Getting the reminder from your doctor that it's time for you colonoscopy!

Yeah, this is true. But have to admit the "Milk of Amnesia" really does allow for a great nap. : )

Being able to hit driver without worrying about getting to fairway bunkers I used to fly.
Not being able to carry my clubs (still walk with a pull trolley but cmon).
Finishing 18 and not wanting to play another 9.
Lots of things make me feel old.

Yup. I used to walk 27 often, esp if I played the first 18 well. Now walking 18 makes me want to take a shower and stretch out on the couch with a couple glasses of wine.

It has to be the pee thing. Last week when I played it was extremely hot. I drank a lot to stay hydrated. When the urge came to pee I had one squirt followed by four dribbles. When I left the outhouse I had four dribbles down the front of my shorts. Luckily they dried fast.

The other thing is the trees. I played a course a few weeks back and on this one hole the tree is so big now that it is in the way of your drive. The young guy in our group says who sets up a hole with that big tree sitting there? I commented that tree never was a problem when they made this hole. I mentioned when I was younger you went over it. Now you go through it or try and fade your drive around it to hit the fairway.

Lol bet they used you for forest fires. I know the feeling now I have to kick in the extra drive and end up throwing out my back, all just to pee. Can't wait to get older.

Yeah, this is true. But have to admit the "Milk of Amnesia" really does allow for a great nap. : )

The magnesium citrate sure doesn't...lol
No kidding!  Who replaced the TP with sandpaper???

I was really enjoying the nap, but I didn't enjoy the news when I woke up.  The up side was that I have gotten a few even longer naps for surgery, and even during chemo.  The down side, well, cancer!
