For the last few years, whenever something related to age comes up in conversation, Mr. GeoK has calmly stated that we're middle aged. I've steadfastly disagreed, arguing that middle age is based on how you feel, not a number. But I think I'm finally ready to concede that he's right. The tipping point for me? The decision to swap out the flimsy OEM insoles in my walking shoes and hiking boots for aftermarket insoles that treat my middle aged feet with the respect they deserve!
