a late time of life;
"old age is not for sissies"
"he's showing his years"
"age hasn't slowed him down at all"
"a beard white with eld"
"on the brink of geezerhood"
a prolonged period of time;
"we've known each other for ages"
"I haven't been there for years and years"
the time during which someone's life continues;
"the monarch's last days"
"in his final years"
- He hadn't stayed in a tourist court for years.
- The floorboards have warped over the years.
