Feeling Old

The last few days, I've felt old. My back is a mess and I'm not sure what's causing it. All I know is I have to roll off the bed and hold on for dear life until my legs pony up the strength for me to stand up. The pain is exquisite.
I rode to Sumiton this evening to pick up a few things for Easter lunch tomorrow. Tomorrow is also my lovely spouse's birthday so I wanted to pick her up a card. When we arrived at the store, it was all I could do to get out of the car. I wiggled out holding tight to the "oh-crap" bar inside the car and the top of the vehicle. It was not a pretty sight.
We were going out of town for Jilda's birthday and we had to cancel because I was not sure if I could ride four hours without being hospitalized. I know she is disappointed as am I.
Walking seems to help so after lunch today we took the dogs out for a stroll. Astro promptly jumped a deer and the last I heard him he was almost to the next county.
I guess we'll lay low tonight. I hope a new episode of John Adams is on tonight. We've watched two and they are excellent. I read the book by David McCullough last year and it blew me away. This guys is an awesome writer. I've also read 1976 which shed a whole new light on what our forefathers went through for me to be able to sit here on my deck this evening and write this entry. I am humbled to think of the sacrifices they made and so many folks either don't realize it or they simply take it for granted.
Happy Easter.
