Well Mike, hope you heal up fast. Looks like you won't be making the reunion. I'm starting to have my doubts too, but still trying.

Curmudgery is gender specific, in that I have never known a female curmudgeon. Many men aspire to that self-appointed calling and many men fail. It is truly an art-form, to be able to tell people to go to hell and have them ask for directions.

Good morning troops, I hope all is well with my brother cavalrymen. Just popped in to say Hi. Had surgery last Fridday so it's difcult to sit at the desk. Stay well and safe.

Newest member ( William Buck) states he is a curmudgeon. That's why I keep the dictionary close by, had to look this word up. Curmudgeon: An ill tempered person full of resentment and stubborn notions.

Now I know what I am, and one or two of you fellows.
