Well, I guess it's now official - I'm almost an Old Fart. Yesterday, I got the "Happy Birthday, Senior" letter from the Head Office of my Bank. It informed me that as of May 1st, my accounts will be transferred to a Senior bank account with NO FEES. I didn't know whether to laugh or cry. I know it's about time I got the NO FEE accounts but still, I'm not sure I'm that proud of it. I guess I now also qualify for the half price Senior discount at the Rec Centre too. And the Senior Coffee at Mcdonalds. And I can go to the local University without paying course fees. My Big Plan was to become a perpetual student once I could go for free - well, I still pay Student Fees & Book Fees so FREE is relative - but I still can't afford it. I have another 3 years to pay on the big bill & my credit card isn't too healthy at the moment although I hope to pay it off next year. So, maybe I can be a perpetual student by 65 - I mean that's only 5 more years, right???
