Thanks, Corey. I miss my parents every day. They were awfully good to me, rotten kid that I was.

I haven't been in an aid car for at least 25 years, and that was due to those damnable kidney stones. But in the last few years my wife had had several late night episodes with shortness of breath and chest pain. I have never hesitated to call 911, as that is why we pay those folks. I would not want to make the wrong decision and regret it for the rest of my life.

Re: Ever forget how old you are?

That video clip was great!

Dad made it to 88 and was getting ready to type up his resignation from the Board of Negotiations (he could never sit still in retirement so he got a new job). Mom also was as sharp as a tack when she passed at 94.

Do I ever forget my age? I'm 56 and I often forget to act my age. That's good, right?

I remember watching a Ren & Stimpy episode (how mature) where it was Ren's birthday. He was 10 years old and felt like a million bucks, that is until Stimpy told him it was 70 in dog years. Before you knew it they were casket shopping. Like most people shopping for caskets they were oversold on what to get; they ended up with a model that had it's own spa & sous chef.
I did say I don't act my age.

"The more you know,
the more you realize there is that you don't know." - Dad

Re: Ever forget how old you are?

Haven't got that bad yet but since I retired I find it hard to remember what day of the week it is because they're all Saturdays now.

HKalin, I am with you on having everyday bein' a Saturday, since I am retired at 55.

Sometimes I think I need to be doin' more with my days, but I am the house dad to 2 boy's (ages 14 and 9) instead of going to the office. We had 7 children, 5 boy's and 2 girl's.

Enjoy your Saturday's, Hank!

Getting under it isn't that bad it's getting my fat a_s back out from under it and getting back into the upright position that's the killer.

Yeah, Hank, when I climb out of the Chevelle and crawl back under it...Oh yeah, I remember real quick how old I really am.

It's like a new mario video game (if I didn't have a grandson, I'd have no idea)., yes, when it is time to get up, you make a look around.. you gage distances, using bifocals... (little error there, when was the last time you had your eyes checked?)
Got a plan? Great! Let's do it!
Slight roll, pulling at (choose wisely) this and.... it moves, roll some more, hit knee cap, catch shoulder, now roll, use arm, forearm, find socket and extension, plant right hand, now left hand
, palms on floor, raise right arm, grab nearest item you think that doesn't move...it does tho...pull body up and now on knees! Yay! At this point your mind is talking to you! Loudly! And it's SCOTTy from STAR TREK!
CAPTAIN all power is gone, wee got barely impulse power, what the flip are ewe doing? She can't handle much more! What you mean all ewe got?
The next part is balance and raising the bod ... nooo don't touch the car, the wall! Yeh it's a fine time to discuss maybe it wasn't such a bad idea to have steps mounted on the wall...up.up.up simba!!
YAY, reach into car, turn key, car starts at engagement, Vrooom... tick tick... still got an exhaust leak... damnit!

"Turns down hearing aid "
What noise?
