Generally not happy or unhappy. Just dealing with life and it’s curve balls.

Well I don’t know about that, but it sure makes it feel like you don’t have to swing at every pitch that’s thrown at you!

I'm OK. Could be a lot happier if I had a retirement to look forward to and a wife who could find some happiness. Unfortunately, I'm one of those types who struggles to maintain happiness when those around me, particularly my wife, isn't happy. The mood just bleeds over, I guess.

Generally though, I'm pretty content.

I'm the same age as you (OP) but am having a hard time coming to grips that 54 is now referred to as "older guys"... laugh

Zero complaints otherwise.

I hear you. I'm 53. The only blood related men older than me are my dad, 82, and my uncle at 85. When they're gone, I'm the patriarch of the family. That has me thinking, WTH?

Content for now. Happy comes during hunting season and the holiday season for me. I never really liked summer.

Happy???
I’d be happier if I had hit that big lotto jackpot… I’m ok though…not happy, not sad. Both are transitory…gotta replace my swamp cooler pads today and am happy that I can, but I’d be happier if I didn’t have to…

I’m good. There have been happier and less happy times throughout my life; that’s life.

Yup. Me and cuz, we both lost our dads last yr.
So now we are the old guys (both almost 60).
Strange how all of a sudden "it" happens.

Hopefully we have a good deer season this yr (cuz and I hunt together).
Pretty much live for deer season.
Used to hunt a really cool spot.
Nothing even half as good since.

Aint bitchin. Just is what it is.
Was fortunate enough to hunt a good spot for damn near 20 yrs.

Things change.

Ain't that the truth. I'm a slow learner at life, but ven I've realized that if you're feeling on top of the world, hold on because it won't last long. Not a complaint, but an observation. Nothing stays the same very long. Conditions like happy or sad are, as Middlefork_Miner said above, transitory.

That particular offering from sharpsman could be definitely be classified as chipper compared to most of grumpy-grump's posts.

For the most part yes. Retired from the USN and have a good teaching job. At 59 years old I can see retirement in the near future. Got to meet and marry a great gal. Done a lot of hunting and fishing all over the world. Able to live comfortably and not worry about $$$. Not much to complain about. I think the only things I would do different was to spend more time with my father before cancer took him. Got wrapped up in a military career and lost focus on the old man and then suddenly he was gone. That is my biggest regret.


You get out of life what you are willing to accept. If you ain't happy, do something about it!

At a point where IDGAF.
Happy? Not happy?
Really don't care.
Kinda like it, don't get excited about much. Sometimes that's bad. Mostly, it's good.
