I have just begun to wonder whether I'm too old for diving. Apart from my abortive attempt earlier this year I haven't been since last September.

There are genuine reasons for this not having been recently but I'm beginning to wonder if I've lost my moxy .......... and, NO, I don't mean my moxygoshthisitchesherpes, which I would glady loose (the cold sore one which is the only one I've got!).

I would like people to advise their age and whether they are still twin 12ing etc etc ................. so I can get a feel of how fast I will decline.

Take Matt, for example, who, according to some of the ladies, is 'pretty fit for his age' had been castigated by some for his kit entanglement risks. However, I can see some instances where a zimmer frame, far from being an entanglement hazzard, may actually provide the diver with protection from wreck impacts ................... provide a frame with unlimited attachment potential ............... a communal and portable deco station ................ a method to stretcher an injured diver ................ something to hang a towle on to dry ............. the start of a dalek suit ...........

Wow, perhaps it's not going to be as bad as I thought?

:teeth: :teeth:

Bloody kids ........... no respect for their elders .......... bring back the cane I say ............ like to get you over my knee with your pants down ................... oh FFS, now I've lost my teeth whilst muttering so much!!!

You are but a lazy wayward child I have several years on you and use twin twelves stages etc.
You need to ditch the FFM and get some cold water around your quivering jowls. Very envigourating (sp)?

Not 'til 28th July - as it stands.



Oh well, I'm really bored but I suppose that's no reason to inflict the same on others. Sigh, work it is then! :frown:
