  • Bret,

    I have read all 391 of your blogs at least I think it was 391 and enjoyed them all.

    Things we have in common and items that crossed both our paths:

    I was on January 25 1945.I too am a wooden monkey.

    I too was transfixed by 11-11 for many months, though I do not know of any significant impact that 11-11 played in my life. Maybe I missed it.

    Someone also shot my best dog.

    I was raised in a military family and lived in several places, though for the most part California.

    I live alone on a small farm with my three dogs and like it that way.

    I moved to the Ozarks nearly a decade and half ago. I consider that to be about 1/4 century late.

    A little more about myself:

    I graduated from high school in 1963.

    ALL though I went on to have a career as a scientist, because it was easy and expedient, to this day consider myself very much an anti establishment dyed in the wool Hippie.

    My value system was influenced by time spent in the very remote hills of West Virginia.

    I have returned to my roots as it were by living in the Ozark Mountain.

    I hope our paths cross some day because it would be nice to meet a grumpy old guy with a value system as far as I can ascertain, somewhat similar to mine.

    Thanks again for all the reading material

    Happy in the Ozarks

  • August 10, 1944 -- wood monkey.

    Amazing -- we have much in common.

    I live on 8 acres with 3 dogs -- moved to Land of Ark in 1992 -- but if you read my 391 blogs, you probably know all that and more.

    Hope our paths do cross some day -- BB
