    They call us ”The Elderly”
    We were born in the 40-50-60’s.
    We grew up in the 50-60-70's.
    We studied in the 60-70-80's.
    We were dating in the 70-80-90's.
    We got married and discovered the world in the 70-80-90's.
    We venture into the 80-90’s.
    We stabilize in the 2000’s.
    We got wiser in the 2010’s.
    And we are going firmly through and beyond 2020.
    Turns out we've lived through EIGHT different decades...
    TWO different centuries...
    TWO different millennia...
    We have gone from the telephone with an operator for long-distance calls to video calls to anywhere in the world.
    We have gone from slides to YouTube, from vinyl records to online music, from handwritten letters to email and Whats App.
    From live matches on the radio, to black and white TV, colour TV and then to 3D HD TV.
    We went to the Video store and now we watch Netflix.
    We got to know the first computers, punch cards, floppy disks and now we have gigabytes and megabytes on our smartphones.
    We wore shorts throughout our childhood and then long trousers, Oxfords, flares, shell suits & blue jeans.
    We dodged infantile paralysis, meningitis, polio, tuberculosis, swine flu and now COVID-19.
    We rode skates, tricycles, bicycles, mopeds, petrol or diesel cars and now we drive hybrids or electric.
    Yes, we've been through a lot but what a great life we've had!
    They could describe us as “exennials”; people who were born in that world of the fifties, who had an analog childhood and a digital adulthood.
    We've kind of “Seen-It-All”!
    Our generation has literally lived through and witnessed more than any other in every dimension of life.
    It is our generation that has literally adapted to “CHANGE”.
    A big round of applause to all the members of a very special generation, which will be UNIQUE.
