Sometimes I get to feelin’ bad about bein’ old and then I think about the alternative. Actually bein a geezer is not too shabby. I’m enjoyin’ most of it in spite of the aches and pains. I reckon I would have taken better care of myself when I was younger if I had known I was going to live this long.
Back in November when I had my last heart attack the doctor told my family that I was in bad shape and might have 3 days, 3 weeks, or as much as 3 months to live. I have already doubled the three months and I actually feel better now than I did even before the last attack. For a while I kind of believed him but I feel optimistic enough that I have have started a few long range projects and I intend to finish them.
