i am glad you made it!!!!!!!!! i have to say that like you, i have noticed that i can't do things at 49 that were easy at 47. we should all be careful constantly regardless of weather. we should certainly operate smarter when the mercury is hiding in the bottom of the bulb.
that said, i am glad you were out doing your thing as it was locking up. we all survive many close calls each and every day.(i drove to walmart this morning) the only close call we don't survive is the last one. God has more for you to do.........so keep on punchin' my friend!!!!!!!!!!
ps wading sticks are for smart people and old men. thankfully you and i are neither!
