Those were the days before those sissy helmets and face guards. I was playing for the Seneca Falls Red Wings at that time. Shortly after that I was drafted, not by an NHL team but by the Army. I’ll trade “Those were the days” for “Golden Years” any time.
    I was a lady’s man then.....no t that night but............
    I'am sure you were a "ladys man" back in the the day The surgery must have been a plus !

    Just a little humor......I' m sure you had more hair then than now...... certainly in my case.

    While the back of my head reflects more light everyday, the hair I need on the back my head grows out of my ears and nose.

    As someone said before " The golden years are more about getting rusty"......I could use a lot of WD 40.

    Jackie,
    Glad to hear your gonna be ok.
    I asked an old Portugeuse dairy farmer buddy of mine how he made it to 85.
    "Got rid of every ladder I owned when I turned 65"
    Made 65 last year, thinking its good advice!
    Get well,
    Greg

    Being a Portagee myself the first thing to do is to get rid of the kicking cows. They can really kick ones behind in an instant and it can hurt like the Dickens. I once got kicked so hard by a fresh Cow having never been milked and being milked by hand to feed the calves. That if it was the kick or the wall it through me against that hurt the most?

    Couple of months back I was trying to figure out why a pancake compressor I was given wouldn't run. Pulled everything apart, AC cord checked out okay, contactors did also as did the pressure regulator switch. Put the motor in my vise to see if it would run, as it was an aluminum framed motor I didn't crank down too hard on the vise. Pushed the hot and neutral leads into an extension cord and the torque of the motor caused it to jump out of the vise and chase me around the shop. It caught up with me and the stamped aluminum cooling fan proceeded grind a hole in my left palm.

    Face versus shower door

    Hey Jackie,
    I guess the arm might be better than your handsome face!
    About 3 years ago while visiting my daughter, I somehow managed to double up on my blood pressure meds at night and the next morning passed out in the bath room and tried to move a shower door with my face. Luckily, I landed on the door track providing a nasty cut all way accross my upper lip that was stitched up by a plastic surgeon leaving no evidence of the collision.
    Problem was that being as how I passed out I was not allowed to drive for 90 days. That was a the real pain!
    Be CAREFUL!

    Wilbur, There is a better term, instead of Golden Years they are the Metallic years, silver in your hair,gold in your teeth and lead in your a**. Fits much better IMHO. It still beats the alternative !

    I'm lucky I don't have any hip issues. I do have titanium in my neck from three operations and one in my lower back, but I can't really complain. I can walk a reasonable distance with little or no pain. Right now life is pretty good.
