Slipping in for a late night victory, however fleeting it may be.

Not bad for an old man, eh?

Are we talking about winning here or something else?

Gyppo and I are just lucky to be still alive. If we last at anything at all, it's a good day.

I was speculating on how big the two silver birch saplings in my back garden will grow in the next thirty years or so.  They're a bit too close to the fence, but I didn't plant them.

"We'll have to cut one of the paving slabs to encourage it to spread inwards rather than out, because if it breaks the fence the damned Housing Association will want to get rid of it.  But I'd like to see if grow wider on the garden side, even if I have to trim the outside of it to keep them at bay."

"I rather hope that in thirty years time you'll be sensible enough to let someone else clamber up there and do it for you."  My daughter clearly has her doubts though ;-)

Maybe a job for Alma by then.

As I read this, I was thinking, "I don't do anything age inappropriate or dangerous or outrageous."

All this while trying to cool down after a CrossFit workout. Not that I'm the only old fart in the world doing this, but I keep being the oldest fart in my gym doing this. Duh.

But in twenty years, I sure as hell hope I have double unders in my repertoire.

We have a tree in the back yard that sort of sat idle for about 20 years then we got the good rains for about three years in a row. Now its 20' plus tall. We call it the flea tree as that's where the dogs like to lie for the summer. Its a lovely tree, a pale yellow flower most of the year but it loves the sewer lines.

First you age
Then you stoop,
Getting Old
Is pigeon poop.


That's what I know about pigeons. My mother taught me that poem.
