The Stink Eye

What is with the "Stink Eye" that I get from people over fifty? I'm forty and disabled with RSDS-CRPS going on ten years now. Because of my disability my knees and hips are about shot and I walk with a cane. Why is it when I park in a handicap parking spot, older people give me the dirty look I've dubbed "The Stink Eye"? Am I too young to park there, in their minds? I mean really, in this day and age we have so many disabled young veterans coming home from the wars! I'd hate to think of this happening to our heroes that have sacrificed so much for us all. I've had people approach me and give me grief over where I've parked! I have my placard and if you see me move around I'm obviously disabled. So what is that? I'd love to know. I'm at the point now, when someone gives me crap about it, I ask them which end of my cane they'd like rammed up their rear end. Talk about nerve. Do they really think I'm enjoying my long slow painful life? I'm just glad I have a great wife and all my fur babies to help me through it all. What are your thoughts on this subject? Don't be shy!

We've all either been asked, or asked ourselves what book we would choose to bring with us if stranded on a dessert island. That's a hard one for some to decide which to pick. The die hard writers out there would say an endless blank book would be their choice. Others would go with the Bible, or Torah. But, if you had to choose one book, or I'll do you one better, what one series of books would you choose to read over and over again till the end of time? If I were asking myself this question a few years back I would have chosen Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, including The Hobbit of course. Then it was the Harry potter series. I fell in love with that magical world. Everything about it was amazing to my over active imagination. Today, I would choose the Twilight series. I fell in love with it after my wonderful wife talked me into giving it a try. I found myself reading it between books over and over again. Before I knew it I had read the series eight times to date! It sounds crazy, but I know people do this with books all the time. There are so many great books out today! The Hunger Games is a favorite to myself and many. I just recently had the pleasure of reading the first two books in John Davis' amazing Gunship series. There are just so many to choose from. What's your go to book, or series of books? Don't be shy! I love feedback. ........................... If you don't already, you can follow me on Twitter @gen22y
