Definitely not insulting. The whole drooling comment is meant as self deprecating. So definitely kidding by all of us. Except for those kids on my lawn. They most DEFINITELLY have to get off my lawn.

At 76 I am still trying to find the time to sort through all the magic effect I have collected or made.
I might even perform again despite arthritis and mobility problems.

But each year I have less time. Why? Because I can't hire anybody reliable to do work for me.
Either they don't show up on time or won't follow instructions - all the time wanting far too much money for doing little and knowing less.
So, I have to do things myself. Just finished a 200sqft deck - holes, concrete, posts, joists, deck boards - everything. Railing too.
And I had to load the lumber myself at the Home Depot.

No time for magic at my age.

I retired from teaching. I'm 65. I had an interest as a teen. I'm full-on studying magic now. Hobby. Passion. Books. Books. Books. So much to learn. Tested some tricks on family and kids with good results. Never too old! NEVER too old!

On last night's Penn & Teller's FOOL US (Friday, April 23, 2021) 70 year old magician Chris Capehart performed. Not too old to fool Penn & Teller! Though, for the specific performance, I wasn't blown away. That DOES happen on the show since performers perform for such a limited time and in that specific environment which isn't the best for all types of magic. I think sometimes they don't choose their best routine for TV.

Note also that Penn is 66 years old and Teller is 73 years old. Magicians age well.

It's a fairly well established factoid that magic keeps you young. It also keeps you spry when you're old
