List your signs that show you are getting older. Below is part of my ever growing list.

Joints are a little sore.
Cholesterol up.
Take a few pills every day other than vitamins.
Takes a little longer for sex.
Naps in the middle of the day.
Watching your diet.
Going to more funerals of friends.
Memory loss.
On a diet and watch what you eat.
Forgetting names or is that part of memory loss?
Thinking of the good old days that may not have been so good, just old.

More funerals of friends,
less funerals of relatives, as most of older ones are already gone.

Age plus Ankylosing Spondylitis with kyphosis and no teeth do make it tough. But then it could be worse, I could be a democrat, right?

"Going from one health issue to another is a real bad sign."

.....

Hmmmmm, let's see: 1999 diverticulitis surgery, 2ft colon resection, 2001 incisional hernia surgery, 2003 small bowel resection, 2005 hernia surgery, 2008 colon cecum cancer surgery/resection, 2009 five arterial bypass surgery, 2010, 2011, 2013 prostrate cancer radiation therapy...let me think What else?

Oh yeah, 2000 laparoscopic knee surgery and currently loosing right hip...Did I mention I turn 70 the end of May?

But...life is good and has been great with no regrets and yes the heart is in great shape and the cancers are in emission with no indicators present.
