Born '36 in VT, raised in Adirondacks, world traveler thanks to US Army + USAF, getting older and more philosophical, reading and writing more obituaries than I'm comfortable with, but I'm gettin' there...

    Sounds like an old re-play of “The Bickersons” on Old Time Radio !!

    Can sympathize…There’s too many organs in the body that argue amongst theirselves about control, while all the brain wants to do is rest them all for the following days’ ordeal, but the rectum seizes control and as we all know, it’s some a$$hole that blocks everything up and ruins it for the rest of us.. >eye-roll<

    The theory goes for us elder sorts; "While standing/sitting up all day causes ‘fluids’ to sink to the bottom of our carcasses, lying flat in the night causes ‘the tide to come back in’ and thus, we pee. I forget where I read that and don’t care. Since I got me an Oxygenator and a 20-foot cannula, I get up and go, winding up two 4-hour chunks of SOLID SLEEP !! ♥

    The pix is gone now for some mysterious reason, but Ma had ‘flashed’ the ol’ Kodak for Dad back in ‘33 and that photo ain’t part of The Family Album these days…Moral: 19 y/o girls liked to “show off” then as much as they do today..

    Wherever you go, whatever you do, there’ll always be a ‘Typhoid Mary’ in our midst, ready to spew “The Truth” and demand ya to “Read this Pamphlet !!”

    Really…. A fine example of the US Gummint way of getting things built/done/erected by the ‘lowest bidder’ method. Case in point; I’d been assigned to a new ‘place’ where a Lawn and Garden Co. from Michigan had been given the contract to put up our 80-foot tall radar and dome. They knew about as much about doing that than I know about brain micro-surgery.. They skipped town, job undone and left behind a LOAD of IOU’s at local rural vendors, motels, restaurants, tractor dealers, hardware stores and road-builders that almost devastated the local economy… I prefer the French way of doing it, ie; between the highest and lowest, the middle guy gets the deal. (It took 7+ years to unscramble all those eggs..)
