Re: 30 years

Funny... today, ten years makes little difference at all in
ages... I mean common... 70 or 80... ya all hurt like hell
and talk about stuff we swore we'd never talk about... I mean
some of us may have been dumb enuff to say: "Shoot me if I do
that... "today I called a friend while he was waiting inna
Doc's office and he was talking about blood pressure... the
only blood pressure we worried about back inna day was...
uh... hmmmmmmm... nevermind... anyway so here we are with 
the same or similar aches and pains and it's the topic of
conversation... today driving to the store I was wishing only
the worst things happen to the NVA who shot off that 122 
back in '68... some days are like that... then there's the
hands... can't blame no Vietnamese for that... it's just
parta life... but then there are those we lost way too
soon... On the Spalding playground, he was a "big kid"... 
in HS he was closer in age and things weren't quite so cut
and dried but still, I hadn't been invited to eat at the big
kids' table yet... His older brother ('61) and I talk as if
we are no more than a couple a days apart in age now... So
believe it or not it has been 30 years since we lost "the
walk"... We all miss you, Chuck GARDINER ('63-RIP)!!!!!!!!!!!
