Tell me about it...my good lady wife happens to have exactly the same DOB as Kylie. I'm in dangerous territory on the odd occasion I point this fact out to her! sofahide

I've just applied for my driving licence renewal online. ( it has to be renewed if and when you reach 73). Blimey, I didn't think my liver would last this long. Surprisingly, the DVLA don't ask for any proof of fitness, eyesight competence etc.

Seconded Rbee. Those two seasons of back to back promotions to the old First Division and first ever League Cup at Wembley were the best of times, an absolute fact.

Think it's 70, anyhow just renewed mine for the ten years but it's only valid for eight as I will reach the magical figure before ten years is up. That really is knowing when you are old(ish). :shock:

Yes, it is 70 which is what I meant to put. The 73 was a typo. I think another sign of being old is when you get to hate driving. I used to love it, had classic cars and everything. I drive as little as I possibly can now.

Oh really what cars did you have? I still love driving, in the right car of course.
