It's been almost exactly 3 years

Postby ScottQuier » 01 Aug 2017 12:54

Hello Everybody,

It's been almost exactly three years since I was last posting and contributing here. I'm more than a little surprised my account is still active!

A LOT has happened to me in that time. I've:
  • Had a heart attack
  • Had triple-bypass surgery (CABG - Cardiac Arterial Bypass Graft)
  • Gone through a very painful divorce - with no hyperbole, it almost killed me. I've recovered and am happy again, happier than I can ever remember being.
  • Found a girl-friend (eHarmony - yes, it does work for some!)
  • Gotten married to my best friend! Ya!
I don't know how much of contributor I can be - with combining house-holds, I've not been able to physically get to my desktop computer since April.

Your picture has changed!
I am sure you look younger.

I should be dead but I have made 80 - so enjoy it while you can.

Oh, I don't know. I think Gandalf the Grey had certain measure of class. But, no me. I'm a goof!

Thanks Frank.

There should be a "Like" button, similar to what one has in FaceBook.
