Yesterday, an elderly neighbour... not too fit herself... gave ME a Food Parcel!
Well, Thanks for that... though I did not need it... just still feeling 'off'.  :)

Must really get the white whiskers shaved off!  :o  ;)

I'm reminded of a friend of my grandparents who cycled several miles a day to help "an old guy" of around seventy because he was "getting on a bit" and not able to do everything himself.

Their friend was over ninety!!!
Growing old is mandatory, growing up is entirely optional!

John Cook

I reach my three quarters century in a few days and don't consider myself an 'old guy'! 
I am reminded of my late uncle who joined up in 1939 age 40 and served throughout the N African and Italian campaigns in 3 Hussars (Crusaders and Shermans), who when 96 was told that he needed to think about a residential home but refused to on the grounds that such places were full of old people.
Perceptions are everything.

Have to agree John. Was marshalling again yesterday -looking for a bar to my medal.
