    The worst thing I have found about getting old, is your friends start dying off!
    What about y'all? What do you dislike or dread about getting older.

    Growin old

    No dreads. But I wish I could shoot a moose, a bear and an elk. And I would like to thank the guy who took off with my second wife. But I am afraid he would try to sell her back. :D

    I have more blessing than I do problems.
    However, deteriorating vision and the loss of stamina has changed my life style.
    It could be the hard miles more than the years???

    Well I'm not real old but I feel like it with the medical problems I have. I miss doing what I use to be able to do and don't even want to THINK about what the next 20-30 years might bring. With Norreen passing on it makes me really realize I might not see tomorrow so I take it a day at a time and just deal with life the best way I can. You can't stop the future so why try or worry about it.

    Jesus said; Don't worry about tomorrow, tomorrow will take care of itself. All we are to do is live today as if it were our last.

    Tomorrow NEVER comes, its always today. And there will never be another Today like this one. Make it count.

    Lingr, Swo1; y'all are very wise. Always be ready to "shuffle off this mortal coil", and the rest of life is a bonus! Whatever is going on in your life, or whatever ails you, you don't have to look far to find someone in worse shape than you!

    As the framed art above me says,

    "Dream as if you will live forever; Live as if you only have today."

    I'm a middle-aged man who is very content being so. The heart's good, the cholesterol is right where it should be, and I've dodged the diabetes arrow so far. Life is good and I thank the Lord everyday for that. My only complaint is the doggone blood pressure medicines they've got me on that sap my energy and make me feel old.
