Happy anniversary! Today marks year number 7 since you first became a Sifter and the community is better for having you. Thanks for your contributions!

Cheers my friend.

I just had a challenging few hours and sat down to the 'puter only to have to launch and relaunch the browser six times as someone left a slew of windows full of tabs open for hours and low and behold the nicest occurrence of my day, truly so.

I am about to retire. I will get three hours sleep then getting up to drive to the Tx Renaissance Festival for the day. It will be about an hour and a half drive.

My drinking days are long since gone now. I did verily enjoy my Courvoisier and wine for that matter. I do still miss El Dorado 15 year rum occasionally. I am, though, raising a St. Pauli Girl NA to you. I hope not to be slighting you...Salute Rougy. Never had the pleasure of Mexican brandy. Sounds intriguing.

I Ching? Rougy, you surprise me. From what translation is that quote? It does not ring of the Wilhelm Baynes. That is my default translation since '72 though I have a large collection. Do you use the sticks?

Your simian statement reminded me of the Principia's, and I paraphrase, a monkey looks into a mirror, an apostle does not look out.

You are ever the poet, sir.

As for me, I am the happiest of my life and happy when I have the sense to be. Healthy, my years weigh heavily but I am better than in years and intend to be better yet.

And you my friend? Healthy? And happy? I hope both for you.

I think of you often as a matter of fact,...and well if I may add. The are a few here that have touched my life, mind and heart, interestingly so, and you are not among the least of those. I think quite often of your last missive.

And finally, to your owing me one, thank you so much for the sentiment, and the gift of hearing from you my friend.

Cheers, unmet friend. Socking down a shot of Mexican brandy in your honor. Gonna chase it with some vino of indiscriminate origins.

Salute! May happiness be yours, now.

(shudder...good stuff....)

I consulted the "I Ching" today. It told me, and I quote:

"What unnecessary melancholy! You put your imagination and your soul aside and say: 'Look how sad I am!' This is what closes the way. It has no value whatsoever."

A gorilla can't very well buy the book of I Ching a drink, so I am at a loss as to how to pay my compliments.

Hope you're happy. Healthy. Not necessarily in that order.

Above all else...thanks for thinking of me.

You poured a little water on this cactus I call a heart.

It will sustain me....

And I owe you one.

Your comment had me rocking out to "Sympathy For The Devil" this morning. Was imagining your pre run psyche up

In my younger days when I played football, my friends and I would listen to this before we would go out and play. It used to get me so pumped up.

I used to listen to "Sympathy for the Devil" before the mile relay.

Sometimes words are blather.

Sometimes so much more.

A week later it was a hubba, hubba and ding dang dong, baby this sure didn't last to long. I know it, things are tough all over, ain't getting any better.

How'd that reassessment turn out...and good luck on that buck.

Were you relocating or vacating?

Just getting over the H3N2...2 1/2 weeks.

It is great to hear back from you...way too long.

You are a piece of work my friend.

Didn't forget you.

Drove from Boulder to Santa Fe with you in mind.

Reassessing everything on my end of the line...

Do what you can; be what you must.

Make a buck, somehow.

Pip pip, Cheerio, wat?

(hubba hubba, ding ding, baby, you got everything)

chicchorea says...

Hello friend...been back around here some lately...missed seeing you here.

I hope and trust you are well and happy.
