Not my usual kind of subject. I depict here the kind of places my wife and I lived in for many years. Broken down places. But we didn't even notice. I remember in 1971, just out of the Marine Corps with my wife and daughter, not yet 2. My parents would not have helped--I didn't ask. Linda's parents would have helped if they could. We lived that first summer on the sweet corn my non-union brick-layer boss would give us.

Looking back, it's the best way to start out. In all the world we were entirely alone.

Thanks, Rick.

Now, at age 64, it's time to light up another cigarette. My grandfather lived to 93 smoking from age 12. Hmm...

Science is sometimes propaganda.

Sorry, took this from a really nice image of yours that I didn't think I should comment on. It's a fine image, actually, that can be taken--as I first did--as a positive theme.

Think I'll light up another one myself. One of these days the images in my faves may make me quit. Until then, Cheers? :smoking:
