I'll be the old fart in a wheelchair going to see Led Zeppelin or the Allman Bros. :)
I'll be right beside you singing wheezing Hell most of my singing over the years sounded like a cat that got his tail stuck in a car door traveling at 60 mph

When I play Serious XM on my smart phone, the sound comes thru my Bluetooth hearing aids. :oops: It even pans back and forth from hearing aid to hearing aid when I listen to a group like Led Zeppelin. Yup, I'm getting old-er. It is kinda nice though.
I thought getting old would take longer.

I have Bluetooth capable hearing aids as well. They are nice to listen to music without anyone else knowing or hearing it.

Also, answering your phone thru them. :) This is one of the nice things about getting old. Waking up with a new pain you've never had before isn't so nice.
Ouch, where'd that come from? I've never had a pain there before.

never thought I'd be hanging around with so many old folks
Is it just me or whenever you're around people your own age do you think, do I look that old? My PCP said to me, you dont think you're getting old?
I really didn't until this throat and neck cancer hit me last summer. They say the 7 weeks of chemo and radiation can age a guy around three years. I think I got a double dose of aging. I really feel older.

Lazy,

Make the best of what you have. I feel the same way from all of the rheumatiod/psoriatic arthritis drugs for twelve years. The pain is little compared to the fatigue. I just do what I can for the day, last Tuesday I moved fifty ton of rock one at a time, mostly to prove I still could. Paid the piper for three days but satisfied. You don't have to do it all in one day. Better comes in small increments.

I hear ya but sometimes I push myself too far. On top of everything else, my lower spine kicks out 50 degrees. I'm a mess. I'm paying for being a carpenter for 25+ years. It's all catching up with me.
The guys at the senior home know they're getting old when the nurses give them viagra to keep them from rolling outta bed at night.

X2 on doing want you can each day and being satisfied with that progress. I got covid nine days ago and had to quarantine. Worked in the yard/garage everyday. Didn't work at a blazing pace and took a lot of breaks. I was determined not sit in the recliner. Got a lot done and dropped about 13 pounds.
