Slowly but surely I'm trying to feel like my old self. Unfortunately, one of the problems with being retired is that you have way too much time to think about the past and lost friends.
That thinking got the best of me last year, and I ended up a guest of the Canyon County Detention Hotel for two weeks. Not one of my finer moments.
The VA takes its sweet time to get vets into the proper counseling they need and it's no wonder 24 kill themselves each day. Thankfully I had a great judge and I got the help I needed...the Assistant DA, nicknamed "The Ice Queen", wanted 10 years; I got counseling and probation.
Now I'm concentrating on family and our 1976 Monaco motorhome, to tow the 1976 CJ-5. It's getting a new 360 powerplant that's being built as I type. I'm also swapping out the Holley 2245 2BBL for a correct 1976 Thermo-Quad 4BBL. Should wake it up a bit.
Next year I'm planning a trip to Arlington, to say goodbye to friends, close that chapter of my life, & hopefully get some closure.
