    First day ever peaking into this thread. Probably because my 62 year old body and mind still think it's 25.

    Y'all really get up like early in the morning, on purpose?

    Morning for me is between 10 and 11. Except days like today when I got up before daylight...7:00 to walk behind and ride my grass cutting machines.

    All the multitudes of years I worked were mostly second or third shift, because I've always thought getting up before 10 was a leading cause of brain damage.

    Aint worked in 12 years and still stay up till 3 to 5AM.

    Up early everyday even on the weekend. Get into bed between 10:30 to 11:30 and up by 6 or 6:30o_O. Once I wake up, I can't lay in bed. Gotta get up. As for my body it feels like it's 20 until the next day then it feels it's age. My mind...Well lost it 50 years ago when I said I Do and still looking for it:rofl:. All in all, life is good. Welcome to the over 60 crew (and a few younguns that drop in to check up on us).

    HiYa Rob, thanks for asking, neck was always okay. Went to a clinic down here and got some muscle relaxers to help the back and was finally able to get some sleep. Left calf and ankle still an issue but will go see the doc when I get home. I forsee many Xrays and MRI's in my future. Trying my very best to enjoy the vacation. Resting on the beach is tough especially when it's a short walk to the bar.:D


    :hattip::wave:


    :woot::woot::yay:For Grandmoms gift being the hit. Glad for you that it made their day as well as yours. Always the best with the kiddos. Thanks for the safe travels. As long as there are no hurricanes, we'll be good. Take care.

    Good morning all. Met with adjustor from the Good Hands people. Seems you are not supposed to make a claim after a hurricane. The allowable repair amounts seem to be in line with 1965 price guides.

    What licensed contractor in the entire country would remove a beadboard porch ceiling for $100?

    Compared to the Bahamas we have nothing to complain about. Sent a donation to Water Missions Intl. It's a start for a devastated country.

    Robert: Most people do not realize how important water really is. Providing a water well for an impoverished area will touch the lives of 15,000 people. Your donation to a wonderful organization will help thousands of people.

    Talk about feeling it the next day: we've been painting the garage. High ceilings, weird angles, tons of junk that needs to be painted around. I ache just thinking about it! Primer/sealer will be wrapped up this morning hopefully, but it's all ceiling and I'm not looking forward to it one bit. Why do I remember painting as being fun and satisfying? Must be that selective memory thing.

    Oh and getting up early: I was up at 4:30 this morning. Once the synapses start firing I have no chance of falling back to sleep. The cats think they're going to get fed, and then they whup on each other when they realize I'm not going to feed them yet, and then go back up to lay around in the bedroom with my wife in the hopes of getting food when she gets up (it works). I do give them some treats at least. Then I sit down and do my social media thing. :pccoffee: :wave:

    Oh and happy Friday the 13th ***and*** full moon!
