Re: Middle aged Guy

Pure Scottish? Oh boy. Why do I envision language barriers and invisible undergarments?

Welcome to Switzerland. The Viaduct has some great Thursday evening expat evenings at Mike's Mousetrap (cheese stand). Middle-aged people are especially welcome!

Re: Middle aged Guy

What constitutes middle age these days?

My parents, who are all retired and in their 60's, are considered middle aged in my mind. In this regard...middle aged, to me, can be anything between 35-60.

Yet I am older than 35 but I do not consider myself middle aged. Vexing. Or am I in denial?
