Soapbox Brown: Young pup or past it? I feel, at the age of 37, I am in the 'no man’s land' of the circle of life. I know this because of the following: 1.) I do not have to 'phone my nephew to come over and set up my new DVD player, but do need to check the instruction manual to do it myself. 2.) I no longer hammer down the motorway in the fast lane, going well over the 70mph speed limit, but I have not yet reached that age where I feel the need to hog the middle lane for the duration of my journey. 3.) When something outrages me on television I now begin to

write a letter, but have not yet ever actually posted one. 4.) I do not know which I am more concerned about, the places I am losing hair or the places I am now finding hair sprouting. 5.) I still know that sandals and socks are a no-no when it comes to fashion, but do enjoy removing my shoes when I get home to put on a nice pair of comfy slippers. 6.) When I get in my car I am still not at the age where I want to tune into Radio 4, but have reached the age where I much prefer the music on Radio 2 to Radio 1.

6.) When I watch football on television, I only know half the players on show, but remember almost all of the coaching staff playing several years ago. Lastly, 7.) Apart from heavy nights of ale consumption, I do not need to get up in the middle of the night to visit the toilet, but I do know that if I don’t make it pretty sharp

first thing in the morning then there could be trouble. One thing I loved at the age of 16, … erm, I mean 18, still do now and will do in the latter years of my life is a good yarn at the pub with a fine pint of Real Ale. Some things never change thankfully. Long live the pub! James Brown
