Not me. I was miserable at 20. Things get better with every passing year.

db - Sell that apartment you don't need it and donate the money to a poor English lady who's struggling with the heat so she can build an indoor arena
PS - That would be me by the way!!!
We are the generation that shocked the world with its move for 'free love', daring pop groups that behaved badly, openly used bad language, opened the door to films & TV that were showing couples not only sharing the same bed but were 'up close and personal' too, on screen nudity.....................

The advert at the start of this is pretty relevant don't you think???!!!

Other than my knee being shot to heck and the other age related creaks and crunches I 100% agree!

We grow too soon old, and too late smart.

I should actually rephrase that-I would love to be 20 again IF I knew what I know now back then! How's that? While I am wishing for impossible dreams, I might as wish for world peace & other more important things.....

Yes, wouldn't it be nice to have our knowledge & the energy of youth to go with it? I used to work 40+ hours a week, had a second job, took classes, had my horses & kept a house going while being married & raising a stepson. WE had cats, dog, chickens & even a bit of a social life. I have to say-I sure did sleep good back then! LOL

I am loving my 50's. But, man I sure can relate to how much harder the ground gets, having just come off of my 17hh mount the other day. Oh well, I am still here, still kicking.

Not much to add right now, just that it's fun and I like this thread!
I paid her big bucks to post that! Everyone who has posted a picture looks pretty young & fresh to me, not in their 50's at all, see what a horsey lifestyle does for us?
Okay what is up with husbands? I told him last night when I got home from work, I have a lesson first thing in the morning, take my car, leave me the truck. Granted he was 1/2 asleep when I told him, but he ALWAYS wakes me up in the morning before he leaves for work, so I thought, eh no problem I can remind him again. This morning of all mornings, he let me sleep, sure.

I'm in for the "no politics" and would like to add "nor religion"

As far as wanting to be 20 again, no thank you. Life was way to complicated back then. But having what was my 20 year old body now?? Wouldn't that be a dream come true...

/sigh

I have to go in for a nerve conductivity test in my legs tomorrow. Things are starting to get numb.

Live well, laugh often, love deeply...An' it harm none.
