Heh heh, I guess so...I love it (NOT) when folks say "Geeze, you a diabetic?
You don't LOOK like one!" EEEEEEKKKKK!! Oh, man, I don't even ask what we're
supposed to look like....!

You and me both re: the busy life. But to be honest, I refuse to be 'sick' I
don't lay down and darken my rooms when I get a slight headache, I live and
carry on almost to spite the naysayer. Incidentally, the family nickname for
him is "Wimp-ston"...No joke.
Age is just a number, and mine is unlisted. :-)
