…an indeterminate past

I am far stronger than you realize…… I am far wiser than you think…… what was once your life -- is now my legend…

Recently noted in the local newspaper was the obituary of an old man I barely knew. He was eighty-three years old and his life was summed up in a mere 58 words? ;xNLx;;xNLx;;xNLx;That's his legacy ...this is mine.

Ok, so I don't remember the exact date, so what. I do remember the girl's name, how many points do I get for that? We fooled around to almost the last possible day to tie the knot and I needed to get an addition 5 days of 'emergency' leave before proceeding to NAS El Torro Ca.

DI V O R CE

Not anything like the song. No children, for sure. I had been stationed in Yuma AZ for about a year and due to be discharged in April so I stopped the BAQ payments to Linda who was living in Alabama. We had called it quits in early '75 but as it mattered not-at-all, she continued to draw about $300 a month quarter allowance while she lived tn 'bama.

People die. That's all there is to it. This guy died and few noticed. When it comes to dying, one thing's for sure, just like being chased by a hungry bear, you don't want to be last.
