Getting old does not bother me since it is a privilege denied to many. Now if I could do something with the wrinkles and cellulite...hmmmmm

So very true Lisa! A friend of mine is fretting about turning 50 in a few years but I tell him to stop being stupid as it's far better to be turning 50 than the alternative.  Got a few things in mind to sort out for his 50th that will wind him up though, what are friends for after all!!! smile
