    Greetings Oldster. I blush to be praised by someone with your great size, and even more impressive power. It's not that many years before you're my age, and goodness knows what you'll be lifting then ...

    Pshaw. No blushing necessary. I'm so slender and willowy, I barely throw a shadow. I don't think my wife and friends see it the same way, but that's the story I'm sticking to!
