...March = 25th anniversary of my 2nd OHS

 

...June = 20 years since my HS graduation

 

...July = 148K miles on my '72 MC

 

...September = My 9th "major" & well-documented road trip, my 12th "major" road trip overall

 

...September = My last birthday of my 30s

 

...November = 35th anniversary of my original OHS

Hey Becky,

ADDITIONAL 2012 SNAPSHOTS

 

 

...CARDIAC REHAB:

I started this the same day I returned to work, 01/06/2012 (the 9th anniversary of my 3rd open heart surgery). So far, I like CR. The staff at the center seemed impressed with what I accomplished just the 1st day; it seems to be a nice stress reliever, definitely needed due to work issues.

 

 

...BOARD & GROUP:

As owner, I'm renewing efforts to keep 1 Monte Carlo-specific board (3rd generation) & 1 MC-specific group (6th gen) alive....

 

 

 

...WRITINGS:

 

I will continue w/Motor Gnomes...

http://www.motorgnomes.com/

 

...and my Route 66 story, as well as a few other "projects"!

That'd be nice ... and thank you! It's good to finally start feeling energy to DO things! Now, to find a new job would be awesome...LOL!
