old guy goes back to dojo, writes about it.

On my blog. http://www.averyjenkins.com.

Feel free to comment on it, even if for some obscure and unfathomable reason, you disagree.

Speaking from the 60+ year range, it is always nice to see youngsters come back to the mat

Hey Bruce, if you would remember to wear your glasses you can see them much better. Snicker ....

Well you know Avery the nice thing about aikido is you don't have to remember anybody's name as long as you smile and bow a lot!

Oh yeah, I forgot (another thing that seems to happen with increasing frequency). I thought about that lasik but I'm afeared of laser beams.

At least with poor memory every day is indeed a new day!

Re: old guy goes back to dojo, writes about it.

Well I certainly agree with your last sentence "At least with poor memory every day is indeed a new day"

Actually the lasik has been one of the best things I evey did for myself. Going on 4 years now, after wearing glasses since I was 5. For me it worked out great!!!!
