Either you will go, I know what you mean or the under 40 will just laugh. Laugh all you want, this is your future:eek:

I had to get reading glasses because I couldn't read the fine print anymore. A couiple of days ago I put them on when I was writing e-mails at work and now I cant see well on the computer unless I am wearing them.

Sucks

Getting old sucks.







But it sure beats the only known alternative.

At least you can SEE! I knew a fella with macular degeneration, and he would trade places with you in a New York Minute.

Being young isn't all it's cracked up to be.

What we may have in physical vitality we lack in money, assets, and wisdom.

A good line I heard recently on this idea.

Very simply put:

Getting old is just fine, means you're not dead yet.

I had my first indication I might be in the same boat last month during my FAA physical. My dad warned me it was coming soon...

"Youth is wasted on the young."


True story: As I approach 50 I have been getting a bit concerned about aging. All my junk still works and I don't have glasses (yet). Anyway I was talking to an old friend lamenting turning 48. He stated:" wtf are you talking about, you're 45!" I argued and he made me do the math and sure enough, I'm 45! I had been so focused on aging I had been subtley increasing my age. The good news is I gained two years:-).

That's a good story. I turn 45 in January, but I've been telling everyone I'm 45 already.

When you turn 50 there are just three things to remember.

1-Never pass a bathroom
2-Never waste a hard-on
3-Never trust a fart

My dad will turn 54 in a couple weeks, he always says that you're only as old as you allow yourself to be. He doesn't have any gray hair yet and has a pretty full head of hair so I guess either my sister and I were easy to raise or it's working :D

Then when you get old, you lose the physical vitality too.

A serious story I have lived personally.

When I was a young boy my Father was a nursing home administrator of a 200 bed facility. That was neat in some ways hard in otherw. He was very visible in the community so I had to be very careful not to get caught. And you can apply that portion to whatever you want.

The hard part was this. As the Administrators son you had two things. One you could go anywhere at anytime you wanted in the facility. And two you got volunteered for everything.

So what that means is on the third floor is where the people who have lost it lived. One lady sat at a table and rubbed pages of a coloring book all day long. Another guy was tied in his wheel chair so he wouldn't fall out. And all day long he cussed the brakes and the clutch on that wheel chair cuz the **&% mechanic didn't fix it right. Some of the people I used to talk to until they lost it.

So what does all this mean. I realized at a very young age that there was nothing I could do to prevent the possibility of sitting in that wheel chair someday.

I Just Better Have A Good Time Getting There.

The reading glasses thing hit me about 3 years ago. I can live with that. What I cant live with is not being able to do the work on these trucks like I used to. There is no way I could take on a project like my 45 at this point. I am trying to build a Defender 110 and am having most of the work done for me by the previous owner. I will finish it when I get it down here, but it really bothers me that I cant do what I used to. At least I have my health......knock,knock.

How old would you be if you didn't know how old you were?

That's what I think of as your "true age". When I divorced at 40, I genuinely felt 33, could pass for 33, and tried to live like I was. Now, ten+ years later, with my reading glasses perched on my nose and nursing a case of shingles, that notion is harder to defend... :D
