Well I know I haven't been on the planet much but I never knew you were going through all this bypass stuff. Glad you made it okay. My dad had triple bypass when he was 69 and now he's going to be 80 in April he's doing pretty good. Best of luck to you my friend glad you're okay.
Cheers, my friend.
I like it better here and it's a stone's throw away from Florence. I am truly concerned for the direction of the country-- I don't know if you've seen the film Idiocracy, but I think that's more or less the way things are headed.
I don't jeer at rural America, but feel, honestly, that intellectualism has become a negative in today's America. And that's a damned shame.
Sorry I didn't see your note sooner, BT. I don't check in very often. Anyway I am enjoying myself these days. I live on roughly 70 acres & raise quarter horses so now I have plenty on time to ride. I don't if there is anything more peaceful than getting on a horse watching nature. I'm a pretty simple man I suppose. My youngest daughter (14) competes in barrel racing & while she is fearless my stomach is in a knot when I watch her. My other daughter is 19 & is a special needs kid so the wife & I have a day when all the kids from her school come over ride, swim, etc. They have a blast. I love working in my fairly good sized veggie garden. I recently started restoring old farm tractors. So to answer your question, I am enjoying retirement. I keep busy but without the pressure of a deadline.
