Not a chance, Slug. As you know, if it looks too good to be true then it isn't. They're just classmates. If you look at male nurses very few actually hook up on the job. Health care has by far the most hostile climate for dating and stuff. What they're showing on TV ("ER", "Grey's Anatomy") it's like the complete opposite of the true situation. A majority of women in health care won't date an average guy like you and me. It's a lot less stressful to call your friends and ask them to hook you up with somebody.

Sexual harassment policies are everywhere in health care, the dudes from "Grey's Anatomy" would have been out of a job within a month in real life. In a respectable hospital young doctors are worth a dime a dozen.

I put the arrow in the picture using an imaging program called Fireworks.

From our special day last year!

This is when we had some wedding photos done on a beach after leaving the church, what the photographer didn't realise was this was the same beach where I proposed to my lovely lady a few years earlier.
We aren't too happy with most of our wedding pics and currently in the process of getting them "fixed!"

We're not average!
Maybe below average, but not average.
Different maybe.


You know how I look.
I beat the odds.
You look a little like Sean Connery, 007, in that picture.


You need a car.
Do you have a cool car?


I'll bet you could take one to one of those Chicago places to eat you told us about.
Everyone likes pizza.
After one date and pizza, they will be chasing you!


I was a total loser until I met Dolley.
Took about 30 years.
She cleaned me up, taught me fashion, and squared me away.
Hang in there Babe!
Half the world is females.
She's out there right now.
In a pizza parlor, or a Taco Bell.


Idea!
Go to a Hooter's and somehow let them know you are a medical person.
That should be a plus.
Can you see yourself in the middle of all that?

That's true... my mum went grey early and I soon discovered at a younger age that I had that gene too!

My wife doesn't mind one bit.

Here I am last summer in the Alps:



That's a Swiss Army 105 MM gun outside the entrance to one of their mountain fortresses, now a tourist attraction (it was closed the day we were there).

We climbed a trail near Lake Champex up to 2800 metres. Great scenery though the trail was a bit narrow at times.
