General Discussion / Re: Liver spots, bad knees, hip(s) replacements needed and...

  LOL, Tony, you are getting old, you're wearing out, you're limits are getting shorter, what you used to do all day now takes you all day to do,  while not ideal, it's the best you have left,  enjoy those things that you can do, lamenting those things that you're no longer able to do is a waste of your valuable time and a stress you don't need in your life.
 
  *Accept -- The fact that you'll never be 30 yrs. old again. (even Jack LaLane couldn't beat it)
 
  *Adapt --  Lighten your pack, use a walking stick, shorten your hikes, whatever helps.

  *Over Come -- You do have options,  explore them.

  I've been there/done that,  It's depressing if you let it get the best of you,  accepting your limitations frees you to be open to changes that allow you to continue doing what you like,  at a slower pace.

  But I agree with you,  getting old sucks.

I have a hit list.
AC first.  Then.

Teeth
...the dreaded colonoscopy...
Knees
Hips
Back.

I'll be the bionic man.

Senior freckles.  I like that.

Do they do electrolysis for nose hair?  Breast reduction for old man boobs?  Butt implants so my pants don't fall down when I'm wearing my gun?  (Wolfy doesn't have that problem.  But my wife doesn't like overalls).

That is really nice.  I like the handle and the head has a neat texture.

I got new knees in Sept. and Dec. of last year and am literally hell on wheels now.  I can walk, hike a bit, ride my pedal bike, and crap like that.  I don't have liver spots, I have overactive pigment spots or senile freckles, haven't figured out which.

...I've been sitting in my underwear sweating for 3 days waiting for the One Hour AC company to GET MY CENTAL AIR REPLACED!!!!. 

"Sorry Mr. ?????.  I'm afraid it'll be Mon now.  We had an emergency to take care of." 

Well buster I'm bipolar with high blood pressure.  You're not going to like me Mon. 

Ok ok.  We are going to the river.  72 degrees year round with crystal clear water and a house with ice cold AC.  Nice to have options. 

See I'm all better now.  I didn't even cuss.  Here anyway.


What the Hell are liver spots anyway?  oops.  I get blood tests several times a year.  MY DAMN LIVER IS JUST FINE!  Dang it.  Old habits...


ok ok. I'm doing better... er.

I guess I wasn't all that good for a long time.

I bought the forged head from Adam Thiele, and hafted it with a piece of curly ash.  A chunk of elk antler on the butt, a little oil finish, a blade cover, and I'm all set.

With a stiff enough rope fiber that would make a fine flintlock brush to clean the pan out and get debris off of the metal around the touch hole.

  I just loves the smell of BP smoke in the morning.
