    As I tell my patients, if you can get up in the morning and complain about something you've got the problem half licked! I seem to creak, crack and pop a lot more than I used to also.

    Pull up your "Depends" and quit complaining. It's better to be over the hill than under the hill.

    I'd rather get up in the morning and look down at the grass rather than look up at the roots.
    I'll take the snap crackle and pops from my body, and I'm, glad i can still take my Meds. Bulge

    The long, long, long, run of the Rolling Stones and Jagger's continued ability to perform gives me hope.

    I also saw an aging trapshooter, who had not shot trap much in over 12 years, pick up a new to him Ljutic that he had run 200 shells through prior to taking the line. He is also adjusting to a chair (walking is difficult for him) and "re-learing" technique, in his words. Oh, he shot a 94 from the 27 at Redlands yesterday. Talk about gray power!!! But he is getting forgetful, he forgot to declare vet status, had a score that would have won vet, but lost out on $12.00 in winnings. Damn old age, causes forgetfulness...

    Such performance gives me hope.

    Ahab -- Isn't that the truth. I was just telling my wife that when I am laying in bed, before I get up, I'm wondering whats going to be painful today? I guess it is better than tagging my toe. Yep - they lied to me about these "golden years" too.

    I've heard it said "the only thing "golden" about the "golden years" is the pee.
    'Course it probably means your not drinking enough water!

    They are now giving me VIAGRA I needed it when I was 45, now they use it to keep from rolling out of the bed.

    And I keep pointing north when I am out of bed.

    Was involved in a shootoff no long ago. Me (58) a Vet and a Senior Vet. I shot a 24 and the other two shot 25. The Senior Vet turned to the Vet and said"We got rid of that damn kid, now lets get on with the shoot off." Can't wait till I grow up! Jake
