When we grow older the only thing that seems to move faster is the passage of time. We all have a finite lifespan and I. anyway, am seemingly hurtling down the last piece of track leading to that final destination and finding that the speed at which I can take actions and do things I becoming increasingly slower so that the demands on my time seem to become ever more pressing. Happily, the one thing of which there seems to be no shortage, however, is a vast number of jokes about elderly people and perhaps it is a sign of the make-up of the present generation of (very) senior citizens that we have at least retained our sense of humour. At any stage in life, the ability not to take oneself too seriously is surely a positive attribute of any person’s character.
