    Unlike B.D., I was always the first to know everything with my daughter – sometimes much more than I wanted to know ! My daughter would tell me everything !

    She still, at age 44 confides in me. I tease her that I never sure if I’m blessed or cursed that she’s always been so open with me….

    Some take personal delight in dumping you in cactus, mud , water, or rocky ground.

    I only had one, who was considerate enough to try to toss me on soft ground ( an oxymoron, when being hurled from a horse ) or sand.

    Ditto. Tinnitus is intermittent or at least not severe enough, usually, to distract me. However, I cannot accurately tell where a sound in emanating from at times, I have an aversion to loud noises, have auditory discrimination problems and I have no idea of how loud or soft I am speaking.

    I was with the 5th SFG in Southeast Asia – Vietnam, Thai-Cam and places undisclosed. While we always policed our butts and brass, I really don’t ever recall my team smoking when we were “working”. Afterwards, yes, and back at base camp definitely, but never when there was the possibility of hostiles lurking around.
