When I tho't of people who were my age (61) as I was in 20's and 30's, I'm sure not there!! In fact as others have said, I'm probably as active if not more with as much strength and endurance (well almost) as then. I know I'm more flexible than then but I work harder at all prior comments than I did then. Not such a bad life. Agree Abbe!!

I do feel that more things are making sense and I'm finally understanding some life lessons. I can move more than I thought 57-year-olds were moving in my younger years. emoticon
