You know you’re getting Old when…………

You know you’re getting old when the local MP (Member of Parliament) sends you a letter congratulating you on your upcoming Birthday!

….but did he have to add a trivia footnote saying….

Did you Know? In 1954, the first round-the-world nonstop jet plane flight, taking 45 hours and 19 minutes was completed.

A WOMAN DOES NOT LIKE TO BE REMINDED OF HER AGE !

(Next thing you know, I’ll be getting a letter from the Queen of England congratulating me on my 100th Birthday).

But…….seriously……. as you can see by the photo below of my older brother and I standing in front of the Yarra River with the city of Melbourne in the background – there were NO tall buildings or skyscrapers in Melbourne when I was young.  Now that does make me feel old.  I must have been about 5 or 6 in the photo below (and my brother a year older).

And the city skyline viewed from The Treasury Gardens to the east of Melbourne CBD (which is where I take many of my duck photos near the pond).
