Ageing gracefully, without a doubt. Kindler, perhaps. Gentler, a bit more apt to wait before acting; but the old desire to poke someone in the chops is still present. These are the influences of marriage to a good woman no doubt.
Yup, there are days when I feel like I'm 60, in some ways I wish it were true as I would have been retired for 3 years by now and would be fishing my ass off. Unfortunately, I still have 7 more years to work until that blessed day arrives. Sorry Fred as my counting challenged friend Dana tells me I'm now in the "50 and F-U club". Dana old buddy - the first one is for you :hehe:
Thanks to all for the birthday wishes, I had a great day today. The weather co-operated and Sandi threw an awesome BBQ where a pile of great friends made me feel that not all of my 50 years have been wasted.
Russ you are right about being married to a good woman 'cause to top it off Sandi totally blew my mind with a 1932 4 1/4" Perfect in awesome condition - pictures to follow.
