reality, curiosity, and the typical philosophy of dealing with it.

So I'm working away and in my business I have to do quite a bit of research. I'm on 9 tabs ....I click by accident on something that in an ad had obits. Huh weird. SOooooo I clicked and what they do is provide info on people in specific areas. Then get you to buy packages to learn more send cards etc.. Great idea!

I typed in my old stomping grounds of Tinhuhcee (for our foreign friends thats Tennessee with an accent). DANG five people I went to school with are DEAD just this year!!!!!! Unfortunately on the last page I found my old friend Bubba my right tackle I played ball with in high school. I was the guard and he the tackle. What a good guy back then.

Weird, and kind of sad. Sorry to hear about your old friend. I know a few classmates for high school and college have passed, too. Found out about another, just recently. Life is short. Live every day like it's your last.

Unfortunately the older you get the more people who you knew die. Celebrate every day above ground.

Its always strange when you find out a friend has died regardless of how long its been since you last seen them. I am however happy to hear that there really are good ol boys called Bubba and that they don't just exist on tv. That you have good memories of this dude is a positive. Here's to old friends and going out in style

Yeah Dana,

Remember when we were young and we though we were gonna live forever!Rolleyes That's called the illusion of youth sir.

The mind blowing thing of course, is how fast the whole thing went.
Treasure your days, your loved ones, and the time you have left.

ha....Thanks guys!!!

True it seems SO fast. I think back on all the stuff I've done which I look at in perspective. I dont sit around and waste my life in front of the tv.

One way to look at it.... I was reading "their" names and not my own....ConfusedBig GrinBig GrinBig GrinBig Grin nahhh I dont mean that to be mean. But any day above is a good one. Example when people say...oh its my blah blah ith birthday as if its a sad day. My response is always "Beats the Alternative" Big Grin

My 57th is coming up in 12 days and I'm excited about it. So where ole Bubba cant celebrate as stated I will honor his. He indeed was a good guy....HEY wait.... so ITS TRUE... good guys die young!!! I"ll live FOREVER!!!!

and Luke...that was cool.
