Crap, the only older than me so far is Leary - I'll hit 52 this summer. And it's not "old" or "aged", it's "experienced". As in "I'm too experienced for this $hit"!

I am surprised that some seem surprised. When/if Boots weighs in, the ML will have some company. One of the reasons I enjoy the threads about the antiques we find so much is to see how my memory compares to those who were more "experienced" at the time I remember seeing some of those jewels. Being a 14-18 year old pup, playing with an installation that was updated last before I was born was rough experience, but invaluable as time has gone on.

You still have knees that work?

Mine are bad, but they don't seem to have gotten any worse the last 5 years or so. I having the winters off has helped them last longer. But years of football, baseball, softball, skiing, snowboarding hasn't helped either. Neither has being a parttime trim carpenter, installing base.
