Thanks Rowdy.

Once I hit my goal weight, I inherited some money from a distant relative. Someone my mother was closer to than I was, but my mother for some reason was left out of the will. So I thought it fair to share my good fortune and offer her a trip to the Grand Canyon, somewhere she had always dreamed of going. So she was going from Halifax to Toronto and I was going Ottawa to Toronto and we were to meet at the gate before our flight to Phoenix. However, I didnt tell her that I had lost the weight (or that I had shaved my head, or that I replaced the glasses with contacts). My own mother didn't recognize me at all. :)

You always had fantastic mental energy.  I always marveled at it.  Much like Triumph here too.  I envy that you found a way to make it totally productive.  I have such a hard time seeing a path!! I just dont think I'm smart enough.  Lack of gumption = stupidity  :evil:

I designed the jackets for the running team.

It took decades of believing I wasn't good enough before realizing what all I could do.

Takes one to know one? :)    Moustic is as funny in person as on in the interweb series of tubes.

 

PK: Actually, I am writing. As per the interview above, I've started my book. Seventy pages in thus far. Rather than being sanguine on a hockey forum or snarky on a politics forum, I'm being salubrious in e-book form. :)

As per the interview, I'm working on a podcast. My very first guest was a guy I met on the Flames board and he wore his Calgary jersey. I told my second guest that if she wore her Flyers jersey I was stopping the interview and getting my Devils jersey. :)
