    Youthful injuries return with a vengeance.

    You realize that caution is the only thing you care to exercise.

    My first bike was in '70, used Honda 305 Scrambler. My father bought me a used Briggs & Stratton engine when I was in grade school, made buggies to run around back yard.

    The B&S engines were coveted by all us kids back then. Mini bikes, and go karts. On trash days a tossed out lawn mower did not last long.

    It's scary when you start making the same noises
    as your coffee maker.

    New flashlight, 4 batteries, can't read which way they go in on the flashlight itself. Can't see it on the package because of low light. Needed another flashlight.

    I'll rethink posting next time. If you have to explain the joke....
