There's not one day of the year that I don't get out into the countryside, OK, I only live a quarter of a mile from the edge of open countryside, so it's not hard for me to get there everyday, so at 54 I accept whatever the day brings, you just dress for it. I'm very much, and always have been an outdoor person.
