    I guess I'm getting old. Went out in the yard before bed last night to do my business and was enjoying it when I felt this
    warm feeling going up my foot and ankle... After it registered what had just happened, I just laughed and told "him", ole boy
    we've had lots of good times but I believe I've out lived you...….

    I work in an agency that has different levels. In the level I work in and the team I am on, I am one of the oldest. Another one is retiring in a couple months and another in a year or so. The people that are getting hired are definitely much younger than me. I think about retirement but for me that is not going to happen anytime soon.

    You have to climb over a fence, and once up think to yourself, 'how and I going to get down?'.

    Then realising that in an active armed contact, you would be toast in a minute. 'Whats Tranter doin sitting on that fence?' 'Tryin to get over it'.

    Its not what difficulties life throws at us, but how we face them that defines us....

    Sounds like you need to get an enclosed trailer dedicated to your shooting gear. My wife has been after me to get one to store/transport all the steel targets I have. I have been considering it.

    You know you are old when gas is your constant companion. At 71, I had to give up beans.
    My little dog likes to get under the cover when my wife goes to bed, but it doesn't take her long to come out when I get in the bed. She would rather be cold than to stay under the cover.
