It's been a few years..
« on: July 23, 2014, 01:15:17 AM »
I used to come here quite a bit, but may recognize the name, most won't. Life has changed a lot for me over the past several years, being several years older is one change that occurred and will hopefully continue.
So I'm 55 today and just happened to open the happy birthday email sent by the guy or gal working their fingers to the bone in the birthday notification dungeon. Thanks birthday dungeon worker!
I used to live in Texas and thanks to a death and greyhound I now live in Ohio again and giving some serious thought to volunteering at a local bicycle co-op to repair bicycles. I can't really ride them anymore, but still know how to turn wrenches and so on. I'm disabled so my working days are over except for the stuff I want to do and laying around getting fat for the first time in my life wasn't on my wish list.
I'm happy to say I haven't been in a church since..oh yeah..election day, but I just voted then. Other than that.. Oh yeah...got a sandwich once in a sandwich line while homeless for a while and did winter out a season in a mission, but no praying required, just an extraordinarily uncomfortable cot and food no restaurant in the western world could sell legally. I did tell a preacher at one place to go have forced sex with himself, but I may have used some more colorful language.
I still refuse to take serious the most ridiculous notion ever invented, religion so I don't debate it and prefer to just let them rattle on about their book as long as they leave me out of that shit..
If anyone remembers, I was caring for an elderly woman in Texas, but she had a massive stroke a few years back and died later that night.. I still miss her, but I've moved on and got my life together for the most part. I'm getting dentures in a few weeks so I'm excited about that and I still have long hair. Other than that life is good. I live downtown in the capital on the 7th floor with a great view of the city even if it's only through a dinky window I can only partially open.
That's about it..

Thanks. The picture is familiar, but I really really really suck at names.  :blank:

Hey there atheola, you were still here when I first started hanging around these parts. Good to see you back!
My tolerance for BS is limited, and I use up most of it IRL.

I recognize the name as well, but I don't really post a whole lot (in the major scheme of things) so you probably don't remember me either. Happy birthday! You are the same age as I am :)

You're right. I don't remember your username or picture, but that's OK. I'm firmly convinced 55 won't fall off you, crawl up my leg and infect me. I am however trying to develop a way for that to happen when when young people pass my way in reverse so 21 will fall off them to infect me.  So far results have been very disappointing. :)

Like they say: Welcome to the most addictive discussion on the internet - you've relapsed.

I remember you from such posts as http://whywontgodhealamputees.com/forums/index.php/topic,20953.msg498849.html#msg498849 Nice to see you back. You can take the person out of WWGHA but not the WWGHA out of a person.

Don't worry. You're remembered by those of us foolish enough to have been around that long. Welcome back. And happy birthday. I've got one in a couple of days too.

There have a been so many for both of us that you'd think they'd all be used up by now. ;D

Not everyone is entitled to their own opinion. They're all entitled to mine though.

...and still a fan of the Cincinnati One and Done's. (Bengals) Man, that post feels like I've aged a bit. That picture was from some celebration at Wright Patterson Air Force base where they had a flyover of a squadron of WWII bombers. It flew right over the apartment that day and woke me up. I thought we were under attack. I can see why people in cities in WWII might have been terrified long before the bombs dropped. Those things are LOUD.

Thanks screwtape. Got most of my heath back in reasonable shape except an arthritic hip grinding to dust inside my body.. That's always fun.

Welcome back. You may or may not recall me as Lucifer.
The truth is absolute. Life forms are specks of specks (...) of specks of dust in the universe.
Why settle for normal, when you can be so much more? Why settle for something, when you can have everything?

Its all coming back.. Well not all of it.. About 4%.. Lucifer is a familiar one indeed.
I've diverged my dumb comments over several sites and no longer live in a shed in Texas too so I have other ways to kill time as well like going out to eat and blah blah blah.. I'm not a pure hermit anymore..  ;)

Where's that $50 you borrowed?
