I am wearing those same 50s style glasses as I type these words.
(I agree, it's time for an update)
DW has been lobbying for replacements, but I have four (4)
pair now (counting prescription sunglasses) and so I just continue on.
Anyway, the photos are recent.
The "Mr. Peepers" specs predate the marriage by several years.
The heck with your buddy, Cut-Throat, who's the girl holding it?
The book written on E-R.org, "The Military Guide to Financial Independence and Retirement", on sale now! For more info see "About Me" in my profile.
I don't spend much time here anymore, so please send me a PM. Thanks.
Az, I am sorry you were sick. I wondered where you had been for the past few weeks. It sounds like you have developed an appreciation that good health is not always in our control:
This experience was a reminder for me that even though I work out almost every day, I'm never guaranteed my health tomorrow. I wish life could be longer, but wishing won't change anything. So the best I can do is savor every minute of it!
No more lawyer stuff, no more political stuff, so no more CYA
Funny thing was, a couple days after i wrote that blog I had developed back pain that lasted another week and a half; I presume from all the coughing I did. So i was on Ibuprofen that whole time (1600mg/day!). So finally, as of a few days ago, nothing hurts! This situation really has allowed me to re-appreciate health.
Yes, time really does seem fleeting sometime, and Ive admittingly been going through a bit of a mid-life crisis lately. I guess that's both a good thing and a bad, but i do wish time would slow down a bit.
