Sixty? It's the new forty.

Over the last couple of days, I have been looking at some of the comments, posts etc on the internet about John Sargeant and his situation on 'Strictly'. From what I've read, he still has a lot of support out there but what REALLY annoyed me was a comment on one site which referred to him as 'an old man'. He's 64, for heaven's sake!! Don't they know that 60 is the new 40? In case I haven't got my message across - 60 is NOT OLD!
Oh, and Arlene Phillips, one of the judges who has been less than polite towards him, is the same age and apparently, doesn't dance at all any more.
By the way, anyone who thinks I have a personal axe to grind here on this age issue is definitely barking up completely the wrong tree - completely.

Good grief! Well, I'm with you, and I have a way to go before I get to sixty too. Sixty isn't old - not young, but I wouldn't call it old!!

My Mum is 88 - now that's old.

88 is perhaps getting on a bit, Jay. That's all! ;)
