It has not been a good decade for my wife and I. We lost another close relative last night. One could actually say that this old lady in Massachusetts had been her best friend and confidant for more than 35 years. I still can't cry for another dead body but this mixed with everything else that is going on, especially for the last decade, all the broken bones and medical problems and loss of income mixed with increasing prices for everything has simply changed me. Today I go to my first VA medical appointment for the ACA, maybe being around some guys who have lost more than me will let me be grateful for something again. I almost would have, now that I look back on it wish that wave had taken me over the side instead of left me with another arthritic joint. I would have missed out on the better parts of my life to be sure but I also would not know such extended periods of assault on my wife. Do not pray for Flo, she is dead, if you pray or burn incense do it for Joann.
