"American psychologists at the University of Oregon have just revealed that between the ages of 45 and 54 men are at their most competitive . . . It all makes a horrible kind of sense. The older, balder, fatter, stupider and more irrelevant we become, the more we feel we have to prove ourselves."
Antiquated and all fired up.
Actually, I honestly feel as good physically as I ever have - except for my knees. (Too much basketball and running from law enforcement in my teen years) I've noticed extreme pain in my knees as my relic hunting activities have picked up. But, I'm working on that with weight loss and some muscle strengthening exercises. I think I've still got a few good years left. ;o)
