    It was a lot more fun being in my 20’s in the 70’s than being in my 70’s in the 20’s!! And I agree.

    And the price of birthday candles by the dozen isn't getting any cheaper, either.
    I think I'll go back to the big fat number candles.

      Don’t want to sound like I’m complaining my life is pretty darn good, but I miss running. It’s like my legs forgot how to move smoothly and my brain can’t make them behave.

          Most definitely but I'm sure that my wife would disagree.

            20's in the 70's, I never even thought about 70's in the 20's. It just was never going to happen, now I don't remember 20's in the 70's, so not sure that happened either!

                I don't know that I'd agree with that, Randy. In my 20s I was working my a** off to support my family, especially after going in the financial hole courtesy of Uncle Sam calling my army reserve unit up for a year (pay for a private then was $99 a month...living off post, with separate rations and housing we pulled in about $200 total, too little to live on much less pay on debts back home.). After release from active duty I was too tired and broke to do much but dig out of that hole and advance my career.

                Now (I'll make 80 next month) I at least I have the time to pursue less pedestrian endeavors. Even with the aches and pains of ageing, I wouldn't want to repeat my 20s. Now I can also not worry about the future of my children, all of whom are successful in their own right. And as a bonus, I don't have to worry that I'll die young!

                  I was on vacation with the Marines in sunny Vietnam for a few of those years. And worked mine off after that too. But it was the start of the game not the back nine! Miss those challenges.
