    Hello and thank you for the lists of words you have compiled and provided, I am very grateful.

    In the category of Descriptive Words for Age and Aging, I would like to address the descriptor “no chicken” and offer “no spring chicken” instead of, or in addition to. It is a phrase that I have used many times, likely because I used to hear my Mother say it. Thank you for your time and consideration.

    Kind regards,
