- Smack dab in the heart of Texas
Age is honestly a state of mind. My granddad and his son-in-law, my dad, both shod horses in their 70's and 80's. Daddy was still surreptitiously getting on horses up to the day he died (my mom watched him take a bronc to the ground after he'd had two heart attacks and wasn't having it). But old basketball/riding injuries sure can make you miserable...I guess that some of you may be surprised but I am 71 be 72 June 2020. I am a morning boy get up early if I sleep later than 6 a.m. then I am sick.. had to be at work by 4:30 a.m. when I was younger. Now that I am retired I still get up early today up at 3 a.m. getting ready to go deer hunting. Deer season started November 23 d, ends January 1st. On what I call a normal week; Monday through Friday up by 4 have coffee breakfast, do my bible reading, get dressed, help get my wife off to work then I leave to go hunting. Walking or fishing. Don’t hunt when raining cold weather does’t stop me from hunting or fishing.
Get home from at time various and have supper on the table when she gets home from work.
During Spring - Summer months after she gets off to work I go walking at least 4-5 miles. Maybe go fly fishing, working in yard cutting grass etc. Life to short have fun!
