Most people 65 years or so lament that they can't run as fast or as long as they used to. Reading fine print requires glasses. Some punch lines are missed. The smooth skin is no more.

However, there are trade-offs. I am the proud owner of a handmade snowman napkin holder, a vase of beautiful hand folded paper lilies, a warm scarf perfectly knit by a ten-year-old granddaughter, plus senior discounts. The trick is to enjoy the whole ride.
