Thanks Mike, I know you can understand. Being on medicare, joining AARP, trips to the senior center, and every once in awhile the doctor says; "well, we got a little problem here". But Mike, the truth is, as buffs, we sure were around during the right time.

  "Manhattan",  I think I asked the nurse for a date. But when it was over, I could see the nurse was a guy, not a gal.

  Truth is that medicine has really come a long way. "Bxboros" surgery was really pretty serious, but the doctors at Yale, New Haven, Ct really know their stuff. When my eye surgery was over, I could see again. I guess years ago, the end result would be just going blind. I couldn't see anything out of my right eye just a few days ago.

  I hope that Grumpy will do okay too. And of course we will all pray for Capt Vigiano who is dealing with that cancer.

  There are members on here still paying a physical price after 9/11. They battle medical issues on a daily basis. "69Mets" is one such example. He has some good days, some bad days. Even some bad weeks or bad months. But he's happy to be alive.

  I tell these stories because these are good people. Most of us never even met these individuals, but we can consider them our friends. At our Get Together last year, one member joined us who had some difficulty getting around. But he didn't let that stop him. I'm sure it wasn't easy for "svd385", but it sure was good to see him. He certainly put a lot of effort into being a part of it.

  And young guys like "Irish" who I met last year. He made the trip all the way from Ireland to see the FDNY and meet up with a few members. If you ask me, he's really top shelf.
So Bill, where are you and the nurse going on your date, Mickey D's?

I might be old, dented up and broken but I refuse to grow up ... we of the medicare age group got to see all the cool bands and did all of our dumb stuff before the internet .... some mistakes were just too much fun to be done only once,  ;D  ;)

Here's a little "Insider News" that might interest you regarding our bosses on this site (Tbendick and Truck 4).

  Did you know that both celebrate their birthdays on the same day, August 9th.

  But there's more. Both have two young daughters and both Daddy's are expecting number 2 in August. But this time, both boys.

Great news ... now just avoid driving area's where there are large 'pot holes' with the wives in the car ... afterall, you don't want to chance shaking the nut;s off of them.  ;)  ::)  :)

News Flash regarding site member "fdce54", aka Frank D. "Fdce54" is reported to have gone to sleep last night and he was 60 years old. This morning when he woke up somehow he turned 61. Frank D only asked for many happy birthday wishes from members of this site instead of any gifts.

And not only is he counting the years for his birthdays, but he is also counting the days to his retirement. At last count it was 169 days to go. Frank has spent about 40 years working for Con Ed starting out in the exclusive South Bronx and later moving up  to supervisor in Westchester County.

Those of us who know Frank know that he is really a great guy. HAPPY BIRTHDAY Frank.
