The Senility Prayer

Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
The good fortune to run into the ones I do
And the eyesight to tell the difference.

Spot on!

Just to add that when I'm doing up those shoes - I like to see if there are any other things I could do at the same time while I'm down there anyway! There will come the day when bending down will be a distant memory of limber times?

Thanks for the link HC. I think every council should have someone who publicly holds them to account like this site.
