something to think about

It's a small world when a high school classmate from 30+ yrs ago from a very small school works in the same place as you. This friend just sent this article to me and I thought I would pass it on.

Re: something to think about

An interesting and thoughtful read. Thanks for posting it.

I'm at that age where I need to be aware of the signs for a heart attack. I try to stay active, but it tends to go in cycles. It could clearly happen to me.

When a government takes over a people’s economic life it becomes absolute, and when it has become absolute it destroys the arts, the minds, the liberties and the meaning of the people it governs.

Re: something to think about

I am a little older, but last Dec.26th had 2 stents placed in my heart.

It was in pre for knee replacement surgery, that I had a stress test. My family Dr. said the test looked good, but the heart Dr. scheduled the test to check for the blockages, found 2, implanted the stents.

Never had a sign of a heart attack.

Just another thing about getting old.

I now feel like that old car the kid found in the junk yard, he replaced some parts and got it running, old junker or fine street rod. Some days I feel like the one, other days like the other.


Keep the shinny side up, rubber side down. See you in Gillette.

Leaving on Friday, 8AM.

something to think about

Thanks, Doug. Great post. If your lucky, like the gentlemen in the article, you get some warning. I guess when it's your time....

Re: something to think about

I'm starting to realize that growing older ain't for the faint at heart.
