    Hello Tony;

    That's a bit of a bummer. Typing is OK, handwriting is a chore, but
    that always has been. I suspect the cause is undiagnosed dyspraxia(AKA DCD in some parts of the world). My coordination isn't naturally good, it's just been heavily worked on over many years - not formal therapy, just participating in sport, gymnasics was especially beneficial (and I actually got into that by accident when I was 15! :D ).

    As long as you don't trip over your own two feet, it's all good right? :)

    I can still speak in the present tense, and as I get to know more and tweak training, I can say I'm like a good fortified wine - I'm getting better with age. :)

    I peaked at 50 I'd say. And I'm also ticked off at those who call your senior years "golden"! My eyesite is still 20/20... it's RUST not GOLDEN!! You can fool some of the people some of the time... <G>

    Haha I'm a sprinter, so taking the jet is more my style! :D Speaking
    of which, we've just levelled out at cruising altitude. :) Of course, you'll get this NASA style, after the fact, because I have to upload
    after I land. :)

    I haven't flown since prior to 9/11. No real interest either. Folks tell me horror stories about airports here now. No need for me to find out first hand.

    ... If at first you don't succeed - so much for skydiving.

    Ha! Like the suicide bomber who practiced first <G>

    ... I laughed, I cried, it became a part of me.

    Yeah I'm still doing fine at 53. Saturday will be the big test, with a big headwind, which should favour me slightly, I have decent power under load. :)

    I still like flying. Airports here aren't too bad.

    Indeed. ;)
