I'm still HERE! [View all]

I haven't posted in a while because my macular degeneration has gone downhill rapidle. It's very difficult for me to read and also to type.

In the past few years I've survived skin cancer, prostate cancer, colon cancer, afib, sleep apnea, and probably one or two other maladies that I can't remember.


iI feel good, mostly.
I satill workk out (stationary bike and weights) twicw a day.
As red Skelton once quipped "Any morning I wake up and don'
t smell flowers or see candles is gonna be a good day."

All the best to you guys.
I'll still drop in from time to time.
