I agree with you Joe... and I'm only 63 as well!

A number of years ago I was working in the Wilkinson Photo Products booth 
at Photokina. That was the year I bought a motor, in Bonn, for my Leica R3 
(on topic :) At the end of each day we went out to dinner. One evening, we 
went to our favorite Italian restaurant in Köln where we were well known. 
After dinner (which had plenty of wine flowing) everyone had shots of Anis 
liqueur and an espresso-cup of espresso. Dave King, sitting opposite me did 
not like espresso and I really dislike Anis. So we traded. After about six 
rounds (12 Anis' for Dave, 12 espresso's for me,) Dave was blotto and had 
to be carried out. I drove home (Hennef) about 30 minutes away. I was in 
bed by 11pm and my eyes would not shut. I had to put up the external window 
shutter as with the shutter down, it was completely black in my bedroom. 
With the shutter up, street light let my eyes see something other than 
black. I laid there until 6am, zero sleep, got up, took a semi cold shower, 
and went back to work. I was wired all day! Didn't go out that night, went 
to bed. Finally some sleep.
