Re: Do you feel/look your age?

I don't think I act my age; I can still do some juvenile cock ups. More to do with mental inadequacy than any sense of youthfulness. My face whilst not exactly marble like, is not a bag of marbles either so does not show the ravages of time that it could do. All in all, I would say i'm not doing too bad for your average 72 year old. A bit wrinkled and more crackly but fine.

Re: Do you feel/look your age?

I am not old in my mind. It's only when I look in the mirror that I am.

Re: Do you feel/look your age?

Most people seem genuinely surprised when I tell them my age, but they might just be polite, the same way that I always knock a few years off when people ask me how old I think they are....Especially women....

My face is well lived in, and when I look in the mirror I'm beginning to see my Dad looking back at me. I think my body is in good shape, possibly that of someone much younger and at sixty eight it still manages to run about 25 miles round the neighbourhood each week, but recovery is not what it used to be, and I think all the running [in mammoth proportions] I used to do has taken a heavy toll on my heart. It's my weak link....

That’s an unpleasant thing to say Floydy . You have no idea whether they’re disabled or not .
Many illnesses require medication that piles weight on unfortunately and leave people without the ability to exercise so of course they put weight on .

Re: Do you feel/look your age?

I don't know, many people think I am my son's sister if that helps.
I suppose I am childish often too.
Age is just a number anyway.

Re: Do you feel/look your age?

It's difficult to judge ourselves isn't it. In my mind I am still in my mid twenties, I don't have any wrinkle yet but like you Floydy, my memory is not what it used to be despite doing quizzes and crosswords daily.

I agree with you dongles.
I probably look better than some, and worse than others, so how can we judge?
We can't tell how others see us anyway.
