2006 was a good year

Pictures : Here is another shot from back in 2006. When I start looking at my old photos, I seem to have a lot that I like from 2006.

Here is a Carolina Chickadee.

Finally : The winds have calm down, the temperature just under 50 ℉, and it feels pretty good.

Lactose tolerant : The last years I spent in my parent’s house as a kid, my father worked on a dairy farm, and one of the perks was all the milk you could drink. Well, pretty much, I think we got a gallon a day. At any rate, I could drink all I wanted and not have a problem with it. When I left home I went into the military, and again, each time you went to the mess hall you could have all the milk you wanted, and I drink a lot with no issues.
Weirdly enough, in my late 30s, that changed a bit. I started waking up at night feeling very strangled, and then one day talking to one of my older brothers about it, he said “do you drink milk” I said “yes” he said “stop for about a week” and I did, and that strangling went away. Lactose had become a concern for me. I can still drink milk, but not much and not late in the evening. Well yesterday, I guess I had a little too much a little too late. I paid for that! Not a fun feeling, waking up strangled several times in the night. Perhaps as I get older, I’m getting less lactose tolerant?

The weirdness of aging …

Folks, have a good day.

  1. Beautiful capture, John! I thank you for your service, my friend! I do know of others who have become MORE lactose intolerant as they have aged. It’s strange how we change! Take care, John!

    1. Thanks, Karla. I didn’t know it until now, but I guess I have become less lactose intolerant, I’ll just be a bit more careful. Hope things are going well for you, 👍.

      1. You’re welcome, John! Things are going the best they can. Challenges are like we all have. I sold my house and am moving closer to the hospital and family. That will be the best, but it’s so busy. Please take care!

  2. That’s a beautiful image of that Chick-a-Dee. I’ve never seen this type of one.

    #1 Grandson is lactose intolerant- too much and he gets sick. I don’t drink it by itself anymore. I stopped that as an adult. I do have milk or cream in my tea every day though.

    When I have cold cereal I prefer yogurt over milk.

    I hope you’re feeling better now.

    1. Thanks, Deborah. I think this is the only one I have seen in the east. I can cook with milks, and it doesn’t seem to bother me, but I just can’t have too much raw milk. I never have like yogurt much, but maybe I should try it again. The taste buds seem to change over the years too.
