Getting old

Some people try to turn back their odometers.
Not me!
I want people to know why I look this way.
I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.

Got the valve job last year and am hitting on all cylinders with good compression.

Now if the suspension was in better shape

I have always liked the saying Phil Harris coined back in the 50's.

"If I had known I was going to live this long, I would have taken better care of myself".

To you youngsters, Phil Harris was Comedian/Actor/TV Star.

At 77, going to be 78 this year, I hope, I can honestly say that I have been blessed with good health.

Never operated on for anything, few screws missing but what to "Hey", look at Congress and the Senate.

I think one thing we can all agree on is our SSR is keeping us young and active like no other vehicle possibly could.

My suspension is shot too. I hace it stretched a couple of years ago and it moved pretty good so I am going to ask for another frame stretch to see if it works again.

Aging

I have this problem of thinking that I am much younger than I actually am. Yesterday while cross country skiing, I snapped a bone in my right ankle. Way to start the New Year! Guess I need to drive the "R" more and exercise less as exercise has contributed to most of my injuries in life.
