Growing older, but not up...

Has this old guy has still got it?

I'm growing older but not up
My metabolic rate is pleasantly stuck
Let those winds of time blow over my head
I'd rather die while I'm living than live while I'm dead
-Jimmy Buffett

Ok, at 51, I guess I'm not that old but I play it up whenever I can.

When I was younger, I used to spend day upon day at the lake.  Boating, water skiing, tubing were all part of the regular routine.  As life has gone on I have had few chances to spend time doing those things.  With that being the case I was quite excited to be heading to Lake Allatoona with my sons Boy Scout troop.  Well, I was excited and maybe just a little apprehensive.  I know that in my head I could still ride a tube or ski like I did when I was 20, but how it would work out now?

Part 1: Tubing- I gave the boat driver specific instructions.  "I wanna go fast, when you put me in the whip I want to go so fast that I just have a toe on the water and couple inches of tube, I just want to hear that zzzzzzz of the tube skimming across the lake".  He looked at me with a your crazy look but said OK!

Part 2:  Skiing - Ok, I was maybe a little slow getting up, but once I got going it was a pretty good run.....

The end result?  Well, it's Monday morning and I have no serious injuries and just some pretty good muscle aches. :-)

Oh yeah,  He's still got!
