Keep going -----
Some years ago, Bristol University did a study on Old Blues, and came to the conclusion --- I kid you not !---- that
"20% exceeded the National Mortality Rate " --------
I always understood this to be 100% ----- :?
so 20% of us are IMMORTAL !!! :lol: :lol:

It was about the patients of Dr Friend, and I sent the results for publication in the Blue !!

I wonder if the Author got a Double First ?? :oops:

As one dinosaur to an apprentice, welcome to middle age. As for a quicky drinky, not a good idea - just sit down and consume slowly taking all the time in the world. You'll enjoy more of them :wine: :wine: :wine: :wine: :drinkers: :drinkers: :drinkers:
