Age is a wonderful and dangerous thing as we continue in the learning process of life. We are not so different than our younger generations in the fact that age places restrictions on what we can do physically even though mentally we feel we are fully capable. An example may be as simple as riding a bike, some designs are easier than others and some with balance problems have had to resort to 3 wheel models but more importantly they continue to ride. The greatest challenges come from grandchildren where we want to demonstrate the style we used when sidewalk surfing years ago, that behind the back frisbee catch (remember some of you were high), maybe the infamous belly splash in the pool. Yep, we can still do all that in our head but our body is in constant disagreement and very vengeful. Be content to brag about your exploits of the past but smart enough to prevent the physical therapy that might be in your future.
