    Re: getting old

    best part about people getting old is they are that much closer to not being able to vote anymore.

    Re: getting old

    Getting old does suck, 2 of my meds are close to looking alike. They are approx. same size & white, one is oval shape and the other is oblong. Have to pay attention not to grab the same bottle for a double dose which I've caught myself doing before. I wear polarized prescription sunglasses with no line bio's when out on the water. Looking at the fishfinder with these are a challenge if not looking straight at it. My regular glasses are transition no line bio's. I can read without them providing words are large enough.

    Good thing is that if you forget to take off your magnifiers the fish always look bigger

    Re: getting old

    yes, getting old is rough, i used to be able to thread a needle
    by the light of the moon, now the moon looks like a little fuzzy and I have to
    wear my glasses to see the hole in the needle. if I had even an idea that I would live this
    long, I MAY not have done a lot of things I did, but I was having so much fun I couldn't
    help myself.


    be safe

    Fly fishing with size 22 and 24 midges is now near impossible for me if I forget my readers. I always have a cheap Walmart pair in my vest. Yeah, getting old sucks.

    Yep, gave up in about 2003 and bought some readers. Worst part of it is, I couldn’t remember to bring them along. Now I have at least a dozen pairs and they’re everywhere.

    Getting old sucks, but it beats the alternative.
