He is that old,  it's just that you are older!  Now that you've quit smoking (he says REALLY hoping) you will get younger and younger!  Pretty soon, Critterman will be older than Bobbwhy Flay.
May the Schwartz be wit you

That you will john, BUT I did quit smoking and also slowed down and now take shorter strokes. I was told if I want to retire I have to stop buying parts for the cars. Pushing for next year .

AWESOME Bob! So happy you quit smoking my friend. Buying no more parts for the car? Retiring is overrated...   :lol:

Shorter strokes?  :idk:

His carpal tunnel was getting worse, I just don't know how it would be possible for him to make the strokes any shorter.  :idk:
