    Back after a long, long time

    Hi Guys,

    My apologize for the long disappearance. Work and family has kept me busy (all the right reasons I guess). I am well and doing good. Hopefully I shall remain connected as I did before.

    Cheers!...on the rocks!!

    ^ Welcome back. Please share some raunchy stories from your trip to the middle-east. For example, had 2 kilogram of dates in summer heat watching bikini babes in Jumeirah beach. :D

    Somehow, I cannot imagine the good Captain as becoming a fat dirty old man.

    Welcome back Sir!
    “You don’t even have to be convicted of a crime to lose your job in this constitutional republic if the Senate determines that your conduct as a public official is clearly out of bounds in your role… because impeachment is not about punishment. Impeachment is about cleansing the office. Impeachment is about restoring honor and integrity to the office.”
    ~ Lindsey Graham

    Oracle, I am not overseeing the middle-east region since the last 3 years. Currently, I have the lovely South East Asian countries as my travel zone.

    Cheers!...on the rocks!!

    Good days and bad. New meds are helping, keeping my episodes down to a minimum, to the point I can recognize when they're coming and lay down to be smothered by the dogs. Not fun when you end up with dog slob on your face.

    Been fishing a lot. Last summer I went down Georgia, US for a friend's daughter's wedding. Decided right there and then to do a fishing tour all over the Southern US. The BASS PRO SHOP salesman must have seen me coming. Came out of there with $1000+ worth of gear since I didn't bring anything with me but some clothes and the dogs.

    I want to say I'm turning into a fat dirty old man but I'm a cheap bastard. High blood pressure meds are expensive. Calisthenics and dieting are free. And I don't see enough young ladies in bikinis, mainly because they don't hang out where the fish are. Who knew that musquittos and bikinis don't mix.

    Nothing that a few thousand gallons of DDT and a hundred truckloads of sand couldn't fix. Justin would likely bring you up on eco-disaster charges, but there's an off-chance you'd get to see some young ladies in bikinis for a few weeks in the mean-time.

    Good and dirty mix well. Women dig that. :-)

    One question, at what age is a man normally considered to be old, or started to grow old?

    There is no old or young, just alive or not ; )

    ^ It should be alive and kicking. For example, the Colonel. He goes fishing, he gets fish. Later in the evening he heads for the bar. Orders scotch, schools everybody, and there too he gets his choice of fish. For some like the Colonel, it rains fish. No if and buts. It is, as if, I'm stuck in a time-wrap in a remote desert. Nothing for miles. Eyes sore. Finally, when I come across that patch of much needed greenery, it turns out to be cactus. :D

    There are three stages in a typical man's life:

    1. stud
    2. dud
    3. thud


    Some men alternate back and forth between these three stages with varying degrees of success.

    Some men even manage to go "thud" and come back from it (via CPR, defibrillation, autoresuscitation, etc.)

    I've personally gone "thud" (heart failure) and now I'm back to being a "dud". I'll be grateful for at least 10-15 more years of "dud".

    The Colonel is definitely a "stud".

    You've made me sad, now.

    I don't have any complications, if anything, I am as horny as ever.

    What stage is dud? Explain please. What happens when a person is dud?

    And the secret to the Colonel being a 'stud' is 'Celine Dion'. How can you forget that?
