just for today

Hellow Group(this is a homage to a person called ghoulardi a late night carater who hosted movies in the 60’s)every day that I wake-up is a blessing,especially after what I went through in the seventies after I got out of the USAF,I got sick with what I thought was a bad cold and i was congested,turns out I was a lot sicker that I thought.I had fluid on the heart,this is a infection that affects the sac around the heart,it fills with fluid and has to be removed and treated with anti-biotics or the person may die.I almost did.I was given a 20/80 chance of survival the 20 being for me.It was one of the most scariest times of my life,here I was 23 years old and wondering if I would see 24.after a month and a half stay in the hospital,I was able to leave but had to have frequent check ups and was not allowed to work full time I was told no more that 20 hours a week.The good side was that I survived,My marriage at the time did not.By 1978 I was divorced and liveing alone in Sacramento Ca.So I decided to move back to Cleveland Ohio.I’m Glad that I did for in sept of 1979 I meet Celestine.The way I meet here was through a raod dispatcher for the Local AAA club.”Mike I know a great person that you need to meet”At first I was a little aprehensive but nothing ventured nothing gained,so I meet Celestine in Sept of’79.By March of 1980 we got married,and have been since.

  2. Ghoulardi, it turns out, was played by the father of Paul Thomas Anderson, director of \”There Will Be Blood,\” among others.Thanks for the comments. I think every old fashioned Gent has a reason to be unnerved by the rapid changes in technology. Why, just now I remembered that I have been through nearly four ipods in my life, and the technology has been around for only 7 years.And congrats on the high scoring. EtG
