Well maybe a little old.
A tiny bit...
Took a domestic airline flight. What should have been a six hour journey took twelve. I was kind and cordial to everyone and didn't groan once (well, not audibly at least), and with few exceptions I noticed neither did most other travelers in my same circumstance. People should get a medal every time they fly.
Cheaper than buying a new one.
Ain't that the truth, Brother!
I'm going for an interview for a position that's typically looked at as a young mans job. My field of choice and schooling is environmental geology; unfortunately it can often feel like a youth convention. Meaning if your over forty people look at you thinking "what's this old man doing here". I'll be turning 51 in body in a few days, and feel it would be better for me to keep active in this line of work. I really enjoy the work, being outside, and meeting people from all over the world.
Please pray for me, that I'd be on the path that God desires for me and that I bring glory to Him.
Hope you can get that job, experience should come first.
At 51 you are still young, I know I'll be 77 this month.

I am learning to use an engraver (i.e. a small handheld power tool).
The interview was an hour and a quarter long, include data interpretation and changed from an environmental scientist position to a environmental site coordinator.
Now I'm dealing with "did I say too much or too little" ..... I just have to remember it's God that gives and not man.
They said they would make a decision by early to mid week next week.
hope you get the job sir..
Prayers still being sent!
I spent a couple of hours splitting seasoned oak, for use in future barbecues, with an axe and sledge hammer. This was from 2:30-4:45 pm. I Had cut up part of a large tree, several months ago, and let it dry. It was time, I was tired of seeing the large pile, in the driveway. The only problem I had was 99 degrees, with over 110 index. I had to take several breaks, and recruited my 13 yr old girl, to stack it all. Not a complaint out of her, other than the dog kept bugging her, the entire time. I will say, this was the closest I have ever come, to heat exhaustion. i estimated approx 3/4 cords. A lot for BBQing.
Brother, you are the MAN!
Tired and dehydrated, is more like it.
I drop my guts when I had a slash this morning mate
Smoked two large briskets. Started 5pm Saturday, took it off the smoker at 5am. Then transferred them to the oven, wrapped well, in foil, from 5am to 5pm. Tender, moist, and very very flavorful. Now, I'm stuffed, and everyone else is complaining they ate too much. Overall, a good day.
Switched away from Verizon after almost 20 years.
Were you wearing flannel?? While chopping wood?? While fixing your pickup truck?? Switching cell phone service, while doing these things, would make it manly. Just by itself, well, I will let others decide the extent of the manliness.
In English, so us "Aussie Challenged" can understand.
