  • Old enough to know better!!

    My 20 year old mind set is in consent conflict with my 72 year old body. Wisdom does not always prevail and I pay dearly for the activity I think I should still be able to do. It is early, about 2 am on Tuesday and I am posting because I am in notable discomfort from the extensive yard work I complete yesterday while saying to myself, you’re going to pay for this. Being right is not always a good thing!!! Some Advil and a little Ben Gay seem to be bringing some relief so I will give sleeping another try! As I always say “next time I will Know Better!!

    Hope you get to feeling better fast. Been there, done that too. Sometimes it helps just to go stand in a hot shower, then hitting the bed. For some reason, we forget "next time" doing same thing.

      Randy, I can totally sympathize with you. Two full days of chopping and hauling limbs in my yard let me know I'm no spring chicken. Advil is yer fren.

        Randy, most of us get older at a faster clip than we get wiser.

            I just physically cannot do things now like I did them 5 years ago. Fortunately, there's a wage subsidy program for seniors here.
            I can get all kinds of yard work help for $10.00/hour. The guy that does most of it got burnt out of his cedar mill job last April.

                    This makes me feel better now. Walking over 5000 steps today and moving food in and around the house - then tomorrow it just continues, work with the tractor... Martin - only 70.
