Hello. I am new. Well, besides displaying this penchant for stating the obvious, I also must admit to a certain tredpidation in having done so, because of the contradictions inherent in point of view. To be thruthful, I must admit I have known myself for quite some time now.

I am a gardener, which I must advise is simply my attempt at striving for that which will impress to a degree slightly greater than were I to reveal my actual puropse in life, which is as a beast of burden. I dig. As I dig, and in order to distract myself from the realization that the years of toil have reduced my fingers to stubs and crumpled my vertebret like a cheap paper accordian, I allow my thoughts to wander. Which they do, and as a few sluggish neurons fire away, I convince myself that what transpires as a result resembles sentience to the degree I feel more or less compelled to report my findings.

And this, of course, explains why I am here.

To make yourself feel 40 years older, you didn't have to go through years of pain and suffering...you just could've done what I did...

Get in a car crash, spend 9 days in a coma, and wake up with 11 broken bones...

Although with your way, I assume you got more fresh air...:2wave:

I am still learning this forum - but had to welcome you ahead of my own introduction because of the gardening thing.

I have been the beast of burden, but lately, I've drafted my spouse to do those things. Soon I will have broken him down, and he can go back to the sofa.
