Today, I achieved a short term goal, one that turned long term. I made my bed as it were. (Referring to the book by Admiral William H. McRaven, retired ). I stepped on the scales this morning and behold and lo, 179.0 pounds. Been twenty years since I've weighed that amount. If my arm was longer, I'd reach over and pat myself on the back and whisper, good boy. What I mean by I started something, is I posted an article in "Reading and Writing" that probably should have been posted elsewhere, giving rise to a string of articles and comments that that maybe didn't go in the reading and writing section. I guess I knew better but new folks on the forum didn't. Sometime I question my own judgement and sometime I fail as when Joe called me out on my comment in the Religion Forum. I think we best return Reading & Writing to the proper status it held before I debased it. Apologies to all.
