Another beautiful picture Frank:
I suppose it depends on what you class as ‘Old’.
I feel old sometimes at 61, but my Mum has just turned 95 so I wonder how she feels.
But if you’re thinking of antiques, it used to be anything over 50 years of age, but those goalposts have been moved now to reflect items of 100 years or more.
Therefore ‘Grandad’ here is no longer considered an antique, but he is old, the same age as me in fact all bar a month or so as my original teddy was stolen off my pram.
The other bear in the picture is Rembrandt, purchased in Holland in 1993 so he has a fair few years to go to qualify.
However, the ‘Old’ for my post today is an item of clothing that will clock up 42 years of age in August.
It belonged to my Dad, and I wore it for years. Now practically shapeless and threadbare, it has been lovingly wrapped in tissue paper and vacuum packed. I cannot bear to part with it as I have so few things that belonged to my father.
