    I finally retired 18 years ago although I had previously taken early retirement after working 25 years for ICI at Runcorn 25 years ago and in that time I have enjoyed many 'Ahhha' moments but the one that stands out in my mind as probably being the best was tootling around the canals in our narrowboat, a close second was being out at the crack of dawn and sitting fishing on the banks of a lake or pond listening to the birds singing and being at peace with the world whether I caught anything was totally immaterial, happy days, I'm afraid with the onset of old age all that has now gone, great memories though.

    Drones ?

    A UK university has developed a drone catcher that fires a projectile loaded with a fine net over the top of the drone which as it approaches ejects the net over the drone and drags it to earth.

    Jumping Jack Flash,

    According to the wife Ann is not available at the moment as she is busy doing very little in the TV show "I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here" another high quality epic.

    Ok. P J I stand corrected, it is not an obsession you have with men's rear ends, you just enjoy observing them!.😄

    Brexit again -

    What happens when a coach load of whatever nationalities arrive by ferry in Dublin then drive to across the 'soft' border to Belfast and arrive in Holyhead to wander willy nilly where ever they wish, how will that be controlled?.

    Brexit again -

    "When you are up to your arse with alligators it is difficult to remember that the object of the exercise was to drain the swamp" At the time of the referendum the majority of the UK's population hadn't a clue what they were voting for and the burning issue at the time appeared to be taking control of our own borders thus preventing the influx of foreign nationals into the country which I believe has since appeared to have been lost in the mist of time, if Tragic Theresa gets her way will we effectively take control of our borders or not?.

    Colourful collision

    PJ the main reason I now rarely visit this group is to avoid seeing your bitter and volatile remarks, no doubt that has given give you immense pleasure. On November the 4th, I posted a perfectly reasonable and polite post ("P J are you the gentleman that I met at Moore rugby club a few years back when you were holding a photography display if so you were very polite") and as far as I can see you have not as yet posted a reply.  I am still awaiting a polite reply to the latter!.

    Old age

    Correct attitude stallard, when you reach our age you get to know if something is not right with our bodies.

    Observer and PJ

    I hit the PJ ignore button a while back and then restored him much later, I have a feeling that either I or P J may be using it again shortly after my reply to the 'Marooned Sailors' joke posted by Aps.

    Old age

    Stallard, absolutely you have made the right decision get out there and enjoy yourself. I am two years behind you at 78 but 'touch wood' keeping well and relatively active although I woke at 3am this morning with stomach pains, damn this diverticulitis hopefully it will pass within a few days it usually does then it can be months before it bothers me again, waste of time going to the quacks as I am a firm believer that once you turn 70 the medical profession lose interest in you as the government policy is after that age you are either expendable or a bloody nuisance or both.
