    Hey BFD. Going well. I haven't taken any trips yet this year.
    I took 2 big trips last year.
    Went to the west coast in June and to the east coast in October.
    No plans for anything that grand this year.

    Good to see you are well. I did see a couple of pics you posted of your trip a while back. Insanely jealous to say the least!

    Good to see you're alive and kicking as well.
    How is the missus and that little one you 2 brewed up?

    ...and I do not smell like mothballs.

    Well... not all of me does. :(

    Wow. 7 years old.
    It goes fast.
    Hard to believe I've been stalking this place nearly 15 years.
    Hell my littles are 31, 30, & 27.
    And I have 3 grand littles.

    I know what you mean, it was almost 12 years ago I signed up. So much has changed since then in my world.
    My oldest is 15 now.
    Would be a freaky feeling being a Grandparent I reckon (in a good way).
    I imagine it puts a different perspective on things.

    The best part is watching your kids deal with the crap from their kids that they thought you were so mean about when it was coming from them. ;)

    I'll be 36. I was ok with 35...getting closer to 40 is causing me concern.
    Mostly because I'm afraid what will happen.
    At 30 I developed allergies (like typical allergies to pollen etc.), lost my ability to digest most dairy (cheese is still fine), and developed tinnitus with some minor hearing loss. -_-

    Welcome to the tinnitus club! I've had it for as long as I can remember, and it's getting increasingly worse. As it gets worse, my headphones get louder, making it worse, and the cycle continues. It's a terrible affliction.
