I've joined thi9s group also. I can still do most things I did before, but I do them at a much slower pace so I don't run out of gas. Since I retired in 2010, I've had major abdominal surgery in 2011 and survived lung cancer in 2013. Slowing down is not all that bad, now I get to see and enjoy the great outdoors more and fish slower. Bluegills on a 2/3 wt. are a blast. Slow down and smell the great outdoors! Take care, John.
