Singing

And Elaine, when I was where you are, I thought one year was forever and a day away. Not so. I can't believe how quickly time flies by through clear eyes. And lungs.

I realized - I mean truly REAL-ized that I could fill my lungs more than I could ever have done before. I felt like I filled them to ca...

<t>I just re-read your first post and am smiling. Why? Because *I* was in the same boat. All of us were. And it's HISTORY. Look at the difference... the improvement you've made. This is it, sunny. Your final quit. You're and ex-smoker! Congratulations. <br/> <br/> Farnk <br/> 1 year 5 days</t>

Pasting your post from Word

WOW, Marty! I remember carriage returns on a typewriter. I was wondering if you were going to say "waiting for the horse & carriage to return." There's actually a neighbor of mine (in her late 90s) who can tell stories of "those days."
