We’ll tell the naysayers to go take a hike - we're kids at heart and having so much fun! I’m sitting on the handlebars in the blazing sun whilst hubby's freewheeling our old pedal bike. So what if we're pensioners with graying hair we're both on the cycle, we don't have a care - we'll tell the naysayers to go take a hike!

Being in the age group depicted, your poem touched my heart and tickled my sense of humor, it reminded me of my husband and me and the things we do!

I think many elderly are more active now - just heard on the radio that 60 is the new 30!:-) hugs Jan xx

so true Rico I wish many were as active as my elderly mum, sadly she had a fall yesterday in the early hours - thankfully only cracked ribs - she sure is an amazing lady:-) hugs Jan xx
