Oh no…another sign

Yep..had another one of those signs of getting just a bit older each year.  My years are marked, in some respects, by doing play by play sports.  I am just getting used to seeing kids that were once on the basketball court now with their own children at the varsity games.  But, did my first game last night and midway through the first half I realized that even my voice was letting me know….”hey old man…stop talking so loud and so fast!”  Right after the game…went out and got not just one…but three bags of throat lozenges.  First my hair…then my legs….maybe my voice….humm…what could be next??!!
