I have an addictive personality

I suppose I should be a more in-the-closet kinda guy in today’s politically correct world, but I can’t help myself. I am who I am. I’ve struggled with this situation over and over again, and some days I think I should just admit that things will always be this way.

It is said that one of the first steps to recovery is admitting your problem, but I’m just not sure I want to recover.

Where Mongo balks at recovery.

And please don’t talk about how Bugs are the new age cure. That’s just too disgusting for words!

    I enjoyed your video of the “Kitty Pron”, Mongo. And the longer I am on this website (and Lex’s) I am learning more about Navy aviation.

    Always wondered about the pilot’s salute before the catapult let loose – that is the pilot saying the checklist (mainly free movement of the control surfaces – apparently read by one of the flight personnel?) – all is OK?

    As to your addiction I am afraid I too have an addictive personality – ie, “if one is good – two must be better”.

    Then I am reminded of Clint Eastwood’s Dirty Harry character’s admonition, “It’s important that a man know his limitations 😉

    Fortunately for us there are worse addictions than ours 😉

    To Bill’s I can add an alleged quote from Mike Hailwood, the legend of motorcycle racing and hero of my youth: “There are three things to remember about riding a motorcycle; 1. Always be aware of your limitations. 2. Everybody falls off. 3. Everybody falls off.

    Hogday – that sounds like a variation of “There are 2 kinds of motorcycle riders: Those who have fallen, and those who are going to fall”

    Dr. Jerry White, was the Director of NASA’s Gemini Program was talking about an event with Gus Grissom talking with some college students, mainly “Q&A”. One student stands up and asks, “When you are sitting up in the capsule awaiting lift-off, are you afraid?” Grissom waits a moment and then begins. “You are sitting at the top of a guided missile, built by the lowest bidder. If you’re not afraid, you don’t have an accurate assessment of the situation.” By the way, Gus Grissom died in a test capsule fire, filled with pure oxygen and no explosive bolts. Fear is normal, the important thing is what you choose to do with it.

    Note: Momma Nature has been a bit of hag in South Jersey, knocked out since Saturday.
