1,437 steps to 440 feet above the water...couldn't have done this 6 years and 135 pounds ago. I must still not look even 225 pounds, as the girl guessed my jump suit size too small the first two tries.Yep, this is me with Sammy (now 7) about 6 years ago.
At the end of the day Dianna and I were in a MacDonald's during rush hour when three n'er-do-wells sauntered in, stole all the straws, and casually walked out. Ever the justice-minded, I hollered at them, but they ignored me. I told the clerk, "Those guys just stole all your straws." She gave me a look that said, "I'm waiting on customers; what can I do?"
So the old gimp headed after them, jogging down the busy street on shredded knees still aching from the bridge climb. I overtook the miscreants, grabbed the straws, and said, "I'll take those, thank you." What a man.
Dianna was amused.
