Been feeling more aches and pains the last year or so, hair in my beard turning gray, and yesterday a dang tooth snapped while I was eating lunch.

I'm really missing my younger days.

Yep old age to me is an attitude and a state of mind. I'm not so worry about getting old as I am about acting old. Lol Just can't let that od man in.

When I retired 10 years ago at age 62, I jokingly told the doctor if you give 10 good years Iíll be happy. He said 10 years from now youíll ask for 10 more years. He was right.

I just can not remember names, but I was never real good at it. Jut do not have the stamina I use to have either. But lucky I have no pain.

I feel old, but I ain't old, I hope to be old lol. I keep digging because I hope I can be of use to someone, my babies, my siblings and my friends. Yes, getting older can suck but when you find yourself face planted in a crick bank, you pull yourself up, dust yourself off and keep moving forward. Getting old or feeling old, doesn't mean you gotta be a sissy. I'll be in the woods again.
