Also critical to maintaining a happy-go-lucky outlook on life are your friends. In my case, I've been blessed since high school with a core group of old buddies who I can always rely on, and vice versa. Here's an old photo of five of us (sadly, "Kill" was taking the photo, so does not appear).
From left to right, the loyal members of SOPS - Ignatius (better known as "Ig"), Spot, the Control Monkey (now known as Zeus), Rico, and yours truly, aka Stuart.
Boy, I sure had a lot more hair, and a lot less "midriff," back then!
Good times, great friends (and one brother, aka Rico), and great beer! What could be better??
