I found my brand of vest on Amazon, but it is updated…

When Friction Creates Sadness You may recall that I turned 58 back in August.  It seems that every year since I turned 50, there has been a new issue to deal with every single year.  Each issue has been overcome, or I have accepted the new “thing” as part of how life will be from now on.  But never in my wildest dreams did I expect “friction”.  I try my best to do all the right things, practice healthy clean…
