Two years ago I had a yard sale. Had over 350 VHS tapes That I only asked .50 cents a piece for. Everyone stated they didn't have a VCR anymore. I took the tapes to the local salvation army place.

I was 17 years old. We were camping some where in Canada. The owner of the camp grounds invited everyone to his house to watch it on his TV. The place was packed. That's a memory I wont soon forget.

Our New York State fair is held in Syracuse. It's better to go during the week. On the weekends you have to be packed in with the other 90 to 100 thousand people.

We have the bakeing contests, the farm animlas and the whole shebang.
It seems like when I and the wife go, It's 95F. and full sun. We don't go much anymore.

Well as in another month I will be 64 I can tell you tastes buds do change. I used to love watermelon and bananas. Just the taste of anything water melon is gross. Now banana flavor I can eat. But anything with a real banana in it just makes me gag. As a kid I loved them.

So the foods that they once loved, They really might not like anymore.

My Mom called me tonight and said her oldest sister died this morning. She was 90. She was always the cool Aunt.
Out of five siblings It just my mom and her younger brother now.
That's how life goes. You watch the ones go before you.

I'm am doing well Julie. Don't post much on the main boards anymore. The Angst isn't worth it:)


Thanks again for the book suggestion, James!

You are very welcome Sarge.

James, might I say, that angst is in the mind of the beholder.

Meow.

That is true. But, I find that angst will find you. So why go looking for it, Or posting for it?
As I am now and old geezer of almost 64. I think, That maybe just maybe, I'm getting a bit wiser.

Annie, I'm going to quote a passage from your last post that hits home for me. Its this. ( putting wretchedness into words )
I cant thank you enough for describing a problem, That I'm sure most of us have when trying to describe a hell we have gone through when trying to post in here.

I have found though, That some one who has gone through the same trauma, Can relate with what you are trying to say no matter how bad you say it.

Annie, I really take that passage to heart. It puts into words a feeling that I have never been able to communicate. Thank you.

I'm glad that this space is of help. Yes it goes dormant for a bit. But all anyone has to do is ask a mod to open it so you can post.

I too find this a place that gives me a different perspective on some things that some, Or all us go through.
So use this space as you need it.
