I am not surprised by his age, heck 62 is the new middle

62 is middle aged only if you plan on living to about 124.

The ages of man (and woman), self-described:

8-10 Preteen
10-14 Teen
15-17 Young adult
18-22 Adult
23-30 Early 20's
31-39 Late 20's
40-55 Early 30's
... and so forth.


An online "life expectancy calculator" gives me 83.4 years for being
an average weight, non-smoking, non-driving, moderate drinker with
decent genes, diet and excercise habits.

Dividing that by seven for Shakespeare, at 56, I'm just entering the
fifth age.

"And then the justice,
In fair round belly with good capon lin'd,
With eyes severe and beard of formal cut,
Full of wise saws and modern instances;
And so he plays his part."
(sounds like a recumbent rider)

I've already outlived Jesus, Alexander and Napoleon
.. . .but they weren't cyclists.

What a great way to start my day. I just read that I am really not 50,
I am in my early 30's. Now that is a surprise. Thanks.
Maggie...Early 30's (with a son who is 29.)
