I did something really stupid about a month ago. I threw a couch, now every time I turn my head to the left, my right arm goes numb. After a few weeks it wasn't getting better, so I decided to play disc golf and maybe try to stretch it out.

LOL
Couches and Frisbee have ruined your night life...that's just the beginning my friend.

I wake up feeling like a Zombie every morning. The aches and pains come and go...I require 2-3 cups of coffee just to get the cob webs cleared. That goes for Saturday And Sunday mornings as well. I sleep in those days until at least 7:00am. So I don't get it.

At what age did the term "quickie" change for you? LOL

I was 26 when I bought my ti (holy crap) and now ... I'm not

I'm using P90X to feel better about getting older (along with things like the Horribly Hilly Hundred and Triple Bypass century+ bike rides).

Default Quickies haven't changed...HAH!

My other quickie system was demolished @ 61 with my first cancer treatments! I am a little p.o.'d that noboby warned me that the radiation was gonna' nutter me to the extent it did but I guess the alternative is I'm still hanging on! Besides, I've already sown my oats, plenty...you learn to live with changes in your life. I figured that after 50, you're "out of warranty" and best be prepared for the changes coming! I'm still a car nut, my BMWCCA # is 1661 and I still love older BMW's. Lots of things are good in life and I have a great family! Gotta' go-putting a bunch of Schnitzer stuff on the 328 this week. And Grandpa, no problem-it takes more than that to rattle me-gotta' respsect my elders! Keep those photos coming on that new toy of yours!

Yes, I would say still being around to enjoy life and family time, etc is more important. I don't think you even have to wait until 50 to be out of warranty, nothing is guaranteed! Glad you're still here and in our little ti club
