Turned Out Nice Again

Horribly Aged Icons Of Our Youth.

Recommended Posts

There's nothing more reassuring of your own mortality than seeing celebs you grew up with ageing. And it doesn't even need to be badly. Three that bring it home to me are Burt Reynolds, Clint Eastwood and Harrison Ford. I remember them young, vital and handsome. If age can catch up with them, it can catch up with anyone.

Motorhead at Glastonbury.

Lemmy had that "what the ******'s going on, who are all these people in my living room?" Look about him that you see in the demented.

Yes plenty of people have strokes. The problem is that most people don't recognise the signs until it`s to late.

Two years after a stroke you have made just about all the recovery you`re ever going to make.

Anyway, you've turned my mind to the lovely Sally Thomsett, I used to have the hots for her when she played opposite Richard O'Sullivan.

One thing that has aged well, is Man About The House. Still hits the sitcom spot. It was considered pretty avant garde back in the 70s I believe.

You don't have to be anywhere near old to have a stroke.

Many men and women have them in their 40s and 50s

They are one of the leading causes of disability in the UK (on average a third of stroke victims dies, a third make full recovery and a third are left permanently impaired by the condition)

You're preaching to the converted there. He doesn't harp on about it but CD posted that he had had a stroke a few years ago and I would guess he was then in his 40s.

Yep I am fully aware of the fact and I have seen CDs post on it in the past

Should have added the plus one.

My stepson was a victim of a major stroke relatively early in life so I have seen the consequences all the way from the original admission to AE through emergency surgery to seeing someone confined to a bed and a wheel chair for the rest of their life.

Believe me it is something to be avoided if you can.

The point is most people blithely think that those with disabilities were born that way when in fact the conditions are quite often acquired later in life

Oh yes, I do harp on about it !! It`s my duty....?

It was like being one of 3 or 4 passengers on a jumbo jet that crashed and walking away with a bit of a nose bleed!

The type of stroke I had will kill instantly or often within a few days, there`s an 85% chance of death.

Bossybabe is also a `stroke survivor` (I hate that!) , had too give up riding her motorcycle.

Gosh I have never done this stroke thing! I'm sure Bossy will just about fit on my motorcycle, although she may be a bit wide! Anyway a lot of tv characters I remember from being a tiny lad are old now, and so am I!

It did occur to me recently that the coming Premier League season will probably see the first debut appearance for a player born in the 21st century. I think that will make me feel pretty old when it happens.

Well when I started coming to this site I assumed that other members were around the 23 to 25 age bracket

I was very wrong.

Going by the fat/fitness thread, everyone seems to be 55, including me!

Maybe another season to go? I thought technically, 2000 was still 20th century so a 2001 born player would only be 15 & 1/2 at the **** end on this coming season.

On this note, someone started in work this week and for the first time I'm old enough to be their dad.
