They dont share very well. Its not as good as watching football on TV but I think its better than watching soccer.
So enjoy watching hummingbirds chase each other around the feeder and across the yard!

Much better than watching golf. Zzzzzzz.

I went to the gym with a 63 year old coworker. I guess that counts.

I wanted to get a few things at a nearby plant nursery this morning and was multi-tasking, trying to quickly get out of the house.

I parked my car and went to grab my phone/wallet case and looked down to see I had brought the TV remote instead of my phone! What? How? WTF! I have plenty of excuses, but in the end, that was a really ďold personĒ thing to do.

I had to register to comment on this post.

OMG....thatís hysterical. I literally laughed for 15 minutes...with tears. Thank you. I needed that laugh.

I’m much more careful about climbing up and down stairs and ladders. I’m conscious that I cannot routinely lift things that I have in the past done easily.

I tend to not shave as often as I did when I was younger and so I look more like a scruffy prospector. On the bright side, my wife says she actually likes the "scruffy LOOK

I’m not as creative in what I wear every day. It usually consists of blue jeans, a button down shirt and a vest.

When people ask us over, I don’t look at my calendar, I simply say “how about Saturday”.

And, yes everybody under 25 looks about 14.

I try very hard not to act like an older person.

Good to know —This is something I will need to explore, we really struggle with TV sound. We even bought a fancy sound bar and it doesn’t help that much.
