    The positive things about growing old are that you can chose whether or not to be competitive. After retirement, Sir becomes Fred. Your wife welcomes you having an affair, knowing of your limp inadequacies. Armchair planning takes over from frantic doing. Feeling smug knowing that you won't be here to suffer the future miseries for which you contributed.
    Enjoy the thoughts of your savings being worth more each year because they won't have to last so long. Hone skills analysing your illnesses online and finding that you may not be terminally ill. Here in Britain after seventy five you just fill in tick box to keep your drivers licence, regardless of being half blind and being in the first stage of mental decay. Tunnel vision blocks out any distractions.
    Still having the ability to enjoy spring flowers and a pretty girl. For Gods sake don't ask about the negatives.
