Good to hear it was a "Happy Birthday" @Determined.
For those not in the know- the Ulysses Motorcycle club is restricted to those intrepid over 40 years old bikers. They get the name from the Greek Ulysses, who got restless in his old age and went adventuring...again.

Haha @Smc.. it was only recently I realised that I qualified for Ulysses, I have always associated Ulysses with old people 😱 🤯

I usually like the old English @Smc but my tired mind is protesting reading that (or trying to) at the moment. LoL.

@Appleblossom, probably. Or in plainspeak, friends who've lived life with me.
@Determined, there's a few lines that always jump out at me- " 't is not to late to seek a newer world....to sail beyond the setting sun.... Tho' much is taken, much abides;... Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will, to find, to seek, to strive, and not to yeild."
My Yr. 7-8 English teacher introduced our class to this poem. I loved it then, still love the "never too late for another adventure" attitude of it.

English literature not my strong point but have always tried to look at what remains rather than what has been taken 😀.
