Can't remember where I got this from but it makes you think.......

How old would you be if you didn't know how old you are?

Got me thinking as well. Why should you not know your age? Would I be looking for my birth certificate? Would it help to look in the mirror?

It all boils down to time, I will look up the history of time, which leads into customs of the time. People couldn't set times to do things, all based on the movement of the sun. So they didn't have birthdates. How come the months and days then.

This could lead into habits and customs. How about marriage or did they swop around. Births obviously weren't recorded.

Think have got myself lost here with all my thoughts. x

I have lived by the rise and setting of the sun, its a wonderful way to live, spent most of my days outside and could tell the time by where the sun was in the sky. Love to be closer to nature this way. Its nice to lose oneself in our thoughts sometimes, especially when those thoughts bring peace, calm, joy and smiles, its a form of meditation or contemplation. :)

It depends on the time of day. When trying to get up in the morning I feel about 80, this does alter during the day and by lunchtime I am about 70 but after my exercise class (which is this afternoon) I feel rejuvenated until tea time then its down hill again before bed.

I did that on FaceBook too and came out at 49 which is better than my real 66 and I can't even turn that round to make me younger hee hee

Swop the figures of your age and see how young you are or old.

That's an interesting one lurcherman, but I do recall my father-in-law having problems about his date of birth as records were not around then only parish registers. and annieseed if I change my age numbers round it takes ten years off my age that's good isn't it??????? doesn't make me feel younger though sad to say.

I like to think I have a young mind but my body does not agree.

I am not over weight but to short for my weight.

Some say you are as old as you feel, so just pick up a little toddler and all will be well ;)

Some days in summertime I can feel 21 again, some days in winter I feel 90 years.

I have no shame in growing old.I will become 21 one day

Age is only a number. My favourite age was 33 - some years ago now! So 33 I will stay!
