    Age and wisdom do not = knowledge, and vice-versa. Like common sense. You can meet brilliant brains without an ounce of common sense.

    John you have almost reached the pinnacle of wisdom, I never argue with my wife about any of the things you mention just use the standard response.

    What colour should we paint the living room? - please your self, you are better at things like that than me.
    Later, after decorating, "I am not sure about that colour" - you chose it, would be my response.

    "We need a new bed, carpet, curtains etc. etc". - "Well go and get what you want I am not bothered";
    Two months later, "we could really do with a new bed etc. etc".
    "Well, I told you a few months back to just get what you want, but you didn't bother."
    "but its so expensive" "well, if you had bought it when I said, it would have been cheaper as the price has gone up 20% now"

    #25 when I was young Marian my mother used to say I had St. Vitas Dance. If she saw me today she would say I had Sleepy Sickness. JS

    I was very young when I was born. This morning I surpassed my previous record of consecutive days of waking up. I'm going for a new record tomorrow.

    You could have been older than most if you were premature David. The next thing to do if you don’t wake up, is to just sleep walk. JS

    This thread reminds me of an occasion circa 1968 - I was apprentice on watch with the Second Mate on the Albany, a Furness ship, I won't name the Captain as I had a lot of regard for the man, but he was a real p*sshead. The voice powered phone from the Captain's bedroom woke us both - around 2 in the morning. The Second Mate answered and I heard shouting from the other end of the line. "You'd better get down there, he has a problem, something about being paralysed." So off I trot down to his bedroom to find the rather large Captain thrashing about on his bed telling me he had probably had a stroke and lost the use of his legs. I was quite concerned until I realized that he had put both legs into one leg of his pyjamas.

    Perhaps his legs were frightened to sleep on their own
