Welcome to the Madhouse Paul, I mean look at the state of the smilies some of then look as if they need one to one care, I think the term is "Challenging behaviour"!
Honestly it is a boating forum, but some forumites seem to have been stricken by the dreaded dementia and forgotton that, now where was I?
How frustrating when one walks into a room and can not remember why the went there, but its even worse when its the bathroom! :lol:
Enjoy.

There is a difference between growing old and growing senile. Old people can take their chances with the rest of us, but it's a kindness to show tolerance of senility.

Interestingly, that's what my old dad used to do when he didn't understand what was going on. I think you have revealed something you didn't intend, Mark. :lol:

Blimey! I'd forgotten that I'd joined this forum... And I'm a mere whippersnapper... Although I don't know who that grey haired old fart that I shave every morning is! :violin:
