Please be very careful when you put in your first appearance in glasses ,.,. You look enough like your namesake without them but with specs on I anticipate a spooky, scarey experience !

Oh & if it's in the genes then yes ,, you CAN anticipate a hip problem later too !
Oh God, this is all getting too freaky !!

given they are for reading small print, not books etc you are unlikely to see me in them!

Life does not, of course, begin proverbially at 40, but achieving that landmark does provide an appropriate opportunity for reflection. It is a pertinent time to look back in honest assessment at the successes and failures down the years, and, hopefully, use the experiences gained to chart a passage for the future.
So there ! ,,,
