Boy Howdy Does It!

I’m glad I got all that shit done yesterday because I’m gimped up like an old man today.

Wait, I am an old man now.

That might have something to do with it…

I keep forgetting about that.

    My Pappy had a pillow he loved that I inherited. It read “Screw the Golden Years”.

  2. The pain and stiffness we seasoned citizens experience after a bit of hard work is just proof we are alive. I’m 65, split and stacked two cords of wood today, mostly oak and red maple. Feeling it but happy I can still do that!

  4. Phil, your older post about lubricants: in this day and age, why the hell can’t we get a lube service for worn painful joints? I mean something that really works, I’ve tried glucosamine capsules and ‘magic’ creams, all expensive junk that do nothing to repair the sort of framework that no tinkerer would waste time on, but consign it to the junkpile: which is basically where many of us spend our last days.

  6. Cleaning the backyard and planting some bulbs for the wife put me down for the count for two hours in the afternoon. My mind thinks I am 12 but my body has to remind it every now and again!
