    I began martial arts at 51, & weighed almost 300 pounds. Now, at 57, I feel great, have lost the weight, & am working on my 3rd degree black belt. Hang in their Ralph, & do something exciting! You are never too old!

    I know Ralph feels. Chronologically, I’m 55. Mentally I’m 25, and I’m trapped in an 85 year old body.

    If Ralph would lose a few pounds, he’d feel younger and he’d live longer.

    On my 50th birthday I was standing on top of Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. Went back and did it a 2nd time a couple of years later.

    50 is the New 20.

    As I always say, getting older beats the heck out of the alternative.

    53 tomorrow, about 18 pounds lighter than I was at 52. I think of my age as something I achieved myself, not a crime that was done to me. I also refer to the Distinguished side of 50 (in between the Respectable side of 40 and the Grand side of 60).

    My other categories are the Dangerous side of 10, Legal side of 20, Improved side of 30 (which started my thinking on these – Mom thought our tour guide in Alaska was in her 20s, but I could see around her eyes that she was over 30), Incorrigible side of 70, Venerable side of 80, Fragile side of 90, and Incredible side of 100.

    My status of being almost nose-to-nose with seventy, I have stopped looking for fancy names for the decade and better ways of dealing with Doctors that want to push unneeded pills at me.
    N. B.: When you get a new prescription, head to the nearest copy of PDR, (The Physicians Desk Reference,) and see what you’re getting into, and if there are interactions with drugs you are already taking. Call the Doctor to tell him which prescriptions you are not filling and why.
    And for me the dangerous side of ten was both sides. When I was eight I wore long leg pants with spurts of type metal alloy imbedded into the fabric when I was learning to operate a Linotype, Ludlow, Elrod and various Monotype casters. Shortly after ten I really learned about girls.

    MayKitten: The PDR takes ads and has been known to leave out side effects of its sponsors’ products; the lower cost Pill Book is more reliable.
    I never learned a Linotype, but I can set from a California case with no more light than from a candle.
