    All joking aside, I noticed that almost no one turned their head to look right or left. Necks do get sore and harder to move, and it's dangerous.

    BUT these people were a lot older than 70. Poor choice for a cutoff!
    Yes it is a poor choice for a cut off. I am 70, have all my own teeth, don't drink vodka, have regular eye exams paid for through socialized medicine every six months, can't think of any downsides. Oh, yes, have all of my faculties, cause still work full time in healthcare.

    The cut off in Ontario is 80, then you get called in by the DMV to do written test. Do, I think I have made a point here.

    Also, 70 is not considered OLD any longer, and I hope most of you reach it!

    Just make sure you keep your cane in the back seat so it doesn't get wedged under the gas pedal or brake.

    Note to Odinn - brace yourself. Tickle is considering whether to rip out your throat.

    tickle has more subtle means than ripping out a throat.

    tickle, I forgot that you are older than I. To me you are still a spring chicken, gardening, making stained glass, not even retired yet.
