Sometimes I even suprise myself!

Ok, busy, BUSY weekend.
With the forecast calling for us to get the edge of the hurricane, naturally my wife freaked out, and had me bring in everything that wasn't bolted down inside. The BBQ pit, bicycles, all the plumerias, etc.
And of course, we didn't get anything, just a little wind, not even rain. Just my luck, so of course that meant I had to haul it all back outside Saturday. :(
So no rest for the wicked.
I am doing pretty good exercise wise. I don't have time to go to the pool as often as I'd like, but I am still going. Usually just Saturday and Sunday, but it's fun.
I put in 900 yards on Saturday, a personal best! Yeah, yeah, my kids being swimmers, could do 900 yards in about 8 minutes, but it took me a full hour. So what, at least I'm doing it. And I can tell I'm SLOWLY getting better. :yea:
Saturday night, the excitement continued. My 17 year old had agreed to DJ a party for the daughter of a friend of my wife. Problem is, he waited until the last second to tell anyone he had to work that night.
So rather than leave her friend in a lurch, I was voluntold to fill in. As DJ, for a 16 year old's b-day party. Yes, Me.
I must say, they really made me feel old. I had never heard half of the supposed "dance" music they wanted, but that's the majic of iTunes and a wireless internet connection.
And don't get me started on the "dancing". Call me old, but some of these kids were very close to "dancing" their way to pregneancy. Thank god my kids were at home.
But in the end, I got the greatest feeling of acomplishment. As my wife and I packed out the gear, the wispers of "THAT was the DJ? No WAY! You are $H!TTING ME!" brought a smile to my face.
Maybe from now on they'll think twice before passing judgement on the "old" person.
I guess I've got the best of both worlds.
I'm old enough to enjoy the shrieks of "Grandpa!" from the grandkids, but still young enough to show the teens how to spin a record. Record....no, flat and plastic, no not a cd....RECORD! Look it up!....stupid kids. :p
