Here is the bright side

I have COPD and Asthma and I found a great use for my Nebulizer machine and my old syringes cap from my Blood sugar syringes . I drill a small hole in the syringe protected cap and connect to my Nebulizer and it makes super air nozzle for blow gun parts off . Number 90 drill bit works perfect for me , they are cheap so you drill a bunch at different sizes .

Seeing those syringes reminded me of the olden days. My sister was head of a hospital lab outside of Chicago for many years. I use to ask her to bring me home a couple of syringes every spring. Remember, I'm talking about the late 50's and early 60's.

We would collect night crawlers on a rainy night, make up the "bedding" and put them into our old refrig in the garage. When we went fishing, we'd take a syringe and shoot some air in the crawler to keep him off the bottom of the lake or river. That poor critter never had a chance to hide.

Me, either.

TGR, that you would come up with something so creative doesn't surprise me in the least. Gotta hand it to you. Neat idea.

Outstanding! Not happy you have these issues, but a positive spin is always cool

Life has a way of doing that. I retired at age 54 and have already had 11 years of fun after retirement. Sure beats retiring at 65. Donna worked till she was 62 and might not have as many retired years that I got. Plus you got to do retired things at a much younger age and could enjoy it more. I think we are looking at this in the same light. Its not how old you live it how many retired years you get to live.

I too retired early. I was 53. Been retired now for 12 years. I was active in most sports in HS, College, and afterwards. 4-5 broken toes, many broken figures, even fractured a disk in my spine and didn't know it until 30?? years later. Had the spine fixed, a new hip, both shoulder's rotor cuff have been worked on, and someday might have to do a knee.

Yes, I'm also paying for my youth. There's not doubt in my mind though, that the last 12 years have been the best in my life.

An added note. I can't imagine how my body would be if I had played pro football for a few years. The punishment they take is unimaginable. That's why so many are crippled by the time they are 50.

Smoking Cigs since 1955 , wild women , racing motorcycles for over 30 yrs and more wild women worn my body out .
I got tired of working and save a lot of money up to do the early retirement until I got my SS check in 12 years .

I smoked a pack a week for decades but gave it up many many years ago. My biggest vice was mountaineering and my joints paid the price. Jamming fingers into cracks and pulling your entire weight up takes its toll on them.

I smoked 2 to 3 packs a day . I really miss smoking and I really enjoyed it . Now if I see someone smoking I get down wind of them and SUCK IN the second hand smoke
