Be careful... my buddy Hardcore Harry almost had to have his toe amputated this winter. It's healing now I guess.

Its fine. Just an old geezer that worries about every ache, pain, bump etc. What happened with his toe?

Some kind of infection that spread.

Guess you are getting all your cross training in by snow shoveling.

You'll be all buffed out when spring comes! Ha.

I'll be one-eared. While vacuuming and moving stuff (Chrissy's shoes) in our closet I smashed my right ear on the sharp edge of the closet door. It felt like an axe had split my ear open...bled like a pig. I guess I should live in a germ-free bubble but I'd probably stumble and break my toe which would get infected and I would die anyway.

Last Friday had another minor procedure for basil-cell skin stuff on back of left arm...had been on my back and right arm...usually in office either minor 'surgery' with a razor blade or freezing but twice had more extensive 'surgery' where the cutting was deeper and more was done to numb the area.

Use way more sunblock now but I had how greasy I feel after I put the stuff on. Even winter I put stuff on cheeks and nose...not every time but at least half the time. I do not go shirtless anymore when its warm and sunny...maybe for 10 minutes but it's pretty short. Don't worry about tan because...I don't go shirtless for anyone to see my pale whiteman skin.

I even wear long sleeves at times even when its warm enough to be in shirtsleeves. Overall I still am in okay condition compared to others...for one thing I'm alive.

I'll ramble on a little more. I googled a few other guys after finding out Dave Kunz died. Saw Marv Kangas had also died. I did see that Stan Niemi had been (not sure if still there) in Elk Grove, CA. That is suburb on south side of Sacramento. We went to a small church there. He is a pastor or preacher there. Every year ole Harry Stevenson sends me a message or two...and Ralph Worthing posts stuff around Grandmas. He has some sort of streak...he may have run all of them or at least he has run for several years in a row.
