Thanks, Dave. Your kind praise spurs me on in the battle between my old bones and the instrument!

I hear you, buddy.  I will hit the big 70 in January! YikesI But nothing, and I mean absolutely nothing, will keep me from several hours a day on my guitar, banjo, and fiddle. I figure, now that I am retired, every day is Saturday! You are one of the most talented musicians on here, and so I always look for your performances first.

Where does the time go? I've come to accept the physical limitations which come with age, but mine are of a degree which interfere with my ability to play for more than a couple of hours per day. It's disheartening, but I simply do the best I can. When I can no longer improve, I'm likely to give it up, or just play casually. I recently purchased a $50 mandolin, which has given me a new outlook on my musical future. After working with it for about 80 hours I can already produce some very interesting music, with less stress on my musculature. Guitar requires much more intensive physical output, so mandolin may extend my musical life. A better mandolin is in my future, as financing will allow. You might want to consider adding a fourth instrument to your already considerable collection. The mando is more fun than a barrel of monkeys, and light as a feather. I can even stand and play with it, something I can no longer do with my guitar (balance issues). I guess in a nutshell, if it stops being fun, I'll stop playing. That said, I don't see it happening. Keep at it Dave, it's food for the soul!
