25th Anniversary

November 7, 1989... Fall of Berlin Wall
and...
First day in recovery after cancer surgery... in a morhphine stupor, watching TV from the hospital bed... The first official day of retirement.

The history:
Berlin Wall - Cold War - HISTORY.com

and from RT:
http://rt.com/news/201255-berlin-wall-anniversary-25/

For us, the final curtain of WWII.

Don't forget Poland. They were fighting the good fight well before the wall fell. Solidarity!

Your 25 years is great news; for you of course, but also for others facing uncertainty regarding survival rates. Three years from surgery next ground hog's day for me. Funny, the less pertinent things we remember so vividly.

Needless to say, the experience did make my ER decision easier. And if I live so long as to outlast my money, I'll still be smiling.
