Yes, because in a blink of an eye 52 is in the rearview and you are just amazed at yourself for thinking you had aches and pains at that age.
I guess but ....I'm hurtin today ! Backs killing me . I had spine surgery when I was 41 . Had three herniated discs , one wrapped around the sciatica paralizing my left leg , except for the pain . Its hurtin today ... Oh well ...Can't whine all day . Back to work
