When a person gets older, their body starts to fall apart. My wife and I stay active with assorted outdoors activities, but even with exercise, time takes its toll. Something always seems to hurt or break, from even such minor activities as falling off a mountain. Last week, my wife developed a pain in her back. I was secretly glad that I was not the only one with infirmities, but concerned my main fishing and outdoor partner would be out of commission.
