    It's hard for me to remember that far back. I think you have about 10 more years before the real problems begin, though.

    Turning 50

    Don't panic!! Turning 50 is NOT fatal! I did it nearly 10 years ago and I am still relatively healthy. :D
    Have a wonderful time, eat cake and ice cream and relax! :cool:

    Closer to fifty than forty. Various body parts hurt. You don't heal from stupid minor injuries. My eyesight is shot and that's going to be a real problem for my guitar building (but not my playing!) if it keeps up like this. Exercise doesn't make you look better any more, just keeps you from looking worse. Your sex drive goes down the drain. You start getting really pissed at a society that won't deal with real and obvious problems, and also realize that there's not a damn thing you can do about that.

    On the other hand, you've probably learned enough to not keep making the stupid mistakes you made in your teens, twenties, thirties and forties. There are, however, a brand new crop of stupid mistakes that await your discovery.

    Yeah, I'm wiser but I was happier when I was dumber. Getting old sucks, no two ways about it.

    As you have probably figured out, the world is still spinning..
    50 however does usher in a closer relationship with your doctor, there are tests that a good MD will want to do, and he is going to start harping on you to "improve your lifestyle"..
    Remember that Keef is a anomaly!
    Have the tests done, and if necessary "improve", after all according to Chris Traeger "Scientists believe the first human being to live to 150 is now alive..I believe I'm that man" but who's to say it's not you..
