My Old Fat Ugly Face on Camera

My Old Fat Ugly Face on Camera
There is zero advantage to getting older, it is propaganda put forth by older people as an excuse to get fat and ugly.

I am playing around, my friend Phil here in Baguio took a photo of me and published on the internet. I have keep threatening to do this, just cannot work up the vanity to take photos of myself. I have been teaching Phil how to Blog, he is an excellent student.

Here is the Photo… ooops; I guess you need to go say Hello to his site to view.

Let me explain, I know I am fat and ugly, every time I look in the mirror that tan farm boy, the beach bum of 22 is not there, no bulging muscles and the eyes are not as blue, some new character has taken his place. The good part is I still expect to see and demand to see that young man in the mirror.

Phil is one of the many Veterans who was introduced and made friends with the Philippines while overseas serving his country as a young man. These men fell in love with Southeast Asia and many continue to wander around in the land they love, they still see the young man in the mirror. Phil and a gentleman by the name of Victor have sailboats, they are going to sail to adventure. An adventure starts in the mind, lives in our dreams and is realized one day at a time; Phil is walking the walk, talking the talk, and will surely find his adventure. I hope Victor enters in and post his links below in the comments so we can understand the whole story…

Eric, I had many conversations about the size of a sailboat with Phil. I think the cost of maintaining a small boat, the ease of living on the hook, and the abilty to man the boat himself was the reasons for the smaller boat.

I tend to feel 30-35 foot is needed for comfort.

I am told you can purchase boats in California marines for less than 1000 dollars because people have not paid the slip fee.

I would buy one today if I could get 30-35 foot sailboat. I would sail it down to Guatemala.. not easy to get to that side, but I would put it in Rio Dulce and live on the hook.

Phil is a great guy, he will discuss this by email, write him.

Andy, your recent posts and the explosion of activity in the comments section make for a very interesting blog.

Mom And Dad Hey Andy, We really want to thank your friend. It was great to see your smiling face after all these months without a HOBO picture in front of you. Of course, we think you are handsome. After all, you are are our adventuresome son with the blue eyes and blond hair. Last evening your sisters said it is indecent to stay so young looking when they have to work at it. Just thought I would throw that in.

Small World! Phil stayed with us several times at our guest house style Townhouse Hostel near the Manila airports. I came across your website years ago not long after creating my own homepages and happy and a wee bit envious of how much your web presence has multiplied. Im quite ignorant about the fine points of internet technology so thanks for sharing your experiences in your FAQs page. I just started to check out googles adsense option and have never made a peso directly from my website which was originally created as an advertising venue for our small businesses and to help answer the most common questions budget travelers ask. After playing hostel answering the same dozen questions asked by thousands of backpackers and budget travelers who passed through The Townhouse the first ten years we were open I created a Map / Budget Travel Information Wall inside our place and provided the same information on my website. We have alot in common you growing up in Indiana and me in Des Moines, Iowa and both traveling the world on shoestring budgets during our first 10 years of living life on the road. After taking a 3 year break from being in front of a screen from 2004 to 2007 limiting it to an hour / day or less, Im back on-line more so will frequent your blog. ENJOY LIFE! and Keep sahring the JOY of your world travel adventures. Bill
