Still here.. In the past week I've had the first cold I've had in a few years..As my Dad used to say, its all cleared up now..Been quoting my Dad a lot lately.. He was quite a guy..We had our bumps and curves but he stuck by my side for years.. This virus is still killing people.. From my point of view its mostly people with bad lifestyles suffering the most.. I'm so blessed to have went in the direction I did...I did all that negative stuff but when I turned 40 I stopped and my life changed. It was like I woke up and became a new person.. There were things I did people didn't like but I moved forward to being a healthy individual. Change took years but I give Cathy credit for putting the Vegetarian icing on the cake.. Its when things like what is happening now I look back and say out loud "Thank you God for giving me the strength to move forward.. Believe me here, if I continued the way I was going I would not be here..

I've got this memory thing going on..Like How far back can I remember? With the help of pictures taken when I was a kid, I call them triggers. I remember things that were very different.. Railroad Steam Engines, when the troops left for War in WWII and when they came home. Flatbed rail road cars carrying Tanks to New York piers for shipment overseas.. The time I took a short cut walking to my Grandmothers and found a dead body and while snooping around in a abandoned building. It was purple and I learned later he drank himself to death.. The freedom train and the building of Bradley International Airport. It was originally built for WWII airplanes..I remember the Fighter planes taking off and landing.. Actually seen one crash..It was a nose dive he couldn't pull out of.. I think they named the airport after him.. Lt. Eugene Bradley.. I worked there, thanks to my wonderful Father (long story) as the Airport electrician for 20 years.. Yes, I've had a very interesting life so far and if I have learned anything its that time goes by so fast, don't blink because if you do, it will be next week..

"Older Me"

Yes, I'm OK.. Older yes.. And I actually thought I've seen it all until this virus came along... Still here in Niantic Connecticut and still getting a tingle of anger thinking of what could have been and wasn't.. No it won't pass it will be with me forever but that's OK I accept that.. I sometimes enjoy getting pissed off... Still sober almost 42 years now.. Still don't smoke, its been 20 years.. And now I am living thorough this Virus Bullshit.. Just checking in here and thinking life has been very good to me so far.. I still thank God everyday and am grateful for every moment..I don't think life is going to get any better for me so as long as it stays the same I'm content..
