Welcome to my world. Today's post is a no-nonsense account of "life lived." For those of you who are just joining us, that means: "Here is what i'm thinking about," ...BTW: if you need a title to make any conversation relevant enough for you to consider, we may already not be friends, so....there's that........ wow... i lose.. i just used "btw."
