Almost forgot the second part of your post. Feeling about as good as I ever have which is awesome seeing I'm staring down the barrel of the big 40 in less than a year. Spent most of my training this year focusing on passing the Army PT test, and Army medic school. Survived medic school at my advanced age, though I re-injured my craptastic shoulders and kicked ass on the PT in pushups and sitsups but missed run by 12 seconds. Which can be attributed to the fact I weigh 255 and like to lift a whole lot more than run.

As for life in general I feel truly blessed, so you certainly won't hear me whining. I'm fulfilling my dream of becoming a paramedic and getting paid some money to do it through the G.I. Bill.Two healthy, bright kids who do well socially, and the list could go on. I like most, often forget how much I have but all it takes for me lately is some time on an ALS ambulance in New York city and seeing how people treat each other , the effects of poverty and apathy, and how little some have to hammer home the wealth of possessions and opportunity that my life has afforded me.
