I am scared of horses due to several bad childhood experiences.

I wonder if he still has the ice-blue eyes? It's interesting (to me at least) how some people get better looking as they age, while others go the other way. Some people still look good, but just look completely different. Some look almost exactly the same, just a little older.

I wish I had been as discreet as you Amethyst, but I wrote "MT 4 EM" on the bathroom wall at school and drew a heart around it (where MT 4 EM stands for Major Tom 4 Emma Middleton - all names changed to protect the innocent, of course!) What I hadn't thought about was that we were the only 2 people in school with those initials. I was found out very swiftly

You're getting close! You could always just +1 a post in every thread and you'll be there in no time.

My avatar is the Combat Infantryman Badge (CIB). I was awarded the badge in July 1968 while operating in III Corps area of operations in Vietnam. Requirements~participate in active ground combat while assigned as a member of an infantry or Special Forces unit, brigade or smaller size, during any period subsequent to December 6, 1941.

No ceremony was conducted; just received a printed order from First Infantry Division in the "mail."

Mr. Crabby told me I was a "slob" when he was 14 and I was 13. This was because I had frizzy curly hair, which was not then in style, and also because I was his only serious rival in English class. I sorta fell out of love with him after that.

It was funny to see that he's in Rush Limbaugh territory now, as far as looks go.

I once went on a blind date. At the end of the evening I asked if she would like to go out again. Her reply: "I think we have been seeing too much of each other". That was 40+ years ago and still cracks me up. What a great reply and lousy date.
