60 and Still Kicking

Well folks that dreaded day has finally arrived.  Yesterday on the 3rd Class Feast of St Gregory of Nazianzen I left behind the 'Fighting 50s' and entered into the 'Swinging 60s' although with my creaking hip and knee joint that phrase is firmly in the my dreams category.  I had thought of a more appropriate phrase when I started to type this blog entry but now can only come up with 'Senile 60s' which I am most certainly not.  Oh, if only I could remember what that phrase was!

Anyway I have applied for my bus pass which should arrive in a week or so and then look out Scotland here I come.  No corner will be safe from a visit by me.  For those readers who reside outside Scotland you are eligible for FREE bus travel anywhere is Scotland once you reach the dignified age of sixty.  Now I am retired and no longer jetting off to exotic climes I shall explore this beautiful country of mine - for free, which is something that warms any Scotsman's heart.

    Congratulations! You are certainly a very fit man and we hope that you have many thousands of pilgrim-wandering-miles to walk before you take to an easy chair.
