I've mentioned a few things that I never came back and resolved.

1. Bob's infection/hernia. His medication has run its course and things are greatly improved, so Bob is going with the "it's not really a hernia" assumption. I hope he's right.

2. body odor. I researched and found that it can be caused by a magnesium deficiency, so I'm eating a banana every day. Ewww yuck! But it does seem to be helping, so I guess that's a good thing.

Well, that may actually be it.

On another note, I've searched before, but this time actually found some people I used to know. I'm now Facebook friends with people from my church in San Antonio (from when I was 11 and 15), and even someone from 4th grade, when I was in government school in Bulverde. Now that was a good find, because he is actually friends with a lot of people from our class, so maybe today I'll try to connect with a few more. I'm not sure why it's important to "keep in touch" but it does feel nice to know there are people in the world who would relate to me as something other than what I appear now. Of course, it is who I was that makes me who I am...

Sorry for having all the extra short blog posts lately, but I figure it's better than nothing.

No need to apologize for short posts. I think I actually prefer reading a string of short ones than the occasional long one. :-)

(Though I'm guilty of the latter...)

Glad to hear Bob's doing okay, and Marline and I have promised each other never to post about each other's hernias, should we ever have them. :-)

RE: reconnecting

Over the past 10 years, I've "reconnected" with various friends, through classmates.com, MySpace, Facebook, Google searches, and even Flickr. Each time, it feels really cool when you first bump into someone from the past, but almost never has it turned into an actual continuing relationship.

Mostly because we both realize the *only* thing we have in common is that we once knew each other.

The only exception is Wesley. A few years ago, his wife was googling his name and came across one of my poems on my website. Since then, Wesley and I have been in occasional contact.

Wil, you probably won't post about body odor, either. :-D Oh, well. This blog is my brain dump.

I'm not expecting any great friendships to blossom. But as I don't have a "hometown" to visit, or a high school reunion to look forward to, Facebook is as good as it gets for reminiscing. Whether these re-connections end up being openings or closures, I'm okay with it.
