    Attitude - YEAH! I've always been told I've got a lot of that.

    Now we have the time to travel whenever we want instead of summer break. I take my Kamaka with me wherever we go. I can't do that with trumpet. I realized I just can't be bothered with trumpet any more. Two very nice professional horns are just sitting there. Each instrument is worth around 2 grand. I'm considering selling them and putting the money towards a new tenor.

    The one exception is when one is required to subject themselves to medical procedures reserved for those who have obtained a certain age.
    It is not the procedure itself, nor the fasting, but the preparation - consumption of the materials.
    Other than that, each day I awake being glad that I awoke.

    And I am especially glad I’m awoke 30 minutes ago. Three years until I once again expose my backside to the medical professionals.

    My last year for the 60 to 69 group. I can not say that to me age is just a number. I hired a contactor to break out my sidewalk and pour a new one. Just thirty feet of concrete. I would have done it myself ten years ago, but physically it is too much to tackle. No sour grapes though, I'm still healthy and in pretty good shape for a old man. My sixties have been the best years of my life so far, and playing the ukulele is part of that.

    I don't want to live in a world that is linear.

    I just want everyone to understand that I am not a ukulele expert, even though it may look at times like I'm pretending to be.

    It's the same as some of the camera forums I go to - most of the folk are retired and comfortable baby boomers.

    My daughter tells me that only old people do internet forums anymore. Maybe there is something to that.

    I am in the majority age group here as well. You know what...........20 years ago when my sons were 10 and 13 years old I could not afford the instrument I own now nor would I have had the free time to play as much as I do. I am 61 going on 26, lucky to have my health and be in good shape physically and mentally. Well the mentally part might be up for discussion if you talk to my wife
