THEN:
Aging creeps up on us. It seems like just yesterday that we were in high school and then college or our first jobs. Suddenly we turned around and realized that our twenty-something mind is trapped in a fifty-something body.


Our friends are dealing with elderly and ailing parents. We've had to fight arthritis, heart problems and cancer. We suddenly start to feel mortal after all. We begin to realize that life really is too short and start to do the things we've always wanted to do. So how could this happen? We haven't even been middle-aged yet! That's at least ten years away...isn't it? Okay, so we're only as old as we feel and some days that can be pretty old.

We've lost communication with old friends. Our hobbies change as our bodies change....active games of football, basketball and softball are replaced with riding around a golf course in an electric cart or watching the aforementioned games on television. We've gone from radio to B&W TV to color TV to Betamaxx recorders to VHS tapes to DVDs and DVRs. We used to ring up the operator to make a phone call, now we talk to our steering wheel or into our wireless headset to make them on our mobile phones and use conference calling services to speak with everyone at the same time .

We've seen the invention of Velcro, microwaves, sticky notes, glues that peel off walls, satellites used for phones, television and mapping, frost-free refrigerators, space blankets....and lots more.

NOW:
Since age fifty I have learned to ride my own motorcycle, ridden solo through 42 states over seven months, gotten my first tattoo (followed by a few more), and made the decision to head onto the road and live full-time in an RV.

I continue to savor each day as it comes, learning life's lessons once again, but on a road alone. I continue to find and make many wonderful new friends and always try to keep in contact with old ones. I try to help others as they help me...
