The electric pump on a Morris 1300 needed a good kick every now and again to get the tick, tick, tick of the pump working. This was due to the mounting point, on the rear sub-frame exposing the pump to all the dirt, muck and water from the road ...

And I often find a 5% or 10% discount on restaurant bills, without having asked for one. So it's either the "US Navy Retired" pin I wear on my shirt collar, or they see all the grey hair and assume I'm over 65 (not quite yet). But I won't make a fuss, a discount is a discount. And I'll probably eat there again....

Knowing the ages of her daughters, I'd have said 25 (8{)

Yes, but .... <pause> ... stops before the hole gets too large.

The problem is that cognitive abilities slow after the 90th birthday ....

Hehehe :-)) My local male hairdressers, that also has lady snippers, which is really nice, has a discount on Fridays for Pensioners i.e. over 65. I have to ask for it, not get offered it, and I'm sure some think I'm trying it on. I'm not sure if I'm flattered or peeved ....

p.s. I do know Julies real age, and no, she really doesn't look it, and that is an honest genuine compliment.

Julie is a friend, right now in My life that's good enough, at least for that. I can't even catch a break yet, but that's on a different subject entirely.

I had my hair cut 2 days ago. That is all one and a half inches of my 1 hair, and the charge was half a dollar ...

I almost never go to the hairdressers, I always cut my hair and the hair of the kids myself. Still, half a dollar is not much.

A half dollar? It's been over 4 decades since I had a haircut for even $1.00, today they cost Me $12.00...

Half a dollar was 2s-6d (half crown) in the good old days when we got four to the £ :-) You got one of them for your birthday, you were rich!

I remember that good old cash, and even the hair I had cut. That was when we had real money, not this silly decimalised inflationary stuff we use ...

Runs me about $14.00 for a hair and beard trim.
I still have plenty of hair, but let's just say there's a lot more snow on the mountain than there used to be.
