Herb: Younger Women, Faster Horses …

Herb Huseland: One of, if not the principle difficulty in getting old, is that I had absolutely no warning. It snuck up on me when I was not looking. Why, I ask is there not a training period on getting old. There I wuz skidding along in my middle age. I wuz (at least I thought I wuz) Cruisin' along in my middle age, chasing fast women. Alas, I slowed down, falling out of the race. Now I'm faced with an old body and a mind that hasn't shown any signs of growing up. Chasing fast women seems to be out of the question and slow women, especially those using walkers, object strenuously to being accosted in a suggestive manner. Woe Is Me!

Question: Is there a manual re: how to deal with old age?
