I feel your pain. I "came off" a ladder a few days before Christmas. When I came down my right hip landed on the brick flower bed wall. It swole up about the size of a soccer ball. It still hurts! I'm just thankful I didn't land on my back. I've been told that if you're over 50, you got no business on a ladder. At 66, I'm beginning to understand.

The OP's experience brings to mind the saying: "I won't tip toe through life to arrive safely at death". But.......

The shoulder healed, more or less. Turned out to be a bad sprain fortunately - nothing torn or broken. So I’m back in business now. I think I was sitting alone late at night feeling sorry for myself when I wrote that.

We live in a vineyard so we have a lot of choices (19 varieties of grapes I think) but right now I’m on a Barbera kick. We grow Petit Verdot, Petit Sirah and some table grapes on our part of the vineyard.

I guess my “favorite” is Petit Syrah and I have a couple cases of the 17 and a case of 14 keeping me busy. Ive also discovered, since moving here, that late harvest dessert wines are a delight. I never liked sweet wines, but the Dessert Syrah and Late Harvest Voignier (both available from the winery) have found their way into my cellar.

Go to https://naggiarvineyards.com/ to see the wines currently available commercially. I find about half of them pleasing to my palate but of course taste is an individual experience. They create a lot of their own blends so their names get a little confusing, if not nebulous. I like to know what grapes contributed to my wines.

I also make wine with my neighbor and we have a batch of Cabernet Franc and Viognier going, but that isn’t commercially available and of course you never really know until you bottle them. Also before moving here I wasn’t even aware of Viognier and now its probably my favorite white.

I never stop doing, just a little slower at 70. And yes to bicycles and motorcycles, keeps the balance sharp. Onward and upward as long as the body cooperates.
