Getting old is starting to suck.

What's the matter, bud?  You've always been such an exemplar of living with cheery gusto and grace.  We'll listen if you want to talk.

Oh, it's just things like keeping up with physical work on the farm, being careful about extending myself at any sort of workout, bruising and  bleeding easily, sleep and nap issues.  It's all what I have expected...  Just whining, really.  Life is pretty good.  I have lots of very supportive (younger) friends and colleagues and a couple of slightly older excellent role models. 

I'm fine, just need the occasional kick up the bum; she's good at that.

Ah, okay, everyone gets to whine now and again.  As long as the ratio of life-is-pretty-good to whining stays favorable.

any thoughts of a lifestyle change? Rolleston is lovely, and probably still close enough to the wilderness part of Canterbury for safe cycling and such.
