    At what age should people accept getting old and just giving up working toward getting healthy ?
    I'm pushing 69 but have no intention of surrendering to the rocking chair chair just yet !

    Going on 11 weeks straight not missing a beat and my body is telling me , (YOU CAN AND WILL DO THIS) ....! I really don't know when it's time to quit but I will let you know when that time comes !

    How will l know when that time comes ? When I can no longer progress !

    I’d say keep pushing until you drop dead. The earlier you accept that you’re old- the earlier you croak

    I'll be 66 in about 3 weeks. I've almost expired a few times in the last 6 years. I'm hooked up to a machine 3 times a week for 4 hours, I can't count the times or the weeks I've spent in hospitals the last few years. But Im still doing all I can to stay on the green side of the turf!

    Dango, My wife and I may well be to oldest kayakers on the lake. At least the oldest husband and wife paddling. We walk 2 miles in the morning on days we dont paddle and 2 miles every evening. We only paddle 6 to 8 miles now. Used to do double that and have paddled 30 miles. Bicycle has gotten to dangerous for my wife. She also had a brain tumor removed and radiation for what they could not take out. Radiation put her down badly. You have to keep moving or the buzzards start circling. Our 55th wedding anniversary is in 10 days. We are both past the average life expectancy.

    I glue trapped 4 mice in 2 days, and I just saw a mouse run around a glue trap. there was room for one more on that trap, it had three already.

    I thought I had "a" mouse. it's more like cockroaches, if you see one you have a million.

    Yes the unknown can be frustrating not knowing what actually happened to it.
    In my case, I was in my boat talking to a friend as I was preparing to get underway, I leaned over just a bit while the phone was between my chin and shoulder, it fell, hit the railing, splashed into the water and looked like a dodger as it went down down down to the bottom in 80 feet of water.... If not for wearing a very expensive Hearing Aid I would have jumped in to save it. Thank goodness it was backed up but iCloud and all my information was retrieved and placed on my new phone.

    Condolences micro, I apologize but I just could not like your post as it brings back memories of a dear friend that went through the same predicament. It’s painful to watch them go through their last days.:(

    Crash!
    I was just fixing lunch and emptying the dishwasher, went to put something away in a cabinet that also holds my liquor when, CRASH, I knocked a Marsala bottle out into the tile floor.
    Luckily the bottle was almost empty. I got the big pieces of glass up with only 1 sliver in my thumb, now I'm waiting for the wine to dry so I can vacuum the floor then mop it.

    Guess I'm getting too old to multitask.:D

    I have knocked my change jar off the top of my fridge twice in the last week. It still hasn't broken and I have learned absolutely nothing from this as my change jar is once again sitting on top of my fridge.

    The next time you knock your change jar off the fridge it will break. Put your change jar somewhere else!:)

    I lost all the pictures on my phone besides the ones I had saved on snapchat. Years and years worth :(
