What do you want me to do, send you a towel for the back of your ears?  At 58 
I was still an every nighter.  Now I just dream about it once a month maybe.  
Damned sugar will shut that off in a hurry.  A round with the shingles 18 
years ago after trying to electrocute myself, and the posthepatic pain in the 
rib and diaphram area that NEVER goes away now controls what I can do at any 
given moment.  Sometimes I can't even pick up the coffee pot, the next day I 
haul 2 40 pound bags of salt down the basement steps at a time, and do it for 
400 pounds to fill the water softener and its a piece of cake, if you don't 
mind the pain in the arthritic hands.  I take several varieties of the 
chondroitan sulfate compounds or I might as well go shoot myself.

Yeah youth is wasted on the young, I remember it fondly...  Enjoy what you 
have, its largely a use it or lose it proposition.

Heck, they even have me back at work for 4 or 5 hours a day, and I think the 
exercise is good for me.  And I'm doing more thinking out loud about what I'm 
doing just so Dave can understand the reasons for what I do.  Dave is the 
fellow I gave most of my keys to back in 2002 when I retired.
