I Peaked Later In Life

I have to admit that I must have “peaked” much later in life.  I hit 40 and just kept on going.  Somewhere in the mid-40s, I had a virus hit my heart and I ended up with a lot of heart muscle being killed.  But, I still kept going.

When I hit 50, I was still going strong.  Mid-50s, my heart thing caught up with me and I ended up hospitalized and had a pacemaker/defibrillator implanted.  But I still kept ticking.

When I hit 60, I was still going strong.  61, I started to feel the years.  62, I began to get a little slower.  63, yeah, the joints all ache.  I’ll be 64 at the end of the month and I’m beginning to feel like that old Buick.  🙂

But, hey . . . I’m still ticking.  Can’t complain about that!
