I'm calmer, more chilled, less likely to fly into a murderous rage.

Oh, and i'm saving a fortune in hair cuts and hair product.

Younger laydees seem to dig older men.

I'm not pithing my life away at work (i pith it away on here instead!)

I can wear cloth caps, carpet slippers and Barbour jackets without looking pretentious. Obviously, not all 3 at the same time.

Car insurance is cheaper.

I get mistaken for Sean Connery more often.

People expect me to smell of wee and cabbage, so don't get so upset by the aroma as they did when I was 20.

I am fully aware that I can't solve the world's problems like I did when I was in my teens.
I can wear what I like and don't care about fashion.
Spend less on clothes.
Make full use of OAP discounts.
Free bus pass ( which I hardly use)
Can only be told what to do by my wife.
Have no money worries and no mortgage.

I thought sean connery, very sadly, had somewhat lost it.
Rubbish. Look, we're both studmuffins:

Sean Connery:

Me:

We're practically twins!
