    Jon,

    Who here has kids? I know myself, I do not have any. Or that I know
    of. Haha. Kids are so good though, they bring their childlike personality out and gives me a smile when I see them.

    Not me. With having chicken pox at the age of 20, then working around
    nasty solvents for almost 20 years, I got my wings clipped in 2003. But,
    with the way the world is nowadays, and how ornery kids are, I'm glad I
    don't have any.

    I never had kids. I didn't get married until I was 43, but never dreamed
    I'd be a widower at 47.

    I had the chicken pox at 20 (I couldn't get it as a child), which put me
    in the hospital for a week (they thought I was going into encephalitis),
    and out of work at Burger King, and out of college at the University Of Arkansas At Little Rock for 2 months (by order of the Health Department)... then after working around nasty solvents like M.E.K. (methyl-ethyl-ketone)
    in silkscreen printing for nearly 20 years...as my late wife quipped "They wouldn't spay me, so he volunteered to get neutered". So, I'm "shooting blanks". <G>

    I don't mind kids if they are "well behaved", but those seem so few and
    far between anymore. A former high school classmate from 40 years ago, who
    I've hooked up with as friends (we likely will stay that way), is a
    divorcee, because of abuse. In short, I've had to be a shoulder to cry
    on for her lately...because there are other gory details, but I'll spare
    them from the echo.
