At 69, I look back on life and repent of all of the times when I was successful in resisting temptation.

You guys are funny, sad, scary and encouraging all at the same time. Live it up while you can!

No getting I have made it. Just hit 5-0 this past December. Wake up most mornings with aches and pains( mostly from a trashed back) but consider that a good thing since I have friends that were younger who are now pushing up daisy's!!! Still able to work 50+ hours a week on a job and do offroad fab work in my shop to make extra money to buy shooting irons with. No use complaining since most don't care or don't listen so I'll just say life is good!!!!!!!

Getting old beats the alternative, at least for the single guys.
41 & counting.

My doctor said:

"Any day you wake up in your own bed is a good day.

And if you can get up and out of that bed it's a great day."
