    That would be a little much, even for me.

    An interesting challenge, though.

    It always bothers me when people say you're only as old as you feel. That means some days I'm 28, and some days I'm 82.

    Not quite where you are yet, KG, but getting there. I pulled a calf muscle (felt and heard a pop...only a good sound when you open a jar). I can walk and now without crutches. When I get up, my arches hurt, I limp...it's not pretty.

    My Mom is 72 and has a bad hip and leg. Yesterday we laughing because we were thinking we could be in one of those magazine articles...who is the mother and who is the daughter? She has very few wrinkles and if I didn't color my hair...we would be close. Good for her...BAD for me!!! We have been walking alike!!

    The ole saying...growing old is not for sissies is true:( But it beats the alternative!

    I bet if you felt 50 twice, you wouldn't get slapped...or at least the slap wouldn't be as harsh!

    when people ask my age, i clarify that they mean chronological, as my emotional/mental/physical ages vary...even among each other in one day!!

    When I turned (more like hit with a brick wall) 50, it seemed like all heck broke loose. Right knee started giving me trouble, hip joined in for the party, gray hair shot out of my head at the speed of light (I am not joking.. It's incredible how FAST it is coming out), then left knee decided it didn't want to be left out. Now a year and a half into this decade, I am scheduled for left knee replacement the week after conference and am seriously considering putting my retirements funds into hair dye stock. I would be having both knees replaced together, but honestly just can't be off my feet for that long.

    Luckily I still have my youthful good looks and positive attitude. Good thing, this aging stuff ain't for whimps!!

    It's hell to get old, but it sure beats the alternative!
