Happy New Year - and an Anniversary
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL
Today is a quite important anniversary for She Who Must BE Obeyed (S.W.M.B.O.) and I. It is 30 years since we gave up smoking.
Yes, it was 30 years ago yesterday that we stubbed out our last "fags" into the ashtray. It wasn't easy as we'd both smoked on and off since we were teenagers. But coming out to California, where the lifestyle was so much healthier we decided it was time to pack it in. A few years later pressure all around made it difficult to smoke anywhere it seemed, but we were already off the weed, by then. So 30 years ago we became two of the non-smokers around. It was the best day's work we ever did.
