You listen to the music on the radio and decide that it is complete shit compared to the stuff when you were younger.

You are scared to go on a roller coaster.

You remind the "kids" about the days when we didnt have the internet or mobile phones.

You see all the special effects in films and think its amazing how they can do it now.

You dont like flying anymore.

Good morning MD,

Well I was enjoying the first day of a long overdue holiday yesterday. Got stoned (used to the cannabis of my age group) and after the third joint? I could vaguely remember my 22 year old daughter bending over me smiling "I think I'll borrow both sets of car keys Daddy..." Add to that a few to many glasses of whiskey and yes, woke up thinking that Big Ben was standing next to my bed. Bong... Bong!! Bong!!!! This old hippie is really getting old.

Do you do the embarrassing "Dad dancing" yet?..you now the one.Think back to when you were 14 and you would watch your parents dancing at a family wedding,and piss yourself laughing...then die because everyone knew you were related to them?!

Yeah know the feeling... But to hear my own daughter asking "How does Valhalla look and feel Daddy...". That's fuel enough for some really good Dad verses daughter jokes. Thank god I have this place all to myself at the moment.

Reminds me, I have to book dancing lessons as Dad does have to do the first dance with his daughter on her wedding day. I'm more like an elephant if it comes down to dancing.
