The only consequence is it will take a little longer. :clap: I had a my six month checkup and the doctor asked me what I was doing lately so I told him. He sat there with his mouth open and said that he wished any of his patients had half the energy I had. I told him I bet you say that to all your patients!

Any how keep layen em Jack. Train the younger ones on how to do it right. :P

Slow and steady wins the race. When it's done no one will care how long it took.
Is it interior or exterior?

Yes Sir Jack, I know right where you're coming from. Been hand mixing and laying down mortar with no helper for the last two days.
I'm only 4 years shy of 72 and I feel your pain.

I look at what I got done in two 12 hour days and can still remember being able to get more than that in 4 or 5 hours after work.
Then again. ................ That was 40 years ago :D

Hell no, I am in great shape and 15 years behind ya and I am not digging a 4 ft. hole with anything but hydraulics and hand mixing cement is way behind me....
I played basketball tonight with a 73 year old guy that has been injured and has not played in months...he hit 90% of his shots from 3 point range with a metal splint on his little finger from ripping the end of it off in the net playing volleyball....best pickleball player in Tenn at his age group.....people like this do exist, but they are rare indeed. Keep it up Jack, the alternative is....... :o You to FF....
