    I made a movie reference of Rain Man about savant syndrome, my students have no clue what I'm talking about.

    I suffer from servant syndrome just about every time my wife and I are together. "Take out the garbage. Unload the dish washer. Pick up the doggie poo. What are you? Useless? Do I have to tell you everything, every time?"

    Gotta love it. I am glad to be back. :)

    Just got back 2 days ago from a 14 day road trip from L.A. to AR. Took the car, ducking and covering. I must be old.
    Some nice mountain roads in AZ and western NM. Saw some riders and wished I was riding.
    In TX came to a Texas size huge downpour, black skies, thunder. Damn glad to be in the car, although would rather not be there at all.
    Coming back found my car covered in ice one AM. In TX. Texas messes with you. Glad it was not my bike encased in ice.
    Saw six big rig trucks crashed that day along I40 interstate. One caused a 12 mile backup. Geez.

    Two other mornings the temp was in the teens.
    Can't imagine why that Gold Wing was still sitting there when I was leaving. He had a Montana plate. It was 17F degrees of "warm". :Noidea:

    3600+ miles and 4 of those days were in the same town in AR. No way I could do it in that time on a bike, even with good weather.
    Five days of back to back to back 300 - 400+ a day.
    Hell, I am not driving it again either. Too much "adventure". Next time I fly, like usual. Getting old sucks. :Rain:

    Thanks Duccman, I am just doing the older thing. Arthritis in back and knees, planter whatever in the heels and vision issues so I may have to take it easy for awhile. But nothing that we all don't go threw.
    The weather is unusually warm right now in the upper 50's so just trying to do short rides when I can on a sunday or Monday. Take care all.

    .......you take serious interest in functional medicine when you realize the government/insurance company disease care system doesn't work for you, ultimately due to greed and selfish political power motives.

    You know you're getting old when your belt buckle creeps well above your belly button.

    You know you're getting when you fill out a form on your smart phone and get to the part where they ask you for your date of birth, and when you get to the part where you add the year, you have to spin that bitch like you are on The Wheel of Fortune.

    And that can lead to the ancient Hawaiian disease.
    Lackanookie.
    A secondary cause of which is lackaloot.

    You and me both. I have been plagued with back and knee pain to the point that I bought a Guzzi Quota to have a dual sport that is more friendly to my hips and knees. I still love the VFR but it takes some stretching to get the cramps out of my legs when we go ride. It has been in the 50s here too. Ya gotta love that global climate change.

    I had stopped in at the local gas stop to get a drink and a hot dog and struck up a conversation with the fresh faced clerk. She felt it necessary to inform me that she was younger than she looked being only 19. I teased her saying that we had something in common, that nether one of us looked our age. She tilted her head to one side, looked at me critically and said " your 45." "Bless you" I said "bless you!"

    You know you are getting old when sex becomes less about spontaneity and more about the limitations of painful hips, bum knees, sore backs and the ever present danger of a Charley horse forcing you to your feet and causing you to jump around the room in agony.

    IDK. Some of that sounds more like the excitement of having an orgasm at our age.
