I'm not far behind you Peter. The only issue I've discovered (at my last health check) is "shrinking". I weigh the same as I did in highschool but on an almost 3" shorter frame. And all this time I thought the gooseneck was being pulled upward and my trousers shrinking.

Cheers...

Yes I am the same, I have shrunk from 5ft 11.5 inches down to 5ft 9 inches and that is when I stand up trying to be tall.

I just hope that I shall be chatting to you all again on my next birthday.

Go well

Peter

Re: 70 years of age

G'Day Peter,

Happy BD from one who passed the big 70 some while ago.

On Insatiable we have a motto: we can't be forever young, but we CAN be forever immature!

Carry on, mate.

Cheers,

Jim
