Unless the bolts came out and starter is loose, (very unlikely).. the
starter needs replaced. OR.. you have a couple teeth off the Ring gear of
the Torque converter flex plate.
If you're inclined, try to turn the engine a little with the belts/pulleys.
Usually though, that problem is intermittent for a while... bad luck for
you, if you can never get it to engage.
Yeh, I'm a Krusty old Geezer, putting up with my 'smartass' is the price
you pay..DEAL with it!
