The 1951 Club …. over 60s Guide to Carbon Dating.

My occasional gardener and odd-job man Watkins  (born 1927) has always been a man of some industry and enterprise.
He has recently started his own online dating website for the over 6os … the very aptly named

Ever vigilant as to the perils and pitfalls of online dating Watkins has compiled the following brief pictorial guide to help you with that vital step towards finding cyber-romance … the all important first date.

Please note this item first appeared on this blog in 2012.

Always be honest when submitting a picture for your online profile.

Always agree to meet in a public place on your first date.

Always remember that you will both be a little nervous on your first date … so make allowances.

A gift of flowers is always a nice touch …

Never give out personal details on a first date … they may come looking for you.

Don’t be too disappointed if they don’t measure up to your expectations …

Inter-species dating should be avoided at all costs as it will only lead to disappointment and heartache.

And finally … if you really hit it off on your first date … then a fond peck on the cheek is appropriate.

  1. This is one of the craziest blogs I’ve ever seen … but it does somehow almost make sense. Tell Watson that he may have been born in 1927 but he’s definitely not over the hill yet!!

  2. Lovely blog and wonderful pictures!

  3. I love the concept and the illustrations. I especially love that he is bringing humor to what can often be a humorless pursuit.

  4. Reblogged this on 1951 Club and commented:

    Watkins recently asked for a reblog. Until recently I thought it was a plumbing term. Apparently not it seems. So here in all its glory is The 1951 Club Guide to Carbon Dating as written by Watkins himself.

  5. Haha… this is so funny! Great post, Kris!

  6. A truly unusual blog with great illustrations. Nice to know that Watkins at age 89 still has it!
