Yeah, Teri. Life is too big a deal to take seriously. :)
If I couldn't laugh at some of this stuff, I'd be in big trouble. Sorta like the convicted man said to the hangman, "couldn'y find a cleaner rope to hange me with? I could get an infection from that dirty old thing." :)
I'm just gonna have to try makin lifestyle changes once again. Easier said than done...but I'll do my best. Hell, I've had to do it so many times over the last 8 years or so, you'd think I'd be used to it.
Did you know that when I had my first heart attack, I had long hair that came down to the middle of my back...I usually wore it in a pony tail...and a long beard, sorta like Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top? Well, after that MI, I found myself lying in the hospital bed for a week with a balloon pump keeping my heart going. Sounded like an old washing machine. That's the time when I married Gayle in the ICU. Here's a pic of the wedding ceremony
Well, anyway, as I lay there day after day, going thru hot and cold flashes, my head would sweat like crazy. And it began to smell rather unpleasant. That's when I had it cut real short and I've kept it that way ever since. And my beard just became a rather short goatee. But now I've decided to let the whole beard grow out again. Just to remind me of the new changes I have to make. I think I'll keep the hair short...cuz it's just about
completely white now. Back then it was dark brown with a few gray streaks. I'm pretty sure I'm gonna keep the hair short, just cuz it's a lot easier to wash grease out of after crawling under a car or truck. (and old geezers look funny in ponytails or braids.)
Yeah...big deal. But it came to mind, so I thought I'd write it down. :)
