Connie (Mrs. WebSlave)

Well, there is a small silver lining in this HUGE cloud I have been living in lately. Lost weight from eating sparsely, and getting back into working outside in the yard. Down to 132.6 lbs now. Not feeling much like the decrepit old man I felt I was being transformed into by circumstances.

Dude, the old ladies on the meat market are gonna chase you! I hope you're a fast runner.
 
:rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

Not to worry. I am NOT going to date someone who looks like my grandmother or my Aunt Edna. :rofl:

To be honest, I have been checking out the internet dating sites, and to be blunt, there is slim pickings there.

But I am fully prepared to live the rest of my life alone, if it comes to that.

Connie would insist that I be HAPPY with someone new. Matter of fact, before she died, she said to me that she needs to find me a girl friend to be with me after she died. That is just like her. Always concerned and worried about my welfare even though she was in dire straights herself.
 
Ah, well. It was 2 years ago today that Connie got the diagnosis of stage 4 metastatic ovarian cancer.

Been working out on the property a lot clearing the underbrush and small trees to open up the woods some. Been using the wood chipper on the tractor to turn all those small trees, vines, and brush piles into little wood chips. Interestingly enough, while I was out there today I was carrying an armload of branches and roots I had cut off of some of the trees to the chipper when I moved to readjust the weight distribution. I suddenly felt a very sharp pain in my left chest. First thing that went through my mind was "well I guess my time here on Earth is done. About time..." I didn't expect that thought. But in any event, just turned out to be a sharp root jabbing me in the chest, so I am still here. :shrug01:

As for the internet dating stuff.... I am a complete flop at it. No closer to finding someone than I was when I started. Have yet to have any real offers to meet anyone in person. Not unless I want to send them money for airfare or gasoline. So it looks like that is a complete bust. Being 73 years old is certainly putting me behind the eight ball. That and I guess I just am not anyone's heart throb. Oh well..........
 
I went to doctors last week. Weight was 208 on a 6'3" frame. Doctor acted like I was 300 pounds. My best friend is female and if wife passed I would never get remarried but I'd be happy with my buddy going to movie or zoo and having lunches and dinners. I'm retiring in August. Planning to get a 2 or 3 day job at Ace Hardware or maybe mowing just a few small yards in neighborhood. I hope you get everything sorted in your new life Rich!
 
Thanks, but I really wouldn't exactly call this a "life".........

Just to show you the semi local beauties that like me...... :ack2:

Am I being shallow by not looking for some inner beauty?
