I'm also about to turn 70. Here are some thoughts:
1. We live in a much younger world. Sometimes the young ones can be intolerant
2. We are often not respected for our wisdom and knowledge.
3. Our bodies don't function as well and our skin is saggy
But here is the silver lining
1. We are old enough to remember movies on the Classic Movie channel and love seeing them
2. We are pros at dancing to Rock and Roll. Hell we invented it!
3. We qualify for many discounts through AARP.
4. We are sages, very wise people. Just ask, and we'll be happy to inform our young counterparts.
64 and still looking forward to new adventures as long as I can.
Been in southwest Florida for a few days to warm up a bit and caught my first Oscars on a popper bug (no Peacock bass - yet).
The alligators in these ponds get awfully curious with the fish at the end of my line. Glad we don’t have them in Puget Sound.
New fly fishing exploits keep me feeling younger than I am.
I ran my last big race last May. No more for me. I run only for health. Running is the only thing that I’ve ever been better than average at doing. But if I had a choice of what I am good at I would much rather be able to fly fish like you @Freestone . I don’t even love running.
