"if ya dun't gut your health, you gut nuthin".

i always remember those words. they were said by an elderly gentlemen in '81 who lived in my building. he and his wife were retired and they used to walk together holding hands. then she died. i tried to copy his yiddish accent.

last year my husband passed and i have health problems. even though i've always repeated those words over the years they mean much more to me now.

I'm glad you were inspired by that gentleman to enjoy your husband and your health while you could. We could all use a reminder of that.
