When Is One Old

Posted by Pete | Posted in News | Posted on 10-06-2021


When do we get old? …….I put that into my computer this morning and got several answers….Some say you are old at 43, others after 50 and the older one think it is 65…So, none of those cover me, so further investigation reveals that we have the term ….elderly, now that seems to be around 75 or so for early elderly….then we come to the, er, uh,, well, the late elderly, not in “late” as passed, but in late in still hanging on I reckon. That’s apparently where I am….still here,  hanging on, enjoying the days and nights (until 9 o’clock or so anyway). I’m in that “late elderly” category, but I don’t feel like “late elderly”. But I guess that can change in a heart beat, from not feeling it to really feeling it…So, after some careful consideration, maybe you guys should just call me “ripe elderly”….Yep, old Pete is ripe….hasn’t dropped off the tree just yet, but he is dangling….a dad gum strong wind could bring him down from the tree…I reckon ripe fits, don’t you?
