Mom still skis at age 75 though it's not the 100+ days per year she was bagging a decade ago. I know a bunch of people at Kmart who ski every day who are in their 70's. There's a guy named Dee with a 50 year old girlfriend who must be over 80 now.

With a couple of knee replacements, I see no reason why I won't be skiing at age 80.

you must be a pretty good golfer then.

Hahaha, ahh, I love this place.



Anyway, my grandfather said something similar, except it was about splitting wood with an 8 lb maul, and not playing golf.

All of this shouldn't be a problem since I'm going to live forever... so I'll stop skiing if there's no snow anymore. And I'll water ski.

Quote of the day!

And you are right GSS, for people like you who are so in love with golf carts.

Try REAL golf, i.e. walking and carrying your own clubs (not using a cart, not drinking beer while playing) and hoofing it up and down the hills in the sun or rain. Its not exactly a marathon, but its certainly exercise.

I sure hope I'm skiing in my 70s and 80s, but I'll take every day that I'm given and appreciate it for now!

Skied earlier this year with a 78 yr old man I met on the chairlift at Sunapee. Great conversations and that guy didn't hold back for a second. I swear he even got air on a few runs! He remains an inspiration. Hope to catch up with him again this season.

Now compare Marc to GSS .. It is apparent that Marc never has sex, the sheep and goat thing is just a cover, The clarity, the understanding, the intelligence just shines through with his post. Sorry to blow your cover Marc...:wink:

Sex makes you "stupid" has been my experience ... case and point would be GSS .. I think he must have sex 4 or 5 times a day with the things he comes up with .. now is that sex with himself or someone else is up for debate.. Sex makes you blind to many things and I think that is by design somehow..



I've had sex 5 times in a day before..with a girl..and with Rosy Palms..either way,..my D$ck doesn't know the difference..and I'm not blind..lol..

I should have said " when men only sailed on warships" ... I can't help it if sailors look cute in their dress blues ... :lol:
I tried but I was in a hurry and that was the better YouTube I could find to express what was on my mind. ;)

BTW, was thinking again about the golfing comments on here. Puts a whole new spin on the title of this thread. :lol:

Age won't be an issue...they'll have to pry the skis out of my cold dead hands.
