My son's automatic pickup takes more than twice the gas to get to Greenville.

Four weeks. Triple that, and I'll be playing golf again.
Ok- maybe I'll wait until it is warm again

It is always about us (me).
Complaining helps, and as I am a happy hermit, -- will share on this thread.
Unlike Mike, am not much of an athlete. I have done some jogging over the years.
Doing that has caused many problems, so have been to many types of doctors.
I have never needed surgery for my crap, but my Bride has 2 new knees from Blue Ridge Orthopaedics, and can leave me in the dust when we walk.
I blew out an Achilles moving my boat 2 months ago and am just now able to get around again with less pain. For a month just sat on the sofa.

I won the geezer division of the Anderson Turkey Trot in 2017, and as a reward took 2018 off to gain a couple hundred pounds. My goal for 2019 is to return to that race at the age of 73 and challenge the other geezers. That seems unlikely as I am fat at 200lbs and crippled, but it is a goal.
