    Tradd does not have my permission to do cave diving. Ever.

    i worry about her like a mom. The scuba diving is bad enough.

    Back in the late eighties, they made a big effort to get officers into EOD. But reflecting on the number of electrical shocks I have received doing home maintenance tasks, I thought it prudent to decline.

    As a young man, I joined Mensa as a way to meet women. I was unsuccessful.
    In my last fling before meeting DH , I had a short lived but fun junket with an adorably cute, smart, and nice boyfriend. He later met someone who was cute, smart, and nice in
    Mensa. They are still together decades later.

    I was not cute, smart, or nice enough for him, and I say that sincerely, no snark.

    Two claims to fame: I once killed (two witnesses) a fly middair with a dishtowel snap. I also hit a bullseye shooting a bow and arrow blindfolded. (about 8 witnesses)
    One other....my dad was one of the original LE officers searching for DB Cooper....he had to leave Thanksgiving dinner to go out.
    My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start. So far today, I have finished two bags of M&Ms and a chocolate cake. I feel better already!

    No one ever believes me, Iris.....but I do have witnesses!

    Also, I used to be a sportswriter...that's the one that usually surprises people the most.

    My coworker’s parents were not happy that her boyfriend got her into diving let alone cave diving. She was a only child with severe asthma.

    As befits my usually-beige personality, one of my biggest claims to fame is that I once discovered a bug in Microsoft Excel.

    It's never too late! (Wearing my Mensa t-shirt, waving from the Seattle Eastside...)
