    “Maybe I love this because I?m there or because he uses just as many commas as I do.”  That totally made me smile.

    Great post.

    Awesome.  I love the last paragraph.  And the photo. 
    Oh, and what IS IT about fire fighters?  GAH!

  • January 28, 2008

    There is so much about this post that I love.  Really.

  • January 28, 2008

    Mmm sounds like a book I’ll have to track down a copy of. I enjoy the classics like that. I just don’t get what it is about firefighters that makes us women all googly(even me!).

    Oh, there is so much in this post that I can relate to!  A few months ago I had the same conversation around a kitchen table about how the 30’s have been full of new found confidence, comfortable with who we are, not as sensitive to what others think.

    I’m still coming to grips with the wrinkles on my forehead, but they make me look wiser too, right?

    Great post!

    I LOVE this post. And I LOVE a good fireman.  Yowza!

  • January 28, 2008

    Thanks, y’all. It’s so nice to relate to other people. I love LOVE my thirties. Love.

    Something I realized, though, is that the mailman may possibly the only uniformed post that is not sexy. So it’s not just the uniform…

    This is a great post.

    It truly is.

    This post was like a warm bath. (Only cozier and with less nakedness.)

    I love all the thoughts and wisdom in here. (And? TOTALLY with you on the uniforms.  TOTALLY.)

    I wish I had a hippie bible.  I guess I’ll just have to envy yours.

    Beautiful post.

    The forties are good, too.

    (did I just admit I’m over 40!?!?!?!?)

  • January 29, 2008

    I heart this:

    Bust mostly I hope that every stage reminds me I?m still essentially me, maybe covered in a few more coats of wrinkles or rolls, but still me. I hope I remember to listen to music, to tap my toes, to visit with good friends and to walk when the sun is just cupping the trees over the houses.

    My mom and I have been having some really interesting conversations about how she essentially still deep down feels like she did in her 30s, even though she is now 70.

    Beautiful post Les!

    The thirties are way better than the twenties…for me anyway!

    This was a great post!

  • January 30, 2008

    Yep, 30s definitely rock. For me, this age brought some new respect for as well as from others I hadn’t had before along with a set of brass balls that seemed to drop from nowhere. Unfortunately, the boobs dropped too. Hmmm, shiny brass balls vs perky boobs??

    Blah blah wisdom, blah blah age, blah blah…wait! did someone say fireman?

    Sprechen of uniforms, is it just me or what about FedEx guys? Are they hot or what? (directly to the gutter I go, of course)

  • January 30, 2008

    That was a beautiful post.

    But you know what I enjoyed the most? Being reminded of hot firefighters.

  • January 30, 2008

    TheMacMommy, Balls vs droopie boobies. Now that’s something that brings a good google search. haha! Funny.

    And firemen = hot yummy goodness, yes. We are all agreed then? Great.

    Let’s talk about policemen now, shall we? heh.

    I’m out of my thirties now but I remember them fondly.  You post had me thinking back to a class trip with my son to visit the local fire dept and learn what they do and I sure remember admiring those handsome men.  I have never been a woman that was attracted to men in uniforms but I must say mmmmmmmm!  Great post and thanks for the memories!

    Now if you could just Photoshop some hot firemen onto the lake photo, this post would exceed its current state of perfection.
