    Hi @cad123

    That's great news, it's good news to know that your Drs are happy with you & your meds.

    It's a shame that I can't say the same !!!!!!

    Love the idea off you playing Basket Ball.

    I think that I had better keep away with that though !!!!!

    I'm bad enough going around Sainsbury's on my "electric scooter"

    Hi @cad123

    Yes mine is one off those with 3 wheels that looks like a motorbike.

    I treated myself when I hit the big 50.

    No that's a big "No No" in my book aswell.

    How are things this mourning with you ???

    Do you manage to get out and about very often ???
