How old???

on the lam

Recommended Posts

I remember filling barrels with rocks to save a friend’s house from the effect of Hurricane Agnes on the Port Bay sandbar; seeing a coal boat coming into Sodus and the coal trestle; the smell of dead alewives all along the shoreline; wooden nickels from the Wolcott Sesquicentennial; catching an eel while bass fishing of the Chimneys; seeing a ship go through the Eisenhower lock; and fishing the 1st ESLO derby with my brother. My Dad threw me off the dock at Port Bay when I was 3 years old and then got me out with a fishing pole which I haven’t let go of yet. Next month, I'll have seen 769 full moons.

(769x28)/365 = 59

62 years Here.

Where did the years go.still act 30.Grew up a hot rodder as a kid.Three 55 chevy's that I put 327's in(one with six single barrel stromberg carbs) A 62 Impala dual quad 409,and a 63 Ford Galaxy with a bored and stroked out 390.Lot's of other fun cars.

Why the hell didn't I keep all of them,I could have retired a long time ago.I go crazy when I watch the Barret -Jackson auctions

Got into boats at 23 years old,and that sickness is just as bad.That's it no more boats or fishing tackle.(well,maybe a little more tackle).Scratch that I just bought a radar,but that's it no more.

My kids will have fun getting rid of all the stuff after I'm gone.
