Ah Middle age

My Father was 85 on Sunday and he is as fit as he was 20 years ago and looks 10 years younger than he is. I mentioned this to my son who proclaimed 'Does that mean you're going to live as long' I hope so I replied, 'Shit' he said 'I was hoping to get you into a home when you are 60' you'd better start saving now then son.
I got to thinking that even if my Dad makes 90, at 47 I am passed middle age so surely now is the time to start behaving badly and do something rash, go out an buy a Harley Davidson, have an affair with a 22 year old Swedish Masseuse, have highlights put in my hair and wear leather trousers, get a tattoo or pierce my navel.
I mentioning this to Bin, she said that I should forget the Swedish masseuse as I probably couldn't even ride the Harley without a leg up!
And there I was thinking life begins at 50 ( although it's usually 49 year olds who try to convince one of this)
