When you make a conscious effort to look younger. Hair dye, white trousers, loud shirts and a new found love for moisterizer.

I agree with the loud shirts part if you are referring to these Hawiian ones, they are typical of what the overweight big bellied guys wear.

Those loud shirts are called "happy shirts". In Indonesia casual Friday is called Batik Friday.

re 'possum1931'

 

Hello possum! (OMG I'm sounding like Dame Edna Everage! - although I look more like Sir Les Patterson)

 

Sinatra, like Bing Crosby, Perry Como, Dick Haymes etc. of that period, was basically a 'crooner'. Today they sound very bland but that was the popular style up to around 1960. 'The Perry Como Show' was tremendously popular on UK TV. Michael Holiday, Dennis Lotus and Dickie Valentine were popular British crooners.

 

Then it changed - pre-Beatles. More and more, Country, Blues and Jazz influenced popular song in the USA. Elvis and Roy, as you know, were Southern boys deeply influenced by the Country/Blues heritage. (Remember George Clooney and the Soggy Bottom Boys in  'O Brother, Where Art Thou?' - funny!)

 

Contentious, maybe, but I think jazz influenced popular singing a lot back then. A pleasant and simple song called 'Make Someone Happy' was crooned on record, usually very boringly - although there was a very skilful and pleasant rendition by Margaret Whiting, BUT WHOA! Della Reese, even getting on in years, transformed it! It sends a tingle down my spine. Della was born in Black Bottom, Detroit, and can't you just tell! (It's on YouTube)

When your see a familiar face and say "I think I used to date your daughter"

And yes, that has also happened.

Will my pets outlive me?

 

Hmm. I have 4 pet tortoises born about 7 years ago. The average tortoise life span is 80 years and I am 62.

And then you need a tape recorder to remind you what you went up the stair lift for.

When you can still remember what a tape recorder is...

Na just stirring the pot and hardly a young 'un there grandad lol 😆 im ageing quite gracefully thanks very much and totally enjoying the ride not pretending I could still compete with me in my 20s.

 And speaking of the alternative who wants to be 100? Well the bloke who is 99 for one. There's a dad joke you can have.

Similar.  I arrived here when I was 58 , for years I was a window cleaner , I could climb up the ladder , stand on a wall then haul the ladder up, put it down the other side ...then return.  Now at 74 I get worried climbing 4ft up steps to clean a ceiling light.

Good reminder....

When I have to go up a ladder, the first thought is "I'm too old for this sh!t"......

That's about the only time that phrase announces itself....

Close but I thought belly buttons were for holding salt for the chips.

Where is the melody in this song? The voice sounds like a typical singer taking part in a pub sing song. Listen to the difference when you hear Elvis or Roy Orbison, you get a good original singing voice, with a melody that you can make out rather than just words coming out of someone's mouth.

I agree , even my dad about 100 years ago agreed.  Hardly a patch on Andy Williams.

Growing old........................................ That was Maurice Chevalier. How do I know. When I became 65 several years ago my brother sent me a book called ' Old Git Wit '. One from ......page 33  ' I go slower as time goes faster '.
