Another Place, Another Time

I miss people, places and things.
I miss things past.

What was that guy's name that I met in Rudy's Bar & Grill in Hell's Kitchen that was so fascinating?
What happened on the last episode of (the new) "Battlestar Galactica" that I watched two days ago?
When did my friend George jump into a swimming pool and break his neck?
What happened to my passport?

I can't remember.
And it's starting to worry me.

There is no history in my family of the disease that Alois Alzheimer diagnosed in 1906.
There is no history in my family of cancer, other than the intestinal cancer my Grandmother had and beat sometime in the 1980's.
There is no history in my family of leukemia, Parkinson’s, Lou Gering’s and all of those other proper nouns.
There is a history in my family among males of heart attack, but late in life, and sudden. Oh, so sudden.
There is a history in my family among males to drink themselves to death. Gangrene, even. Oh, so slow.

All of this to say that I think that I am okay.

Blame it on the nicotine withdrawal.

My memory loss officially worries me. It's been happening for "years," but I cannot remember for how long.

The photo is of "Scar" as "Vampiralla" many, many years ago.

Go out and find something beautiful to stare at for a while.

I havent been sick with a cold since I quit smoking, 2 3/4 years ago. This week I have had sinus drainage and that caused this major sore throat, which has persisted for 5 days now. Im on antibiotics so hopefully they will kick in soon, but some of the drainage got to my chest, and I hope I dont get a chest cold.

Now, I can only imagine how I would be feeling right about now if I still smoked. Id probably never leave the bed.

As far as the memory goes, chalk it up to ADHD. LOL. Less important stuff gets shuffled around for more important stuff and then reshuffled back again.

You are a fan of BG huh? Man, we have more in common than I think we both realize.

Soon I will get the fundage together and come hang out, I promise.

chip, your apparent brother
