    When you first said you were in the UK, I thought that might be a problem, but when you said you were Welsh, I then knew things would be alright. :D

    Welcome!

    Hi and Welcome,

    I'm an old f__t also, 67, and just picked up this computer thing a few years ago. I also just do it for fun, and, enjoy it immensely.

    It's great when the grandkids say it's broke, but grandpa can fix if.

    Ahh, isn't that the way it used to be in the good old days, before kids started assuming they were so smart?

    Welcome aboard!

    I think I may still be the senior member here. I'll be 81 in about 50 days.

    'Only' 77? That's pretty darned good for a fellow Texan! I still have my motorcycle driver's license, which is required out here and still am forced to take their test at renewal each time, but I haven't been on a bike in 30 years, maybe 28, when I gave up desert racing. We are obviously blessed with good health. I'd still be hunting if there was something I craved in the back country, but I've done it all and am thankful to have been blessed with good health. Peace!
