About this deal

There are many mysteries in old age but the greatest, surely, is this: in those adverts for walk-in bathtubs, why doesn’t all the water gush out when you get in?” I am getting to an age when I can enjoy the last sport left. It is called hunting for your spectacles.”

In January they’re off to Lancaster Leisure Park, which features an antiques centre. “We feel we may have something in common with them,” said David. We have felt the pain of losing some precious friends recently & wanted to show our love in tangible form If anyone had reason to be glum it was Michael. After all, the Allonby Tea Rooms owner was the only member of the club working. They’re entertaining,” said Michael. “They discuss all sorts of weird subject matter. They try to be grumpy but they can’t seem to manage it. There’s too much humour. People who wouldn’t have seen each other very often, now they can catch up. It’s firmed up good friendships.” Some conversations drew everyone in. Some deserved to have bus trips turning up to eavesdrop. Such as George describing having some koi carp in a plastic bag in a box. “The box said ‘This way up’ on it. I don’t think the fish were bothered which way up they were.”Absent Friends ~ Absent Friends ~ Absent Friends ~ Absent Friends ~ Absent Friends ~ Absent Friends

I came up from Kent,” said Tony. “I don’t know the area. This lot tells me the different things that are going on. They’re a fount of knowledge.”You can live to be a hundred if you give up all the things that make you want to live to be a hundred.” I would not want it to be thought that I had lived for all these years without having anything to show for it.” I’ve got cheekier with age. You can get away with murder when you’re 71 years old. People just think I’m a silly old fool.” Gits sans Frontières ~ Gits ohne Grenzen ~ Gits bez Granic ~ Gits uden Grænser ~ Gits sonder Grense

There’s no law that decrees when not to whinge, but you reach a certain age – 80 seems about right – when you’re expected to manifest querulousness – the coffee’s too hot, the boiled egg’s too soft …” Andy Barnard’s T-shirt bore the words ‘Warning – Grumpy Old Para’. Several members are ex-servicemen. Several, including Tony Thompson, moved to Allonby from elsewhere in the country. David has suggested inviting Donald Trump to join them, on the basis that the American President is neither young nor cheerful.Mainly, words fail me! It’s really nice having a community thing for the blokes. There’s not much for men out here that doesn’t involve the pub. We’ve got people who have been in a lot of different jobs and situations. They’ll all got good stories to tell.” Holy Christ, what da you know – I’m still around!’ It’s absolutely amazing that I survived all the booze and smoking and the cars and the career.”
