When I came home from Viet Nam in the summer of 1966, I was not yet 21 years old. I spent some time contemplating my navel and in doing so, I looked forward in wonder (and doubt) at what lay before me. I realized that in the year 2000, I would be 55. I could never contemplate being that old. It was just something I never thought I would achieve. Now it's 2010 and I'm staring 2011 in the face. Who'da thunk it?
Did you know that crampons, used by climbers in the snow and ice of mountains, were used by Hannibal more than 2200 years ago?
I love my digital camera. Saturday, I went to a soccer game - Chicago Fire vs D.C. United. I shot more than 200 photographs. I never would have done that with film. And there would have been so many shots I would have missed.
I watched some of "Conan the Barbarian" last night. All I could think of was a) how young he looked and b) The Governator. I am forever spoiled for Arnold's movies. Besides, the dialog was REALLY bad and Arnold's accent was THICK.
May one and all enjoy the work week.
