Jeez, tell us how you really feel. But I'm with you on most of this, but I tend to roll with the punches. Life just seems to be better that way. Remember how airline travel used to be special. People would dress up a bit for the flight. Now your lucky if you're not sitting next to some guy in sweat pants and a tank top! I now rank airline travel (just)slightly above a bus trip.
Congratulations on your DSA award. I was just notified that I'm getting a the similar award from my chapter. I guess it means that we survived long enough and been active enough to earn this honor.
You did a good thing with the Gordon tribute with Wee Ones, and he got to know that his friends thought so much of him. Way to go.
