Comment being shared all over Facebook now is, “I didn’t think getting old would happen this soon”. That rings true today with my sore body.
My recent automotive purchase, the Ford Taurus, had the bottom radiator hose come loose. No big deal. Got out the small floor jack I’ve had for decades, jacked it up, loosened the hose clamp, slid the hose back into place, and tightened the clamp. A one tool fix (screwdriver) not counting a flashlight. Took maybe 20 minutes.
My body is taking longer to recover. The same body that once did 50 mile hikes for the hell of it and then went out for beers.
I do keep exercising. In a year, yes a year, have taken off and kept off 50 lbs. Only a 100 more to go.
I’m still a stud in my head until I see myself in a full length mirror. Oh well, just suck it up and keep putting one foot in front of the other. And, of course, whine about it.
