I am old.

My new Winter coat.  Allegedly wind proof and waterproof.  I havent tested it out yet as since its arrival we have had gales and rain which the coat might withstand but I wouldnt.

The Dawn Patroller took these photos.  I wasnt allowed out of the car.

We were returning home after a visit to my g.p.  Despite my variety of complaints I do not bend his ear frequently.  Which sometimes pays off.  As he  listens.  He also tells me I am old.  But sifts the wheat from the chaff and scares me to death by ordering future tests for things I wasnt aware were a possibility.  Anyone else had a Doppler Test?

All I said was my legs were behaving strangely.

Nah then we have an author in the family..  My eldest daughter published her academic tome.  

She has also just moved house. Here are her two boys.  Trying out the new home and new floor.

Then we have visiting these two.

Next week and are currently trying to bomb proof the house. Wee boy just started walking.

This grandson has a cold so is banned.

And between you, me and the gatepost there's another one due early next year.

I am old.

This is the first time I've heard of a Doppler test. Your grand kids are ever so cute.

Your title reminded me of this poem.
“You are old, Father William,” the young man said,
“And your hair has become very white;
And yet you incessantly stand on your head –
Do you think, at your age, it is right?”

“In my youth,” Father William replied to his son,
“I feared it might injure the brain;
But, now that I’m perfectly sure I have none,
Why, I do it again and again.”

And my answer to your title is - You are certainly not. Just look at the colour you chose for your coat. Go get 'em girl! Go, go, the Oldies!

I only remembered this morning but yes I have had the doppler test - on the carotid artery in my neck. It's ike the ultrasound when you are pregnant but they press down a bit harder. Took about 20 mins. Painless. Take extra tissues to get the gel off -they never give you enough☺
