…we set off with enthusiasm on the climb. From the start, however, we were joined by flies that circled us ceaselessly, biting when they got the chance. The climb was grueling because we lacked appropriate equipment and experience, but some weary hours later we reached the summit. To our disappointment, there was no panoramic view to admire; neighboring mountains blocked everything. Whichever way we looked a higher peak was in the way. After some minutes of joking about in the patch of snow crowning the peak, we took to the task of descending, spurred on by the fact that darkness would soon be closing in. The first part was easy, but then the stream that was guiding our descent began to grow into a torrent with steep, smooth slides and slippery rocks that were difficult to walk on. We had to push our way through willows on the edge, finally reaching an area of thick, treacherous reeds. As night fell it brought us a thousand strange noises and the sensation of walking into empty space with each step.

One of my comrades has noted that at present my facial hair is slightly like this guy (Fandral, from Thor).
This amuses me greatly, because Stan Lee was inspired by this guy for his appearance.
That’s right boys and girls.

Q:are you dead?
News of my death has been greatly exaggerated.

I am assuming this is one of the US Westinghouse made ones but I have not been able to find any credible information on these pictures.
I do not believe anyone can be perfectly well, who has a brain and a heart
