The end of the decade in Ramble On Posted January 5, 2010 I had to think about it a bit because so much has happen in my life during this decade I wanted to put the timeline together as best as I could. Y2K pfft uneventful, then September 11, 2001 the world pretty much change for ever. The next 3 years were actually great years for me. I was working at a satellite facility 7 miles from home and had no managers breathing down my neck, I bought my first Harley and brought my son to Disney world for the first time, there was plenty of OT to be had if you wanted it and the economy was doing pret ty well at the time. Then things slowly began to change profoundly like a bad dream. First there was a falling out with management and they closed the satellite facility and I had to drive across town to the main garage. Then May 05 I was first diagnosed with stage one colon cancer then just getting back to work and August 29, 2005 Hurricane Katrina nearly destroyed my Home and town. Took almost 2 years for the insurance co to settle up and don't get me started on FEMA. Then the wife lost her mind and walked out and divorced me after being together for 28 years. In the middle of all this chaos I had a recurrence and was diagnosed with stage two colon cancer except that it had metastized to my liver. Have to tell you chemo is hell on earth. After 2 ct scans all is clear and I will be going this week for the 3rd so that part is looking good but the chemo is still giving me troubles and I finished my tratments 3rd week of October. With all that said don't know how this decade could be worse?
