The Jungles Of Viet Nam

When I was in the rotting, humid jungles of Viet Nam, I had a dailie reminder of what the real world was. Insects, snakes, wet clothes, and the viet cong that were all over.

Captured and the pow camp was the real world- for a time.

What keep me from going nuts was the real world - home - that was in the brain.

Take blessings in what u have.

The real world u experience is not the real world for others.

Live life and live it well.

There is a whole world in front of u.

I sincerely hope you live your remaining days with happiness and contentment.

It's good to see you too. I've been spending a lot of time reading. I also have my days and nights mixed up. I love the peace & stillness of the night. Everything is good. I count my Blessings everyday now for my needs being met. My daughter's cancer is in remission and my grandchildren give me joy. How are you doing?
