Yup----As i get older the ackes and pains get worse. Heart goes to heck, back is sore. Each bump and bruse takes longer to get rid off. Dr sends you for stress test and of course your prostate gets bigger and then those test to do. The odd biopsy starts and you wonder if getting older is such a good idea. Pill popping is the norm---Dr said so. This is the golden age. Retirement is staring you in the face. This is called going to hxxx in a hand basket.

Well you asked.

Hi Doug..........just 58 wait ,it gets better............everything Chester said (except the prostate) but us girls are not left out we get to do the mam..grams and they are oh so much fun

Would I go back to 58 ? in a heart beat! would I go younger? ...........no don't think so, even with all the aches and pains don't think I want to go back to little kids,up all night..doctor visits.......being home while everyone is out having fun...WAIT what am I saying I still have all that except the little kids part. Oh well ,life is fun live everyday as if you love it!and try to go camping more often with the grandkids ..it is more fun to take along their parents then you get to set and watch them worry about ALL the things you use to when they were little and it just doubles the fun of camping.

Beats the alternative!! Birthdays are good... the more you have the longer you live. I have a couple of friends who will be forever young. If they could, I'd imagine they'd trade places with me in a heartbeat, aches and pains and all. Embrace those pains, they tell you that you're alive.

58..Why you young pip...
I got 10 years on you. Had a stroke a few years ago and it took a while to relearn some things. AND now I've got those little white pills, little pink ones, Blue capsules, And a couple I don't even rember what they are for. Some for heart, some for colesterol, some for bloodpressure, something for the arthritis and some to make one pee. to get rid of the fluid the others make your body want to store. BUT the Doc says if I want to keep going --Take them, and I do. Figure I've got another 25 good ones left and I'm going to make the best of them. Mom's 97 and going strong so mabee I've got a chance.
I walk the dog to get rid of the leg pains and keep myself active with my carving club and making musical instruments. Doing a craft show this weekend.
Don't stop.
Don't give up.
Keep smiling.
Look for something new to do each day. Keep your mind and body as active as it will allow. Now that I'm retired I'm learning ALL kinds of things. It's like someone opened a door and there's light on the other side.
I'M NOT READY TO QUIT!
* * * *
Holy cow, did I say all that

That's what my mom says, old age ain't for sissies.

I am so lucky to have a mom to say that to me.

I became pregnant at an "old age" (35) just after my dear dad died. When the young (!) doctor asked me "And what does Daddy do?" I thought she meant my dad, not my husband, and I said, "Well, now that he's in heaven, I imagine he has finally made it to the NHL, and is skating on smooth, clear ice."

It's not so much the years that add up but all the abuse I put myself through during those years that takes its toll.
Claming off the North Shore in mud and water as a teen in the winter months could not have helped.
Nor, working off a fishing boat for a year in the North Atlantic.
Nor, haveing a oak log come rolling off the pile, and pin your legs against (a SOFTER) Beach log.
But I wont complain because now still cutting and splitting and selling fire wood keeps me out of trouble, and I sleep well at night, exept for that nightly trip to the potty.
My wife says I will die doing fire-wood well thats OK...no one in my family lived over 65 anyway and that's not to far off.
Will I die because I do fire-wood or will the fact that I do fire-wood kill me!
I think the former.
After the first few days I feel better.
It's the sitting around all winter, not doing anything that will kill me.

Yep, I feel that way often. But, I am 60 yrs. old and I walked a good 4 miles today pheasant hunting with my dog. I ache tonight. It is a good ache I might ad. Ponder this: Life is not a journey to the grave with the intension of arriving safely, in a pretty and well preserved body. But rather to skid in broadside thoroughly used up, totally worn out and loudly proclaim. "Wow what a ride".

After breaking my hip in 1977 then getting a total hip replacment in 2004 I feel great but my doctor seem to think I should slow down and take up...in his own words "a hobby...maybe stamp collecting or coins".
I just smiled...I felt nothing but pain for 27 years and it got so bad I could not tie my own shoes and now...no leg pain.
I got right out there 4 months after getting the replacement and cut my first truck load of logs.

Yeah! I'm pushing 68. A year ago spent 10 days canoeing a Northern river. Spent another month and a half getting my knees to work right again after all the portaging. Would I do it again?...In a heartbeat.
