Wow, only a year huh? Seems like forever since we seen you down here! Kinda reminds me of the Song Copperhead Rd. Ya know,
"Cody ran sawdust in a big white eagle, only come south about once every couple yrs! I knew something wasn't right when I heard Libby say when the Dr.s came around in the middle of the night!"

Cody,

The older I get, the less I trust Docs.  Probably cuz I have kids their age.  However, I'm glad yours was wrong as I hope to pick your brain for a long time.  Wink

Funny how different our outlook on life and what is / isn't important changes, eh?

Hey Cody, Congratulations!

Thanks for having the courage to be upfront about the smoking bit.  It was seeing the personal testimony of a dear lady about 10 years ago that gave me the encouragement to finally quit smoking.  It was and still is tough.  But your story reinforces my resolve.

Be strong, enjoy each day.

Cody I wish you many many more miles. Enjoy everyone of them. We only get about 25,000 revolutions on this dirt ball. I read a post on another forum of a gentleman that put 1,500 marbles in a jar when he was fifty. Each marble represented the Saturdays he had left. Every Saturday he would take a marble out of the jar and he posted because he had removed the last one.

Every Saturday to me is a celebration for I have had three heart attacks. All the men on my mothers side of the family died young from them. It's amazing what they can do for your survival these days. It sounds like you've taken charge of your life and should have many marbles left in your jar.

Congratulations, Cody! It's a great to have you around. Though we've never met, I'll always remember you as the first busnut I actually communicated with; you gave me a warm welcome in the chat room when I joined the forum and helped me feel like a part of this excellent community.

I have some familiarity with beating the odds. My mother suffered a heart attack 2 1/2 years ago and just keeps feeling better. She's 89. Dad recovered fully from lung cancer some 15 years ago (it cured him of smoking, too). He's just 3 weeks younger that mom. Both remain active and look forward to 90 in the fall.

I spend most of my time here just lurking and learning, but I hope you are enjoying the ride as much as we are enjoying having you!

Congrats Cody! Smiley  You know you can't leave until your bus is "done".  Then again, a bus is never done so you just can't go!  Hope to read your posts for years to come!
