    I'm so old, I use the phrase "Back in the night"... because the first day didn't happen yet.

      THIS! Oh man, as much as I didn't want to...I have.
      Oddly enough, I've become OK with most of it now, too.
      Better understanding of what he went through later in life for sure, since I'm now
      literally walking in his footsteps medically (and my property was bought next door to his, too).

        Ed you say that about dad makes me recall I was at an auction with my dad for my wife’s grandparents. My wife’s grandmother spotted me walking behind my dad and noticed we walked the same exact way. As a young stubborn man I thought no way. I went to dads house one day and seen a pair of his boots by the back door, one laying on its side, I noticed his were worn on the outside edge like mine.. 20 years fast forward I’m now the mechanic for the switching locomotives he ran for 36 years .. I love pop and it’s sure strange how genetics work! That’s also where my really hard head comes from.

            I'm so old that my afternoon nap requires a early evening nap.

              That reminds me, it is about nap time.

                I'm so old that the only way I can remember what the heck i'm supposed to be doing is by looking at what ever tools i'm holding. Even that doesn't always work!

                        Reached the age where sleeping with the wrong pillow feels like I fell out of a 12 th story window.​

                                that would save so much time, and let us get a full nights sleep.
