    Old geezer Dad would love to challenge you to a bike race.

    Calvin doesn’t realize it yet, but old joints just don’t move that fast… and even sadder, my mind seems to require a little more TLC to reach operative speed these days.

    But I sure do believe that he’ll be going like a maniac until he isn’t able to.

    Typical kid. Thinks he knows it all, and his parents are clueless.

    You may need to stock up on Tylenol before that happens, Calvin.

    You retire, you move fast, a pandemic hits, then you go into lock down.

    When you retire, you have less to do (that requires you to do them nonetheless), but you tend to slow down because the optional activities are OPTIONAL. They can wait until tomorrow, or next week, next month, next year. :)

    At some point you stop building and switch to maintenance. Then you get rid of it if your energy holds out.

    He’s driving the cart like a maniac so I guess he’s a geezer already.

    For myself and other semi-old people that I’ve observed, we may have cut back on the physical activity, but we’re going like maniacs trying to learn all the things we never made time for when we were younger. Calvin has an inquisitive mind and an active imagination. I’d bet that he’ll be that kind of old[er] man.

    Each destination holds similar. The journey is ever changing. Takes some time and experience to know there is much to be had along the way and to want to enjoy the sights en route.

    It’s a good thing it’s a flying wagon. Those tiny wheels would never work in that terrain.

    Regret or relief at having or not having a brat like you really slows down older adult brains.

    I’m going as fast as bad knees, bad hips, loss of ability to balance, and dimming eyesight will allow. I pretend that I’m stopping to smell the roses, but I’m actually just catching my breath—my sense of smell isn’t working all that well either.

    Now that I am at the other end of the arc I would indeed be going faster than ever, if I could just remember what it is that I was going to do. Anyone know where I left the car keys? (Joking!)

    “Slow down and enjoy the journey” would be one advise. That and “Get off my lawn”.

    Dad is a geezer? No grandparents – or do they refuse to visit?

    You say that now, Calvin, but wait until things start hurting. Knees, hips, back, plantar fascia, etc. Then you’ll just be glad to be able to get up and do enough moving around so that, in the words of a physical therapist, “The motion is the lotion”.

    Being an adult is exhausting…that’s why so many of them want to go to sleep early.

    I’m a geezer big time and don’t have enough energy to go big time, but I sometimes act like Calvin. It’s not like I have an employer to enrage… :)
