All I want for Christmas ?

Okay as I have just posted elsewhere ...

We have no idea when young and sporty and athletic, just how dangerous and painful it shall be after 40+ years of life, and full membership of the Knackered Knees Club gave me experiences I wish I had not qualified for ... so now its no horses; no skiing ; no golf ; no tennis ; no squash and just walking, careful of the uneven ground ...

and waiting for Ducati to bring out a Quad bike (so I retain my dignity with a Ducati and not a Mobility Scooter

Dear Santa, please get Ducati to bring out the Quad Bike, so I can fit my bicycle front wicker basket and panniers to it

Re: All I want for Christmas ?

All I realistically want for Christmas is hopefully enough money to pay my photography club subscription.

But, if it was possible, I would gladly trade all my future days for just one perfect day, restored to full health and fitness, walking almost effortlessly over An Teallach. The air would be still, the sky clear and blue, with a sharp frost crackling beneath my boots as I set off at dawn in anticipation of the glorious day ahead. I would not even have a camera with me, enjoying instead the reality of every step, celebrating the here and now rather than tomorrow's memories as I become at one with the World in preparation for leaving it.
