Full of Complex Carbohydrates and MicroNutrients

I am a novelty to many (and I'm fine with that).
I have a very silly sense of humor usually riddled with malapropisms (and I'm fine with that, too).
I ask too many questions of Life and I expect all the answers.
I trust people too easily when I shouldn't; however, I respect everyone regardless…unless they do something to make me think twice.
I don't cheat. I am tactful yet will give the truth up front (and never mean to hurt anyone's feelings with it).
I like to help the people who have helped me, and even those who have not.
I never forget... but sometimes I misplace things.
I never lose hope.
I am awesomely blessed for the people who have come into my life, and I am blessed for the people who have left because I realize I didn't need them anyway.
I honestly feel that laughter is the best medicine you can have.
I believe in being strong when everything else seems to be going wrong.
I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles. In other words, I'm human, and definitely not perfect.
But tomorrow is another day, and there's so much cheese to be had...

'Twas Seven Years Ago Today...

This short, shy, skinny guy I used to know way back in middle school (but had not seen since in like 30 years) gets in touch with me, starts a nice correspondence that continues for a couple years, and eventually includes meeting up with me in person (he'd grown a bit and filled out nicely, and was not so shy any more).  

One day in early November 2004, he takes me to Disneyland in sunny Southern California, and on bended knee in front of Walt and Mickey (well, their statue likenesses, that is), asks me to marry him.

Who'da thunk my life would have turned out like this. (No complaints!)
Kooky to the end - and proud of it.
By the way - this is the guy (often referred to here as "Poopy") who is responsible for giving me the byline of my blog here - "Growing older is mandatory. Growing up is optional." Yup, he's a keeper. 

Happy Anniversary, Mark. Thanks for all the fun and adventures together... I love you!
