THE WHO - My Generation
'Will you still need me, will you still feed me, when I'm sixty-four' said Paul McCartney in his famous song to his dad about getting old.
Bloody 'ell! I am 65 on Sunday and officially become an Old Age Pensioner. An Old Age Pensioner, are you jocking?. I can't believe it ! What an 'orrible thought. You never quite think about becoming a Pensioner, but unfortunately it creeps or should I say steam rollers up on you like an express train.
But I am not quite ready for the arm chair, I will not be sitting in God's waiting room. No thank you!, that is not for me. As long as I am 'fit' there are a few things that are on my Bucket List that I would like to do, before I pop my clogs or kick that bucket.
I still harbour dreams of doing a marathon and if my feet can hold out (I have had a few problems recently) I am still determined to do it, or give it a shot. I have also had for some time now, this idea of climbing Kilimanjaro. I would especially love to do it with my kids. It is a bit of a challenge, you hike up to 5 hours a day and the air gets quite thin up there. What I like about it is that you start in tropical surroundings and end up in possible Arctic conditions.
Bring it on! Baby!.
Can you handle it Shellhunter, Flycasual, London Scouser ?.
As you already know, I love my music, but I have never been to a Musical Festival. I have just got to do it. Mud, Wellies, Tornadoes, bring it on I am ready for the experience. It's on My List.
I think that is enough to begin with, but when that is completed. I will go on to phase 2.
So don't you dare call me an 'old fart'.
