Forty Niner

So I turned 49 years old today. It's just a number, right?

I certainly don't feel any older. Well, in an "all-at-once" kind of way. I mean, in the aggregate sense of changes building up over time, well, yes, I feel older. The beard I see in the mirror is no longer red. The lines around the eyes are there all the time, not just when I smile. I've caught myself grunting upon occasion when I get up off the sofa.

And just the IDEA of actually running anywhere makes me break out in a sweat.

But other than that, I'm still a young buck.

What changes have you noticed as the years have slipped behind?
