That things must pass…
George Harrison was insightful and I'm sure that he kept those words in mind as he faded into the night. As I too will do and I write as this is, perhaps, the hardest thing that I have do say in the space that we call Phun. My time draws near the end.
A few weeks ago, my doctor ran a few test and we discovered the cancer in my pancreas, This will do me in anytime in the next three to six months. With treatment, I may stick around as long as a year to a year and a half. I has to choose between fast and slow. It was a hard one to make because one offers little time while allowing me to fully enjoy it. The latter gives me more time but feeling sick as a dog most of the time.
I chose to stay around.
My decision was not based on fighting a "noble battle". Heck, no one beats death. Furthermore, there is nothing noble about fighting a disease. I want to stay around so that I can share a part of my life with a group of people that I've had the honour of meeting through this forum.
In this thread, I'll write about the ladies in my life that came and went. How they formed me into the dude that exists today. Some of these experience were great while others not so much.
Why here? Why Phun? Easy answer. I've been invisible for almost all of my life. I'm the guy who came up with great ideas but never got credit for their success. I'm the 'brother-like" guy in the bar while the chicks went after the "quarterback" types. I was the good shoulder to cry on but not attractive enough to be considered a sexy. Solid performer but never notices. Less than a Regular Joe.
That is until I registered with Phun and started posting. You all because friends and I'd like to repay. So I'll start posting my stories as long as I have strength. Please keep in mind that I intended to post a final 'farewell' when posting is becomes too much of a challenge.
