    Physically, I am pretty much the human equivalent of my boat - held together with duct tape (stitches) and with some pretty nasty scars and other surface damage, had engine rebuilds, got some new wiring (literally), had some bad plumbing that had to be repaired, and still have various and sundry items and systems that just don't work like they used to (let's not go there). The carpeting and my hair are both getting pretty thin. It's getting tougher to get either one of us started in the morning, and even shifting into gear is becoming a problem. We even both have some high-dollar aftermarket electronics installed. Push either one of us too hard and we're likely to be down for several days. You'll most often find us resting on our bunks - trailer bunks for one and bunk beds for the other. Neither one of us smells all that good either.

    And today I'm another year older....................

    Happy Birthday Eric. As I read your statement it sounded just like me. A wreck looking for a junk yard.:smile2:
