Hi Patsy - do wish you wouldn't remind us!! Age is a sore topic!! But the idea of being a Quadragenarian sounds fun ... and I think you're living that way ... cheers Hilary

Bummer, I'm past that...

Author R. Mac Wheeler said...

and such a sweet quadragenarian :)

Beatrice Charles said...

I'm nearer to being a sexagenarian, which does sound like fun ;-)

Frances Garrood said...

An ugly word for a very attractive woman, if I may say.

It isn't possible!

Patsy said...

I decided I've left it a bit late to grow up, Hilary - so I'm not going to bother.

Patsy said...

There must be a word for what you are now, Alex. I'll look it up.

Patsy said...

Aaaw, shucks.

Patsy said...

Ooo-er, missus!

Patsy said...

You may, Frances - you certainly may.

Patsy said...

You surprised I made it this far, Oscar?

Neil Waring said...

I call that the good ol' days - now that I'm a sexagenarian

Maggie May said...

Not me then!

Chrys Fey said...

I can't even begin to pronounce quadragenarian.

Rosemary Johnson said...

Oh, to be young again!

Maria said...

Not me sadly.

Rosemary Gemmell said...

I wasn't aware of that, Patsy, and I'm definitely past that stage!

L said...

I too have passed that stage. My mother's doctor used to say that age is biological not chronological!

Patsy said...

I'd better make the most of them then, Neil.

Patsy said...

Sorry if I posted this a little too late, Maggie.

Patsy said...

I can, but I have to do it slowly.

Patsy said...

You could start your econd childhood incredibly early, Rosemary.

Patsy said...

No? I thought we were the same age. I must have made that up.

Patsy said...

I was a long way through before I realised there was a term for it, Rosemary.

Patsy said...

I like to think it's emotional, Linda. That way I can stay young.
