Yup, the 'lad' turned up today. He was at least 55 going on 60, with grey hair, glasses and a mild and friendly disposition. He told me that the fellow on the phone, Jim, is 93 and still printing. I guess there's a lot to be said for the printing life.

He took the folding machine too. Now there's an empty space. [rubs hands together]

Coool! 93, and still doing what he loves?!?! And does the 'lad' know he's referrred to as such, and does he mind?

I'd say Jimbo calls every male he knows 'lad', and I'd say he's got a right to do so by now! He'll probably call me 'lassie', too, when I start hanging out at the museum (when I get time!).
