Likewise we have been together for 50 years, and never a cross word !rofl::click on the link

The row that ensued was the first of our married life and, to date, is still the biggest one we have had!
It didn’t help that I was supposed to be looking for a car for Mrs97!

There can't be many couples that still have essentially the same hair styles 50 years on Milady and I are on about 45 years together - not wed, I don't like to rush into things - but our photos wouldn't reflect such a similarity


Lang may your lum reek, as I believe they say!

I confess I had to look that one up.... not a phrase we use down here much. Not that I have heard anyway. Maybe I will give it a go and use it tonight.

She explained that she had worked in the cardiology department for years, and the majority of the time she tested people that were actually ill and was surprised to see a perfectly normal result
We have (like a lot of people) a blood pressure tester at home that my wife uses every day and is annoyed when I try it, as it reads just the same as 30 years ago 120 over 72
120/73.Close enough Gordon.lol.

Be careful out there!

If you have an ECG of any type. Be very careful who gets to know about it.
The first one I ever had was for an Int C license and done by the local Cardiology Dept who, even though it was normal, put the fact on my medical records. The DVLA immediately suspended my HGV License.
It took a barrage of phone calls and unanswered letters before it was re-instated 3 weeks later.
The DVLA simply assumed that as I had undergone what it termed an "Investigation" There must be something wrong with me. I believe my licence
was re-instated without any reference to the doctors involved and know without the courtesy of an apology.
If I'd had a proper job at the time it could have been a big problem.

Yes Robert, When I tell the HGV D 4 Medical people I have had a stressed ECG they immediately go into panic mode.
