Age is a state of mind.
The alternative to getting older is..well you know.
Life is never what we expect. I have lived long enough to have checked off all the "status" boxes on a government form: single, married, separated, divorced, widowed ...whew
The last 20 years have been a roller coaster let me tell you. Now, I feel as if I am falling apart. My knee went out on me 4 times on Friday. The first time, after work, I thought I had just zigged when I outta zagged. Then my knee gave way twice in succession leaving the restaurant a couple of hours later. Then again Saturday morning and this is my "good" knee. Took my breath away let me tell you. Carl got me a crutch and I am cautiously moving around. I shall call the Dr.'s office on Monday for an appointment. Might as well get both knees X-rayed while I am at it.
