Over the years I have noticed how much better my legs have felt each winter here in the Southwest's dryer climate. The arthritic pain or whatever it is I have has always lessened. But not so this year. The aches, pains, soreness, and stiffness have increased and I guess I have to finally give in and admit it probably has to do with my aging body. Yes I know there are people my age running hundred mile marathons but there are a whole lot of people on the other side of that thought as well. It is what it is however and it's all a perfectly normal part of the aging process for each and every one of us. As younger people we all knew these aging days would eventually be upon us but I guess it was always something I never paid too much attention to until it finally creeped up, tapped me on the shoulder one day and said, "I'm here now and I'm here to stay so it's time for you to pay attention to me and accept my reality."

I had meant to include this link with Sunday's post to show exactly where we were 4 years ago to the day. Title of my blog that February 10th, 2015 was A Problem With Our Fridge and as it turns out we were in the same place then we are now.

Q: How many blind people does it take to change a light bulb?
A: It depends whether the switch is on or off.
How many FOX news producers does it take to screw in a light bulb?
A: Three, one to drill a hole in the light bulb so it blows up when he turns it on, one to film it, and one to insist on the truth of the report despite the manipulation.
A man and his wife were sitting in the living room discussing a "Living Will". "Just so you know," said the man, "I never want to live in a vegetative state, dependent on some machine and fluids from a bottle. If that ever happens, just pull the plug." His wife got up, unplugged the TV and threw out all the beer.
