So, I got one year older this month. I snuck it past yall (appears snuck is not a word-is now) by lying on the birthday question. Does anybody answer that honestly or am I just a liar liar pants on fire?

anyway

I am getting old. I've been noticing a stiffness in my fingers for a while now. This very morning, for the first time, it actually interfered with my rolling a joint. Thats funny if you think on it, painful joints preventing the rolling of pain relieving joints. I dont mind getting older. Never get depressed about like I see with some folks. Shoot, if yall knew me yall would know that its a miracle I have made it this far. I remember clearly hearing my parents say I would never see 21. Been shot at, lost to a few bulls, lost a few fights, been married twice and divorced the same amount (funny how that works) of times. I've worked hard all my life and have been brutal to my hands.

So, take care of your hands. It may or may not help but now I wonder. I am not sure what I am going to do about it. I guess just monitor it and see if its going to get worse or learn how to treat it. I do see a bong with one of those fancy flameless lighters in my future though.

Ok, thanks for letting an old man ramble on. :ignore:

No, its not old really, but I warn ya, ya start noticing aches and pains that you remember older folks talking about. I'm still having a good time and all, but some things are changing. I do have this incredible urge to trade the ole 63 F100 in on a Corvette though. Middle Age Crisis?


Just kidding on trading my ole truck in. I just had a newer truck stolen. I will probably spend the insurance on my older truck and get rid of this stupid minivan I am driving around.

See how that happened, we were talking about age and I got sidetracked and started rambling about Corvettes and old trucks.

hee hee TM, I have parts that are wearing out as well. Hard work has it's rewards, but it takes a toll on the body after a time. Some mornings my fingers are so stiff that I have to peck type my responses. (and spell heck everything!) :p
My right shoulder is shot from years of abuse on the end of a shovel and/or rock bar. A couple of mashed disks from a bull doing a little jig on my back, back in the 70's, or 40+ years of colts and/or bad horses. I'm not sure which :p
The old knees start aching after only a few hours of the up and down hiking the hills. My nose ain't as straight as it was 40 years ago neither. But I do find it easier to keep it out of other folks bidniz now'days... :)

Hence,.. my sig' line..:p

I've NEVER considered tradin' my truck for a Corvette tho'.... You may be losing touch with reality there my friend...:rofl:

Happy BIrthday Tex!!!

I turn 45 on friday, and the key to staying young is lying about your age.
If it's one thing I've learned in my 29 years, that's it!!
Hick, you are right, hard work takes it's toll on the body but not, I suspect, as much as 20 years layin' on a sofa eating chips.
Hows that old saying? If I'd known I was gonna live this long, I'd have taken better care of myself!!!
Yes take better care of your hands... and your KNEES...

Oh, Tex, that's not old--I have a daughter almost that old :giggle:.

And yeah, this getting old is tough. My fingers and hands are stiff and arthritic. My knees are bad from years and years of working on them. I have deteriorating discs in my neck from a rear end collision when I was 30 or so. However, I have to agree with Edgy--even with this beat up body, I am still in far better condition than those that have spent their lives as couch potatoes.

If only I could be that young again:)

Muscle pains and stiffness does not bother me as much as losing eyesight and hearing:(
What I am most annoyed with is the amount of time it takes to recover from what most would consider minor illnesses, like a cold or flu.I use to recover from a cold in a couple of days now its a couple of weeks:(

Muscle pains and stiffness, aches and mid life crisis, much better than the alternative.....


Happy Birthday Tex!

Hopefully it spread to your fingers and did not permanently transfer there..which reminds me of a lil joke...

2 scariest moments in a mans life???

First time he can't aquire "stiffness" twice...and the second time he cannot aquire "stiffness" once. :)
