As an optimist lets get the bad stuff out of the way.. You guys all know my brother has been in and out of the hospital and care centers dealing with near fatal heart and abdominal surgery issues (colon removal).. On top of this bub had MRSA in the lungs, and bottom line is its been a long past three months for him..

Unfortunately it looks like he's going to be admitted again down in Sierra Vista this afternoon.. This is a pulmonary issue again, and bottom line sure would appreciate your prayers.. As always it's not necessary to respond guys, i know you all so well. I know i have a "check" on this so seriously don't feel compelled to comment. Gary and i both would prefer a simple silent prayer, (or thought for ya heathens lol).. You might mention a good psa score for my prostate c treatment would be cool (apt wed on that) while your talking with the man upstairs..

Now on to good stuff.. Besides a Naval Patrol Squadron site, and a couple gun collector sites the only other place i ever go on the net is a Christian site..Obviously not quite as much fun as you guys, but some good folks (teaparty types) So one guy who goes by Crusty Curmudgeon (thought it was Sam in drag for a bit) tells me today hes a gun lover (has 13) and reloads. The old boys name is Jeff.. and I've invited him to check the site out.. He has a son who's a county deputy, and while i don't know him as well as i know you guys, he seems pretty much or sorta man.. will see how he handles Ebear..

Funny, when i was trying to explain the site to Jeff i had a hard time with it.. Lets face facts its pretty amazing that our little group of alpha geezer and semi geezer males exists on an open site.. There's something really special about this site, and our friendships, for what ever reason it works, and I've never been happier to know a group of guys in my life.. In short, and i think we all feel this way, it's not to far removed from having someone meet your family..We have gone way past the normal internet (like were anywhere near normal huh) anonymity on here, and we all know it..

So goes Saturday, 13 November year of our Lord 2010...

a man has to hold his word, hold his beliefs, and hold a good sight picture.

You was 15 miles from Claremore when you was in Tulsa. You could have seen the Gun Museum. Hope all is well! You are a stronger person now for what you have been through, in the last 6 months.

But does have a 6 3/8 in bore.
I'm making projectiles on my lathe
out of tree trunks.
All I have left to do is mount it on the
axle and build the height adjustment
No Problem soon as I get things
caught up.
I swear I work harder since I retired

Lot of stuff going on, Brother is in CCU (cardiac) stable, but thats about all.. Congestive heart disease, lot of fluid build up, lot of oz (8) liters.. Only good thing is the MRSA means its not "JUST" the CHF.. Still possible that he could pull out of this..

You guys have no idea how much it meant to me to log on and see that whole line of checks.. sitting here all blubbering like a fool. Thanks is a word, and doesn't come close.. turn it around, lets say it's your brother..

This all started when Vaq and his wife were in AZ. Plans were that we were going to put them up. (even cost me new guest towels) We were a day (maybe two) away when the SHTF.. We still almost made a connection.. the following day Vaq and TBH were checking into a sleeze bag motel over in the east valley (expensive, but not a sleeze bag) we were hoping to see skippy and his lovely wife, but wound up in the back seat of a Ram dually heading to SV instead..

Sorry guys, tired, and late.. but do want to tell you thanks.. Mike can't join us for a booze toast, but he can join the toast.. I've always liked this one, and it's pretty accurate..

This toast has two groups, people, or a response.. how ever you want to say it.. here goes..

"to us, and those like us" .. "Damn few".. "and most of them are dead"..

No more checks needed.. God bless all my tramp buddies..

Your buddy Holt is on the list.. you know the drill, If your serious about something you do it, not just talk about it, Mike's on my list.. Great you've kept that friendship up, i lost track of my HS buddies years ago.. Same thing with guys i served with.. Great all 4 of you stayed in touch, thier doing good stuff with his illness, guessing he's going to be around to tell stories on you for sometime yet..
