Age 80, a new normal

Recommended Posts

I’m there, 81 in September so best to say some thankyous.

(1) Names very difficult but Plymouthy Adams, Tim Estrada, Casper 50, Bob Riding quickly emerge. 

(2) Quick, unexpected passing of friends and relatives. Lost two, one with a six month illness, the other a 60 day illness. 

(3) personal note: my health seems to be good, only two pills per day, eye sight is fine, no apparent heart or lung problems. But do have a severe hearing loss, I.e., cannot hear without my hearing aid, and now struggling with leg strength

(4) forum gratitude :  when I started 12 years ago did not understand intake vs exhaust manifold, , the three essentials for an engine to run, the difference between an engine and a motor, negative/ positive ground, body vs chassis.  This forum taught me mechanical skills, personal tolerance, better respect for alternate views, religion, politics, and profanity are toxic, the means and value of internet friendships. Few things have been as enjoyable, rewarding, mental expansion as what I have enjoyed this past decade.

 

So then, my unreserved, heartfelt gratitude to each and all. I trust this post is premature, but better that than never.

Been a long time since I checked this forum.

Nice what you said and yes time goes fast.

Hopefully our vehicles will continue on once we are gone.
