Wife gets up at 4am and goes to bed at 9pm. Been married almost 46 years, we each have our own schedule. I think hers is a little more typical for an older person. She's always been like that though.

You know you're old when.....you get off the couch last night and can barely walk. You realize you're ongoing knee problems may have taken a turn for the worst. There is no rhyme or reason, but rationalize you can't walk the dog and ask the wife to take him out. You hobble to bed and hope by the morning its all vanished.
It isn't....you contemplate jumping off the bridge on the way to work but put your shoes on and the pain has 99% gone away and you realize you will live to see another day

Jeez - What are you going to do when you're my age?

Glad you feel better.

Years of BMX racing has ruined my knees. Instead of going to the doctor to see if I should get a replacement I b!tch about it and live in discomfort then look for sympathy online.

...if you remember this add from the advertising Hall of Shame:

"A gauzy 1972 commercial for Geritol shows a handsome, middle-aged man looking into the camera as his wife, perfectly coifed and smiling, leans her head on his shoulder. She remains silent as he describes how, thanks to Geritol, she has the energy to take care of their baby all day, go to a school meeting and make a delicious dinner.

“And look at her,” he drawls. “She looks better than any of her friends.”

He then looks back at the camera and says, “My wife, I think I’ll keep her.”"

The world of "Mad Men"!

"When does the bar open at this company?"
A: Before noon. Which is extra funny because most advertising people didn't get to work before 10:30a or later.
