    Try 2 Impress

    Not me!  I don't brag where things don't need being bragged. It is not my intention to impress anyone.  If I impress in a positive way, then I'll accept that other than that, I don't try to impress anyone.

    Impressed Are You?

    Well, gee thanks world. I'm just being me. Thank you for seeing something in me that I'm blinded to. I'll never know why you all have to live far away either. As I keep saying: DAMN the oceans!

    Been there, done that.
