I just had my first (Yeah, I know there's more coming) joint surgery in January. Ran, lifted weights, humped missiles and bombs for decades, and was felled hitting a damned golf ball.

You are lucky. I've had 6 knee surgeries. Doc told me about 6 years ago that I have arthritis. It only hurts every other day.

I'm 44
I traded my youth for wisdom and the only way I'll go back is if I can take my wisdom with me.

Just realized I hadn't seen this thread yet, usually sticking to Legal and Politics. Better for laughs.

Turned 18 on August 19th.

I'll be hitting 33 in November. Soon after I'll be 1/3 of a century old.

Hit the big 5-2 this year.

Who's old???

Just because my happy hour is a nap, doesn't mean I'm old. Nor when getting lucky means you find your car in the parking lot.

I would worry more if you and your teeth don't sleep together. Or when everything hurts and what doesn't hurt, doesn't work. Your back goes out more than you do. Your ears are hairier than your head. Your mind makes contracts your body can't keep.

But worst of all...When your birth certificate says expired on it.

Whew...got a bit of time yet...and plan to enjoy it as much as I have the first half.
