    Default OLD n NEWIES 55+ Age group here

    Hi,

    I have seen a thread in the newbies corner and knew that actually there are quite a number of 55+ like me starting or started or even re-started in photographly at this golden age.

    There is a group called "Siliverhair" but they do not have photographly hobbies there.
    So, I was thinking. Is is possible to group all those 55+ and let us meet up and discuss more
    on photographly like equipments purchase and also share our experiences etc.

    Thankyou and hope to see more of you here.

    Hi stanycjw,
    Will this group accept 50+ like me?
    Currently I am still working overseas, but still interested in your group discussions and pointers to share.
    Cannot join in your activities, but can share our experiences.

    Overjoyed to see this thread and its power to bring
    a two year lurker to come to the front. We welcome you
    to spend time sharing your expertise and experience in
    Kopitiam. Life I fancy is preparation for the next.

    So to answer the question:
    "What on Earth Am I Here For?"
    Humbly my nick will be on the number three list.

    It is pretty interesting to know that when you are 55+ and make
    sure the younger set don't ever call you "old" man or "old" lady
    you are turning the wheels back.

    Life will be just like riding a bicycle with 27 speeds and never
    be able to use all of them.

    Cheers to stanycjw and looking forward to the first meetup session.
    The rest of the gang in CS seems too shy to come out of their comfort
    zone of lurking.

    What a wonderful way of spending the non-essentials?

    Aha, you are ready to prepare to make the best
    use of your life.even before reaching 55.

    Most people forget two things:
    1) That life is extremely brief.
    2) That the home on earth is only as temporary as we live
    on this planet.

    Come let us gather together for a more meaningful
    moment to spread the fruits that we had gathered
    or the joy of our spirit and to reach out to others.

    my child, you don't need to be 55+ to qualify, no one is going to check your IC, so long as u have grey or balding hair, feel old but with young desires, sick of women but not sex, but most importantly...BE ALIVE..

    Hi all, I am arriving next Saturday for a short stay of only a week, to visit my wife and her new first grandson. Must hurry back for the start of the school year in Darwin, could try to squeeze in a cup of coffee and meet a few new friends. So include me on the list, will keep an eye on the thread.
