bloody well make sure I make the most of it and staying fit is a big part of that. Still kicking 20 year olds off the park so at least I'll die happy.
Good for you mate, go for it. Stay on the fit fat regime, nobody will care what you look like at your age  Very Happy
Must be an age thing, as we downsized and moved literally 10 minutes walk from the house to here, but we had to take into account the location of the shops, doctor's, hospital, and they even changed the bus route which now runs pass the house. I find my part-time job keeps the brain ticking over and the walking about relatively up to speed.
Nothing graceful in growing old, but it doesn't stop us being practical.  Very Happy

Keeping active, both physically and mentally, is important. Age creeps up on you.
Only two years ago getting into the loft was a doddle, but I'm afraid it's a little more of a struggle now.
What happened? I didn't notice anything. Why do my pants keep shrinking? 
I miss the banter we used to have at work, so Nuts has been a good replacement for that.
For all the insults, there are good people on here, and if laughter is the best medicine, Nuts is GlaxoSmithKline.

This thread has made me think about my father and his retirement.

He was born in 1921 and had to leave school when he was 14 due to the death of his father.

He began work at Bolton Town Hall  and finally retired having a senior position in 1977.

He took advantage of an early retirement package. He had his 40 years service ( including his army service) and got his full pension.  He died in 2009 after receiving an inflation proofed pension for 32 years. That's the way to do it!!

I didn't mean well done because he died! Er, I meant, well done for planning ahead. Not planning ahead for death, but for his future. If you get my drift. :facepalm:

One of my pensions is from the Civil Service, and I've always said that I'm going to live to 105 to get as much out of the buggers as I can  Very Happy
