I just jumped in here to see if the advertisements would change to Viagra, Cialis, and Flo Max!

They don't. Someone should let NODTKU know he's missing out on some targeted add dollars!

Tack

It's a "senior" thread.
I don't need those pills to help get a aching stiffness, I need one to remind me what to do about it.

Remember, old guys automatically get shorter "life" sentences.

Had some pain in my right hand a while back and had trouble shooting my G36. Got a different mouse and now the hand is OK. I paddled my small kayak a little over 7 miles today and will peddle about 13 miles tomorrow on my trike. Also walk about 2 miles in the evening. Eyes are not what they used to be. I have some trouble holding a sight picture. Hopefully past prostate cancer. Finally getting the weight off from the meds. I am under 175 lbs and need to lose some more. Had to get orthotic insoles for my shoes. We have to do outside stuff early in the morning as it gets very hot here so I am usually up around 5 AM. I have been using the 25 yard indoor shooting range because it is air conditioned and I can shoot in the afternoon. Limits what I can shoot. I guess I am not doing too bad for 72. Most of the people I paddle with on Monday, Wednesday and Friday are retired and pretty active. We usually paddle 6-12 miles. We were doing hikes but my wife's knees wont take cross country anymore.

Yeah, what Gello said! But seriously, if your hurting now at 22 you're in trouble...I hit 40 last January and could suddenly feel every old Army and Football injury I ever suffered.

Default You know your old when...

The nose hairs you tear out are gray...

College girls call you Sir...

Your no longer annoyed with the Icy Hot and Viagra commercials on the History channel...

For the record, I'm still annoyed with the Icy Hot and Viagra commercials.

If I had known I would live this long, I would have taken better care of me!
Darvon....I had forgotten all about that and the little yellow pills that I think were called bennie's. Man...I wish I felt that good now as I did when we had them.
I will be shooting again in about six months and can't wait. Right now I'm on OX and Prunes and don't know which is worst, the medication or the rehab.
