I suppose, sometime soon, I will become one of the "old people" that we always used to gripe about when we were younger.

That would explain why there are so many clowns, right enough! :)

Barnard Castle isn't far away. Good place for a day trip, I hear.

Don't you need to require an eye test to visit here?

No. You just need to SAY you need to test your eyes (whilst maintaining a straight face).

No, no no. Driving there is the eye test. Bonus points for doing it on your wife's birthday.

Mrs Westie cracked a similar joke when we were passing the sign to Barnard Castle on the A6 to Penrith yesterday!  ;D
I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.

Who are we to question the words of our leaders and their acolytes? We are but the plebs/drones at the "bottom of the food pile".
I don't know whether I'm reassured (or not) that they merrily assume we will merely accept whatever nonsense they say.
