Holidays in youth and old age

Left Jackie's to find it was raining -  pelting down in fact.  They are talking about the return of the snow on Friday.

Had a lovely evening at Jack's - caught up on all the news, of the holidays and families.  She gave us blinis and lasagne and apple pie and ice cream.

The poor Captain is still hobbling painfully about, but at least he can drive.

We talked a lot about the strangeness of getting older and older - and of the way we all have to carry truckloads of medication about with us.     When I was young and going on my holidays, I used to pack clothes for the beach, that sort of thing.  Now its a suitcase full of pills and potions with a few clothes squashed in round the edge.
