Well I'm 59 and can still work circles around any of the 20-30 year old techs in our shop. Granted they don't want to work hard and a 40 hour check is OK with them. The younger guys have very little upper body strength. I can still crank out 60-70 flat rate hours in a week and that can only happen if you hustle on each job.
I like to work hard but when I get home I crash into my recliner and take an hour nap and wake up for dinner watch TV and in bed by 11 o'clock.

I'm 63 going on 20. I still feel pretty good most of the time, but I've noticed a drop in energy level. I need me a young girlfriend - like in her early 40's!

I'll be 65 in 2 weeks. I retired @ 62, something I would advise everyone to do if they can. my wife retired the year before I did (she is 2 years older then I am). We rather enjoy spending time together, (married 45 years last May) and we enjoy cruising in our cars. There is a lot of the USA to see, and I intend to drive through the lower 48, we have most of the mid section and most of the south eastern section covered already, but the north east and the north west we have yet to make it to.
Health is still pretty good, but my younger years of body abuse is catching up with me. In HS as a Junior, I was 6' 1" tall and wrestled in the 155lbs weight class (yea, I was a skinny bean pole). I've added about 2 1/4lbs a year since then (a lot of it was just out of HS). I've lost about 10 over the last year, but still need to loose some more, I can tell the extra weight is not good. I do a physical every year because I need prescription medicine, but always the tests come back with everything in the middle of the recommendation numbers.
I can only sleep 5-6 hours at a time (since my mid 20s), but lately, that hour nap mid afternoon is pretty nice. Though retired, I still manage to do 5-6 hours of fairly physical work a day (except most weekends) but then I'm done for the day. At this point, life is very good. Gene

I am not rich...but I get off my ass everyday to make sure I am not broke!

Can we get the Mexican cartels to help us with our supply chain issues? They don't seem to have any trouble getting stuff from one place to another.

Most people who first meet me guess I'm in my 30's, so I'm not complaining.
Now that is funny. Saw a blog where some gal went to Florida to hook up with some guy called the Doc. When she got there this 30 some year old guy looked like a Radial tire from 1975 with 100,000 miles on it.

The day I wrote that, I had gone to a chiropractor. My first time there, nothing major. After formalities, he started in with a spiel of things I need to do while I'm in my 30's so I can still be good by the time I retire...... coulda heard a pin drop when I politely stopped him and told him I was 54............ laugh2 blush

Grateful I don't look like a radial tire from '75......... shock laugh2

In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is.

Tad over 40 and slowing down, I just don't understand that one. I'm 60 and can still out work people half my age. Still go to the gym 5-6 days a week. Same as I did when I was working 72 hrs work weeks(which was only a yr ago). You have to invest in yourself to enjoy getting older.

50 in a few weeks. Feel great. In great shape. Eat well, lots of exercise...cardio, strength, endurance, boxing. Other than a few age-related aches and pains (chronic tendonitis in my shoulder, arthritis in my left knee and left big toe), no issues at all. I hang with the most of the 20-somethings and 30-somethings in my workout classes. Not all of them, but a good number of them.

Thank you all for your feedback!! It makes me feel younger grin I am 48 but I do not feel it when I look in the mirror. I also thank Doc for asking the question. True I am also one that gave him grief on other posts. Yes I deserved the Sgt Schultz responses. I do know something and that is share knowledge with kids. The stories I have and experienced with my kids are priceless. We as 'geezers' should always be open to questions. If we don't share the 'glory' dies. Don't cost nothin. Open up and see cars are cars.

the biggest thing with getting older is the health issues that go with it.
i need both hips and both knees replaced, and i'm trying to figure the best time to get this done. and to complicate things, i have MS.
i look at it this way. no matter how bad i got it, someone out there has it worse than me.
and then there is DoC. ........... biggrin

Well, that's what I get for patting myself on the back. Rolled my ankle near the end of my strength and conditioning class last night. Xrays negative, but I'm in a brace, my ankle and foot are black and blue, and I can't work out for at least 3-4 days because of the swelling. Doc said it should be 100% in 3-4 weeks.
