My Mind is Clear but My Body is Weak

My Dog, Miko and Me at the West Terrace of our Retirement Home in Boac, Marinduque last Month
Yesterday, after 40 minutes of working in my yard, trimming bushes, raking leaves and a little weeding, my back started to ache, I had a hard time standing up. It ached so much that I have to take a pain killer. This tells me I should do only gardening by mouth( that is let someone do the work). But the above activity is a good exercise and I really enjoy doing it.

Regarding my mind, I still have a good memory. I could still remember the unit prices of all building materials, such as cement, tiles, hinges, hollow blocks etc.., that I purchased last year in the construction of the additional room in our beach house in Marinduque.

I STILL play bridge ( party and duplicate)and remember almost all the 52 cards based on the bidding. For those of you who do not play bridge, you only see 26 cards. The other half is hidden, but based on the bidding, and of your memory of how the bidding went as well as the cards already played, you actually can guess about 95% accuracy the location of all the 52 cards. I am proud to say, my memory is still good when it comes to bridge.

But I noticed that my memory now is not as good as when I was in high school. In high school, my teacher in world history wanted to give me 100%, since all my tests were all 100, but the highest grade he could legally gave me was only 95%. I had a photographic memory then. But today, that photographic memory is gone, gone, gone.

So my dear readers, can you tell me where to find the fountain of youth? Do you have a formula or a lifestyle that slow down the aging process? Please share and Good Day to you All
