Moving OnUp

Moved into a new place and have been without Internet for a few days so am way behind on reading and commenting on blogs. My Latter Day Luddite computer skills isn't helping. In addition, I've gone from Windows XP to Windows 7 so have a new learning curve. Please bear with me.

One good thing about moving is getting rid of "stuff". Here is a pile going to ARC.
My sister, the insurance adjuster and her assistant were in a nearby small town and just happened to visit a thrift store. They spotted and bought these books for me. Thanks Sis and Little One.

The Martin Caidin book was copyrighted 1960.

The move is about 90% done, and the last storage shed gets emptied 1/15/15. New chapter in my life that I am looking forward to with good spirits. What is a bummer is once again being reminded I'm 70. I've always taken a certain private satisfaction in my physical powers. In my younger days could easily bench press twice my weight and work nearly everybody into the ground. Not so today. Oh well, life is a bitch, and then has puppies.

Once again I remember the wise words of my late father.

"The best way to move is with a 5 gallon can of gasoline and a book of matches".

I was dragged kicking and screaming from XP to 7. It sucked at first, but I got used to it - eventually.

Good luck with the move and new chapter. As for the physical changes, I'm 62 (soon to be 63). Are you telling me it gets worse...? :-)

ROTF... Yeah, that would work... Glad things are going fairly well!

Up until 63-64, I could still kick ass. Now I'd be lucky to kick shins. What got me was borderline Type-ii diabetes along with knees going bad. Goal for 2015 is losing 5-10 lbs a month.

He was a cowboy philosopher. Damn, but I miss him.

The main thing I've learned about aging is, the older I get, the more excuses I also have for being the way I am!

Great positive attitude you have about moving, I'm finding the older I get the more resistant to change I become!!

Old NFO said...

Yeah, understood. But he raised you well!
