There may be miles on some of us, but we have all learned to appreciate the finer things in life.

That's better than having the dentist tell you your teeth are fine but the gums have to go.......

I'm a recoil junky, with arthritis in my right wrist. Guess where that came from.

I'm at the point that for me to shoot my Model 29 with hot loads, I need to pop aspirin and shoot my 1911-22 for the next week if I want any trigger time. I still do it (but not nearly as much) and enjoy the push!

My chiropractor does an ultrasound massage on my wrist when it acts up. It's amazing!

I spent several hours in a tree stand two weeks ago while hog hunting. I did need to stand up every once in a while to keep my back from locking up.

I find that keeping myself hydrated is essential in preventing all sorts of health issues. If I'm not drinking a minimum of one gallon of water each day my body lets me know I'm a quart down.

Eating my daily last meal early and only drinking water till I go to sleep provides me a good night's sleep.

If you don't give yourself (your internal battery) a recharge with REM sleep every night, you are asking for trouble!

And I call BS on the saying, "Sixty is the new forty."

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Like many of my fellow old farts, I am paying the bill now for what I did to my body THEN. At one time, we all kept a bottle of Darvon Compound 65 in our rucksacks. Known as Ranger Candy. Wake up feeling the damage done yesterday, pop one and a swig from your canteen, and drive on.

If I had known I would live this long, I would have taken better care of me!

I would like to discuss the word "senior" ...I have all those aches and pains, but my 33th B-day was less than 2 months ago...
I already had a hip replacement 5 years ago!
