Hi Cassie 2 and welcome - "pleased to find people still running after 60"? Let me tell you I didn't even start until I was 68 and that was to do a marathon. I couldn't do even half a mile in one go but I worked at it and completed my first mara the following year. I've now done three. I wanted to do one this year (80th) and then stop but didn't make the ballot and I couldn't face the necessary fund raising (it drove my wife crazy the two times I did it, the other time I secured a ballot place). I thoroughly the running but was always slow and I've pretty well given up now. I know lots of folks go on after 80 and I wanted to, but I'm a bit unsteady now, the slightest trip and down I go. Many times I've come home with knees streaming blood and it ain't dignified, so now I'm a non-starter. In fact I don't think I'm really qualified to contribute here any more but they're an encouraging bunch and I don't want to give them up.

All the best, keep it up and God bless. You've at least another 20yrs in you by my reckoning.

TS - Thanks. I've actually already blown it up with my imaging software and have a good result - slightly pixilated but nothing I can't cope with. The playstation would come in handy though for one of my grandsons. Could you manage another as well for the other one?

TS - Superb colours in your pic. I'll have to plagiarise them sometime.
