    I was 32, getting ready to be 38 in a week. :depressed:

    Part of me wishes I'd done it at least a decade earlier, but a larger part of me knows that I wouldn't have had the money or been able to appreciate it the way I do now. Hoping to move to a warmer climate so I can appreciate it whole lot more than I have lately!

    My apologies to the golfers.
    Calling Golf stupid is I am informed a TOS violation.

    Still hates Golf, unless the outing has windmills, clowns, and tiny little castles.

    Went to USN Dive School at 40. Wish I would have gone right after HS (all those years I could have been diving). One of the best decisions I have ever made.
