Amen!A little off topic but, what the hell. At 67 years old I've seen/learned a thing or two. Guys (or women I suppose) who try to adapt to something other than their own true nature to please a mate always wind up unhappy. Why in hell would you do that? Set yourself up for a lifetime of pretending. I told both my kids, if you can't be 100% yourself the whole thing is shit, and will fall apart.
Cool memories, appreciate them, thanks for sharing. Sorry for your loss.Since we are in it this deep, I'll share a little something with you guys. Yeah I know it's 3 o'clock in the morning but I just don't sleep that much anymore. I was working as a surveyor/engineer in the 70s and was assigned to an addition of a nearby hospital. My job was to go up on the steel superstructure and insure each added floor was plumb and level. Cheaper than building upon a mistake. This Hospital (Holy Name, Teaneck, NJ) had a nursing school. I was there for months. As spring came around I was taken by one of the nursing students I saw walking forth and back to classes. I hollered her up from up on the structure. She turned around and said; "If you want to talk to me, come down here". I did. A couple weeks later I took her out for a picnic and swimming on my old Pan. A year after that we were married. And thats that. She gave me two beautiful children. Passed from cancer in fall of '06. Forgive an old man for rambling. Like I said I just don't sleep that much.
