Ode to Aging

Nearing the ripe old age of 33, I began thinking that as the years pass me by, and as I inch towards the big 4-0, there will be a time when I look back on things I used to do.

And eventually there will be a last time for things.

You know, like thinking about the last time I rode a bike.

Or the last time I roller skated.

How about the last time I roller bladed? Well if you know me, you know the last time I did this I ended up with Val in the ER.... LOL

Already many wives and Mom's my age have given up doing these fun things, which makes me sad. Am I getting older? Of course. Do I want to see the day when some part of my older getting body cannot handle fun activities?????

No way Jose.


I know there WILL be a day when I cannot or WILL NOT do those old familiar fun things anymore....

But that will not be today.

Perhaps tomorrow......., but definitely not today.

Tomorrow there may be hot pads, Tylenol and muscle cream.......... but today there will be fun.


  1. That's going to be me Saturday afternoon. We've been invited to a huge "Snow Party." It's the highlight of the winter around here, or so I've been told. I hope I make it home in one piece. I need the exercise that's for sure! We're surprising the kids. They won't know where we're going until we get there. Fun fun! =-)

  2. Way to go! Keep it up! I started riding a bicycle (again!) this summer at the ripe old age of 44, so you can still do it even when you get over 40!:o)) Of course I was sore for a couple of days, but my body adjusted and I rode that thing all summer long with my boys. You can do it!:o)
