Of course you're getting old, you old fart bastard.

Just don't stop trying to keep up.

That's when you really get old.

no doubt...

we were tasked with having to desert train all the visiting units...and we'd have to be in that hot desert for weeks at a time...

spending 3 out of every 4 weeks in the Mojave Desert in 125 degree heat was no joke man...

i don't miss it...

When you get older, your body doesn't feel the need for water, get hydrated before kickin' ass.

... or maybe it's those 3 sit-ups you have done in the past 12 years! Less sitting on a$$ and posting about sitting on a$$, more throat punches and ninja kicks.

A 34" jean at 215? 6'0"? Where's all that weight, in your head?



I'm a 34, but 185, 6'2".

You might be wearing those jeans "Western" style, or something.

Yea, I used to do a 32 at about the same weight back in Jr. High or so.

Not that that was that long ago or anything.

Tall teenage boys do tend to look a bit like lanky beanpoles. Our son will probably go at least 200 once he "fills in".
