When old age birthday cards start getting funny. Then they start getting funnier.
When you've finally had it with bending over to do chores and you head to the Goodwill (on senior's day for the discount) to buy a pair of all elastic waistband jeans. And you swear that you'll never wear them to town ...
When you start noticing that your moves are getting slower and more deliberate (like old people).
When a long handle shoe horn is a godsend. and you prefer to buy slipon shoes.
When sit happens, and it does make you feel better. And you have a favorite chair and the family clears landing for you.
When old is however old you are plus 10.
The truth is what you can get other people to believe.
Old is when you go get something and can't remember what and it is not funny any more.
Old is when you get down on hands and knees to get something from under the desk and then wonder how you will lift up again, what to grab that won't topple over, because your knees don't work any more.
Old is when you are looking for your next horse and the shorter and pokier the better.
Old is when you are competing with little kids trying to find that next horse.
You have some great experiences still ahead
Like you Bluey, I find myself looking at the 12h driving pony and wondering if he could be broke to ride.
However, he is a Hackney, so "poky" is not & will never be an option in his World.
Still...tumbling off that height is increasingly attractive compared to Mr 17h+.
Especially when Mr Big gave me his very best impression of a rodeo bronc on the longe the other day....
I felt like I was holding on to a runaway Macy's Thanksgiving Day balloon
