Oldies

So, it happened. Got a special offer from Swisscom just for the over 50's for a notebook (apparently some new type of electric typewriter) installed with the internet (whatever that is - some sort of newspaper thing - also called the worlwide web apparently) and a nice man will even come round and plug it into me so I can get meals on wheels more easily. Hoping he'll pop out and get me a bit of shopping and maybe dig the garden over while he's here.

At your old age, it is darn near time.

Re: Oldies

It's OK, love. I'm just here collecting old paperbacks for the blind. Have you got any you don't want any more? Why don't you just nip into the back room and get them for me. I'll wait here by the door... no, it's ok. You can leave the door open. I'll make sure nobody creeps in...

Re: Oldies

They haven't approached me yet. Maybe they think I'm already pushing up the daisies.
