I'm a creationist... I believe that man created God.

This week it was the last category.. A buddy of mine who lived right up the street, who I rode with for over 25 years... Good man . smart, inventive, funny. Marine and Nam vet. Saw some of the worst in 68-69....

He'll be missed....
Know the feeling, buddy. Spent 11 years in the RAF and said farewell to so many good people as I moved around and then left.

Never really inures one to loss does it. My best friend will be moving, as soon as she can sell her bungalow, to live near her really caring son. At 74 and With increasing arthritic problems she needs the security. And sonpme one to do those DIY jobs done that I can no longer manage! Her husband, an equally good friend, died 4 years ago.

A very young 74, gsoh, can paint and does many other crafts, great at alterations to clothes (trousers for my short little legs especially), practical, pragmatic, intelligent, enquiring, now tells me as much about computer/tablet use as I taught her ten years ago, happy about changing the USB sockets in her tablets after I showed her how, and gave her some tools she was missing from my duplicates . . .

Gonna really miss that lady, daily emails not quite the same! Doubt that I will find another like her.

Tomorrow is precious, don't ruin it by fouling up today.

Sorry biker.

Hug


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

I was once told that getting old isn’t for sissies. I only thought they meant physical ailments, I never expected it to be because you outlive friends and family. Undecided

My condolences.

Sorry for your loss. Old age seems largely about losses.

Had to go see his mom... Took her some B+W pics I took of him years back....she showed me some she had already - kinda funny - the pics she had were also some I had taken years back.... I gotta go though my collection and find more for her....

A very nice gesture.

My condolences to you and your friend's family.

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF
