Forgot to say:
re oldies having MF problems: distance vision tends to get better as people age, so MF shouldn't be such an issue, unless you are short-sighted like me
EOSFUN - happy birthday! I am marrying a half-Dutch person on 9 Jan next year (she is not 22 alas!).
a.RodriguezPix - 9 dog years makes 56 in my book (9 x 7)
with that much enthusiasm I can quit fretting about being 37 and know that 47,57,67, and if God permits 77 will be just as if I were reborn! My father passed away at 56, my grandfather around the same, and a couple of my dad's brothers as well, so my mind was set to know 50's was going to be my "old" age! My wife, two children, and pet's however, are going to make me live above and beyond those that preceded me! My 16 year old daughter fought cancer, and is still doing so, but as soon as chemo is done, and the Doc gives her the okay, I will again be reborn, and defy my semi predetermined fate!
