    getting older

    Jagbender's battle of the bulge
    The problems we face today are because the people who work for a living are outnumbered by the people who vote for a living

    Well look at the bright side....unlike some of us, at least you got your head together. I'm still working on that one.



    I cannot be blamed for what I say. So don't listen to what I write because I am clearly

    As soon as i got my head together it was when i realized that i was getting old.

    Now, i'm getting old with style


    The body falling apart will come later...
    Lo, there do I see my Father..
    Lo, there do I see my Mother
    And my Sisters and my Brothers..
    Lo, there do I see the line
    Of my people back to the beginning..
    Thay do bid me to take my place among them..
    In the Halls of Valhalla,
    Where the Brave may live forever.

    lol This.

    Not especially worried about death, but I notice with shock when someone 15 years younger than I am punches out.

    Fellow teacher was stabbed and shot dead by her estranged husband. Just in her 30's and had children.

    Younger brother's friend died of injuries after she went through her windshield on New Year's Day in the a.m. She also had children.

    Will be 50 in August (unless I fall off a roof, a truck jumps a curb, or a car crosses the median during my daily commute) and am grateful I've made it this far. Everyone seems to think they'll make it to 100.

    They won't.

    I just figured out my way around the gym after nearly twenty years. Damn...... Oh well.

    Looking forward to being a lean mean AARP cardholder.

    I'm working 4 12's and 2 8'S a week. I spend around 5 hours a week in the gym. 75% cardio and this shit is starting to take its toll on me. I can feel it. But the last thing I want to be is an old fat guy (no offense KOS). I play a lot of raquet sports against guys in thier 20's and god willing I will be 53 next month if my heart don't explode on the Raquetball court which it feels like it is going to sometimes. I'm starting to wonder if supps or hrt is the answer. Time to see a doc and see if that is a possibilty.

    It kind of puts mortality in perspective when people in your age range "checks out". Live life, have fun and "check out" exhausted!!

    This.

    Have seen a variation on that somewhere online. Googled and found this:

    “Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming 'Wow! What a Ride!'”
    ― Hunter S. Thompson

    Also from Hunter S. Thompson: "Buy the ticket, take the ride."

    By the way, he blew his brains out in 2005.
