No clear answer why other than I tested positive for the flu. Miracle!
I remember you posting about your heart problems, good to see you recovered and doing much better.

Only 63, so I guess I'm a relative youngster here. Kinda like being on a Holland cruise, LOL. Do my own vehicle stuff as well as things needing attention around the house. I know that I'm not as physically able as I was ten years ago, but everything still works and I can do whatever I please to do.

I'll be 69 next May. I'had to survive cancer to jolt myself out of 40 yrs of depression. I didn't start enjoying life until I turned 60. Clogged arteries being managed with diet,cardio exercise and pills grin2

Just turned 77 still do maintenance but choose which major repairs to do. Cut and split firewood use a push mower which is a 3,8 mile walk but have occasional age related problems, The easy chair is deadly

Are we gonna add a senior citizen topic to the forum? Fill it with coffee and donuts. Open between 6am-10pm lights out! Joking aside its nice to have older individuals here.Much can be learned about cars and maybe more important ..Life. My dad is a 70 yr old Vietnam Veteran and his highlights of the day is walking the dog,coffee,and Dave Ramsey on the AM Radio back in Casper,Wy.

Thanks. Its changed my outlook on life. I'm calmer. Happier. No longer aspiring to be the CEO. I'm aspiring for flip flops and a beach chair lol.
