I am not really complaining about having a job... the company that I work for was acquired earlier this year. The integration is just happening and I have been hammer down ever since.  Seems there are not enough hours in the day to stop and smell the roses.

Anyone else hitting a wall?

I recommend retirement for everyone.
Don't force it, get a bigger hammer.

Having reached (and perhaps passed) "Old Fartdom" I've learned that it takes 3 things to make any project come to fruition:  Money, time, and energy.  Break any side of that triangle and you'll get nowhere, quickly.  As you get more experienced (older) you'll find that the third item is the hardest to find.  I sure coulda' used the first two a lot earlier though!!

Another month, i'll turn 81, and life gets better every year, only trouble is trying to keep up with it, back in Jan, I was talking smart, about straighting out a tractor chain, said let me do it, 5 minutes on my knees.....stood up and my dammed knee blew up the misus. hurt like billy be Darned. Getting slowly better, haven't  gave into the meat cutters yet, just hope riding will go well this year. Sweet Thang has been langushing for over a year, she's going to get a new triple spark ignition this year. going to run some tests, for comparisons, with the old and then with the new triple spark system...."Long past ol fart"....Ken :laugh:
