I'm kinda proud of this.

Just call me gran'f'er. I sit in my accustomed seat in the shade of the chestnut tree. My face is a withered apple. The tip of my long white beard keeps dipping into the froth of the tankard of Old Peculiar that I keep balanced on my knee.

Ah, the times that I have seen!

I suppose this does make LJ useful if you want to keep in touch with young viewpoints. Play with this meme a bit and you'll find that the median age is 18 - 19.

It doesn't make me feel "old", though. I'd only feel old in an LJ sense if no one on LJ had anything to say to me any more.

Does this mean we should address you as "Sir"? :)

Should you address me as "sir"? No- don't fancy that at all.
How about "your reverence"?

Only when you're not being Your Irreverence, of course. :)

Get over it, young Whippersnapper! I'm 59 and crumbling fast.

It's not my fault! I'm not doing this on purpose!

Wouldn't I want to be 14, worrying about how to wear my socks to be popular, and wondering if Steve likes me or Connie, who wears too much makeup? (Oh, Connie. It's always Connie.)

Nowadays, I wonder if my oatmeal is too hot...

Just you wait...

Thank'ee kindly lass. Well, it were a long time ago now. I mind it were afore yer old dad were born, back in the good old days when you could go into a public house with sixpence in yer pocket and come out at the end of a very fine evening and still have thruppence change. Anyhow, where wuz I? Ah, I remember, yes, it were a beautiful summer's evenin'- not like the ones we get now- Lor luv you, no- and I were sitting on the gate of that field down by Faltering Brook, the one where the German place crashed in '42 and the pilot bailed out and your aunt Molly (God rest her soul) captured him and locked him up in the hay-loft and kept guard with her Cyril's old shotgun (him being away with the 8th army chasing Rommel through the desert) until the Home Guard unit came by next morning and took him off her hands. Should ha' seen the beggar's face when she showed him the gun weren't loaded! Anyhow, now what was I a-goin' to tell you? 'Twern't that, I know. Somethin' about Molly was it? Or the Germans or... No. Memory ain't what it used to be. I'll remember shortly. Oh dang, lookee here- my pipe's gone out....
