One of the major comforts of being”old”——I use this term carefully as I hope to someday make to there!——-

IS you DO not CARE what people think except the guy in the mirro and a few others!!!

You do not give DAMN what the neighbors like or don’t about you!

Sometime the tinntanitus can keep you from hearing things you did NOT want to anyway!

Some of the roads that I have been dragged dwon were not even good prarie trails!! Yeah; I have the DAMAGE to prove it—- Hopefull I get to the “DAMNED AGE” to really enjoy it! I am trying to get the money the from 45+ years I paid into ss back.

At least I am so far not real sick;; damage is easier to recover from than sick!

-- Wood rescue is good for the environment and me! just rjR
