I told the Dr. no I never have a pain of any kind and my confidence level is very high. Dr. Adams says well we need to do a blood test. He said a fellow my age should have some pains. The blood test came back 25%Scotch and 75% Burbon.

You don't want to take Cialis. Haven't you seen the ads? You end up outside somewhere sitting in a bathtub!!

Nope. Bennies were little white pills with a + on them.





And why do I know that? Just from my misspent youth while working at Disneyland back in the 70s....

You are probably right because I tried to forget most of those fuzzy years .LOL

I don't complain about the aches and pains. My back is a bit fubared after 34 years on the streets and so is my right shoulder, but I really don't care. I cheated the Reaper twice and that gives me some appreciation for things without the complaining. Back in '09 when we were getting ready to have the G-20 Summit in Pittsburgh, I was assigned to be a tac team commander. We were 4 days out and getting some new gear at the shop when I had chest pains. The guys rushed me into a medic unit and to the ER. They found a "widowmaker" coronary blockage, 95% blocked. The cardiologist fixed it with no heart damage and I worked the Summit 2 days later. Then, in '10 I had to have my Mitral Valve rebuilt at Cleveland Clinic. The surgeon wanted to do a double bypass because he mistrusted stents and wanted me to have a full life post surgery. I ok'ed it and all went well, even though I was convinced that I had a decent chance of not making it off of the table. I consider this cheat #2. Everything's been fine since, but this started me thinking about many things, including that it was time to get out of public safety. I took my retirement in '11.

I sell auto parts now along with my guns as a side business still. Deal with the aches and pains and whatever. Life is fleeting. Enjoy shooting! That's what they make Aleve for.

I always thought it might be fun to sit outside in a bathtub. I tried it once and the neighbors yelled at me.

No wonder why they call Disneyland "The Happiest Place on Earth".

They say you go through your second childhood when you get old. I'm getting old. No teeth, bald headed, and wearing diapers, just like a baby.
