Showing your age

Post by FrenchForumSurvivor »

I've just had a quick look at a few profiles, mainly those members shown as last posters on the Board index page, and it seems that many are shy about declaring their age, Ally, crakpot and Archy being the exceptions I've found so far. You don't need to input your birthday, just put the year of birth in your Profile, and your age will be listed, along with your location if you've noted it.

I only put mine on because Sally keeps asking "What age ARE you?"
I think more interesting would be approximate location.
Gone to better place, which, quite frankly, could be anywhere.

Quite agree. It's annoying when people ask for information and also when they talk about what is happening etc where they live, and it's a mystery.

I'm sure you can work it out, given what I said in the OP.

You wrote four lines, too many words for albmf to process. By the time he read through all four he forgot what the post was about. :lol:

I disclosed on a post relating to poor memory (prompted by Joinfrance) that I was 62. Given that, I’m now very embarrassed to admit I’m actually only 61. In my defence, I did already say my memory’s not good! We have a house in Brittany, not far from Jugon les Lacs and Merdrignac. Lived there for a year a few years ago and now live near Birmingham, visiting the Brittany home when we can.
