Dave: I finally found your message. So you are a Baby Boomer also. lol Nothing wrong with that I'm just glad you made it home safe. That's all that matters, right?? As I said in my last message, I'd like to talk to you more and get to know what an Army Life is like. That is interesting to me. I did talk about my divorce, but forget that lets start fresh. I've always had a life in business and accounting but there was always something missing from my life. When I asked to apply for the Navy; I was too old. How humiliating. I always loved the water and the deep blue sea. But I missed my chance... Oh well at least I tried!!! You can't blame a girl for that!! Anyway, I am honoured to have you as a friend, in the army, or retired from it - no matter. Your stories must be fantastic. If you didn't mind, I love to capture some of them on paper. I'm retired at 57 and do a lot of stories for selling. But if you didn't want any published; I would totally understand. I have been with this SITE for several years now and my opinions pop up here and there whenever there is an interesting topic. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to chat - I'm here. I'm never too busy for a friend. I mean that.
Retired Masterchief: I got a message that you wanted to chat. So I'm here to chat. I am in the midst of planning a move and selling my house. Too much is going on in this neibourhood and I have to get away. It is a long story. I think I have over stayed my "welcome" here and need a change. I am divorced and have been for quite a few years now. I'll be living not too far from Orillia where I live now; and it will be quiet and peaceful - exactly what a writer needs. Low maintainance as well. I was thinking of a townhouse or a house that doesn't have a lot of gardens like mine does. However, I would like to hear from you in a message to my page or profile, whatever. And we can chat sometime. If that is O.K. with you. Hope to hear from you soon.
Retired Masterchief: Are your retiring from the War in Iraq? I'm just curious. We don't often get to talk to people that served over there. Not much is mentioned in the news. Articles are few and far between. But I just thought I'd introduce myself.
