This was a great idea for a challenge... and I would suspect it really was CHALLENGING? You did really well, incredible difference between young and older hands.

This is a classic Marjorie. Wonderfully captured.

Well I like them both. As you are both photographers with a heart, the comparison of the two posts says quite a lot about the photographers. Ricky's are a young man's shots - witty, a technical tour de force and fairly easy to take in. Marjorie's is a woman's capture - more inward focused, harder to identify with precision, gentler certainly (and I'm not being sexist), but possibly a little darker.

A distant almost-relative of mine was an almost famous photographer in the 50s who made studies of people's hands. Her exhibits were organised by trade; a baker's hands, an orchestra conductor's, a nurse's, a plumbers. Alas, I was too young when I last saw them to appreciate them now, but thank you both for this lovely, interesting, compassionate comparative study.

(I'm lazy, so I'll just copy and paste the same comment in Ricky's post.)
