    I came from a big family and had a lot of aunts and uncles, over time they have passed away until there is now only one left and she is in her 90's.
    But this week the first of my many cousins died, he was 76 RIP James.

    Well CharlyB
    Firstly sorry for your loss of cousin James,
    In 2022, I attended nine funerals, it was quite un-nerving, mixed age groups and close family and friends.
    A decline in mobility, like not being able to do the things I would not of thought twice about ten years ago.
    As we start to reach that milestone, we start to think differently and approach things in a different way too.
    Personally, now I tackle jobs in a more safety way and dont take risks.
    I still believe age is a mind thing, if you think you are old, you will become old.
    ( remember the English guy who recently rowed his way accross the Atlantic was in his 70's )
    Stay positive respectfully JB
