    It sucks getting old

    Several months ago, I managed to misplaced a file folder of Doc's including 5 vehicle titles, birth certs from 4 states, SS cards, and marriage lic. We tore the damn house apart at the time w/ no luck. Finally was getting ready to start the replacement process with the max dread factor in mind. Thought I's take one last look around and low and behold, there it is in the second most likely file storage area.

    With age comes wisdom.
    I gave up bothering to remember things years ago.
    Remembering is what computers are for.
    Use your brain to think, not remember trivia.

    Yep...I gave up remembering, but not by choice.
    Getting old really sucks, I am about to part with my bikes,
    not really comfortable riding any more, one more year I hope.

    That's a tough decision. Any young riders in the family?

    There may be a young rider coming up. He is 13 years old and he told he would be able to ride my Turbo
    in 3 years. So he may be interested. I sold the Turbo.
    My childhood is clear as can be, yesterday, not so sure.

    I hate it when I look for something that I know I have, but can not find it anywhere. Example: sanding disc for my belt sander / disc sander.

    After looking the entire shop over, I go to the hardware and purchase a pack of disc. After I install one, I go to put the extra ones up and there lay two packages. UGH!

    I'm a young(ER) man. I stopped loaning my tools out because of this same reason. I couldn't remember where I put them. Made me nervous of loaning a pricey or specialty tool out. Went the other way and just told my friends to bring over their project and enough beer to cover my time. It's worked out well.

    You might want to consider going to 3-wheels (trike). It's nothing to be ashamed of. I have two of them plus a sidecar outfit.

    I am not a trike fan but I am looking at Ural hacks.
    A side car may be a good switch for me and fun too.
