    I recently noticed that my left ear has gotten almost a full centimeter longer than my right one. This must have happened just within the last few months. Of course, I know that the cartilage in the ears, nose and chin grows as we age, but I wasn't expecting one ear to grow faster than the other! I suppose if it gets any bigger, I can always get a job in a sideshow.

    We have it here in PA, too !

    My dad used to joke that he built the enclosed porch for just that purpose - he called it "The Goodbye Patio"...

    Those certainly weren't good odds to say the least. My worst was with two guys who grabbed me from behind and I managed to throw the one guy off on the ground and I guess I was so incensed and wasn't even thinking that I then started running after the second one who took off and managed to get away. Telling my wife afterwards, she thought I was crazy, although I'm kind of glad I wasn't able to catch the guy as angry as I was.

    The strangest thing was I was so obviously full of adrenaline, I didn't even notice the fact at first that the first guy had cut the back of my upper arm open once I started to resist. Only after I was able to recompose myself did I realize the stream of blood running down my forearm and finally feeling the pain. The way they attacked me and the fact they didn't actually try to take anything, I still think to this day it wasn't a mugging, but they initially thought I was someone else. But I still have the unsightly souvenir from my elbow to halfway up my triceps, which likely could have been minimized with the stitches I never got.

    I weigh less now than I did when I got married (47 yrs ago). Of course I wasn't diabetic back then and could actually eat tasty stuff.

    I'm the sort of the reverse...I weigh a lot more now, but the same with diabetes.
