  1. If a doddering old fart of a Joe groper was aged 90 he shouldn’t be sniffing round anything!—–he’d probably end up having a heart attack if he so much as tried to look up a young womans skirt 😀

    There are some women though who, given half a chance,would take on a doddering, slavering, incontinent, 90 year old git as long as he had one foot in the grave, the other on a banana skin and had zillions in the bank——me i’d rather be poor 😀


  2. Can’t help but wonder what’s in the white carrier bag the mans holding.

    Their latest presription from the chemist? all that’s keeping them going now.

    3 rashers of bacon each? all they can afford on their meagre pension.

    A bottle of brown ale each? a little treat to while away the lonely hours.

    not a lot of fun getting old is it.


    • Nope, it can be real bummer. There again there are some pretty sprightly 90 yr olds around!
      As the Spice Girls said to an 80yr old Nelson Mandela, ” You’re only as old as the girl you feel” 🙂
      Getting a sniff of a chance at that age though, might seem to be a slight issue for yr average doddering old fart joe groper :))


    • THanks Ath’ London Dada, Dada as we see it, for the new times we live in.

      ” For us, art is not an end in itself … but it is an opportunity for the true perception and criticism of the times we live in.” – Hugo Ball co-founder DADA, 1916.
