God Bless you and prayers for a speedy recovery!!

If you are ever in Fort Collins, Colorado, stop by New Belgium Brewery for a 1554 on me. My brother is an engineer there and he has a couple five cold 1554's for you !!!
Thank you Kicking Bird. And thank you for the prayers.

New Belgium Brewing Company? Yummmmm. I don't think they make a bad beer. Maybe instead of 5 1554's your brother could have a sample of each of thier different beers? <insert sheepish grin smiley here>

Last year I held a drawing for NRA memberships to be given away and even posted pics of the actual drawing taking place. I just looked at the pics again and sitting there beside the hat is a Mothership Wit.

Never heard of it, but it may be good. I'll have to find out, won't I?

Toddlers.... Oh yeah, I remember what those are...

Steaks, yummmmmmmmmmm........

Wow, 10 years of feeling like this is not something to look forward to. Yes, it is the worst part. I think the physical injuries would be a lot closer to healed if not for the psychological part. Things like waking up thrashing from a nightmare or worse is not condusive to healing a chest injury.

Thanks for the and back

I'd have never thought of a stuffed animal. Does make a bit of sense though. I spend a lot of time looking at the Caturday thread and I keep pics of my kitties up on my laptop whenever I can. Something about furry critters I guess....

Hey!!! I happen to know it's 2AM where you are. When do you sleep?

You need some rest to heal sweetie. Do you need a kitty to cuddle with @ night?

Sleep? What's that? Oh yeah, that's where the nightmares hide... They are there waiting for me again tonight...


Hi Zonny

I was just PMing someone noting the time. I know I need rest, but just can't sleep these days. That's part of what's dragging me down so much.

A kitty to cuddle with? Can you send my calico?

Zonny, you are just too nice to me. I started to write that you don't owe me any stuffed animal, but thought better of it before I clicked submit.



And you did give a laugh.


Now to look at kitties......

Here's the deal. My daughter tells me that all her 'needs' are readily available to her. She needs me to send her nothing but that there are plenty of troops who aren't in the situation that she is in and that if I want to send something send it to someone in need. So guess what? I chose you. You're stuck with me like it or not.

I have been told. <insert submission smiley here> Hey at least this time you didn't have to go get Lady Glock.


And I do like you and want to meet you someday. I just got to make it out of here.

LW, sweetie, you CANNNOT GIVE UP!!! If you give up, you will not be able to go on tour. I would not be able to give you the that I owe you, okie would not be able to give you the that he owes you, and you would miss out on all of the free beer. Sweetie, there are a lot of people that want to meet you and THANK YOU, personally for what you have done, for us. YOU keep your spirits up, and know that a lot of us are praying for your continued recovery, safety and well being, and will continue to do so.

LW, you have been a real blessing for us. Prayers for you and all of your brothers and sisters in arms.



Silent_Runner, I figured from some of the posts, that you 2 were real good friends. I knew that you would never do anything to hurt Lone_Wolfe. You 2 remind me of myself and a real good friend (old WWII vet), close to 40 years. We jab the needle at each other, just to keep each other going. It is so great when friends can do that.

I just want to know, who is going to chaffeur LW around the country, when she goes on her tour?

This post has been so hard to read. I can't get through it without still more tears. I know how wrong and selfish it is to even think about giving up. Sometimes it's hard to push those thoughts away when they take hold of me, but when I think of things like what you are saying here it helps in some way. The beer isn't important, it's the people. Not just people I know in RL, but you people here. So many of you that I want to meet now to thank in person for the prayers and support. I won't be able to do that if I give up now.















Okie is pretty smart isn't he? And he's got to be one of the nicest people on the planet. So are you. Silent_Runner is a pretty good friend. But she actually does have needles and isn't afraid to use them. She's also jerked a knot in my ass a few times in the last couple months. I figured I needed/deserved it.

You know, she would make a good designated driver......

Wow, I totally missed all this until now! I'm gonna make everyone jealous and point out the fact that I've actually met LW...

We arranged to meet - she'd bring the money, I'd bring the guns. That sort of thing. Cool night for Phoenix, too cool. Something was up. I drove past the parking lot twice to check things out (I was lost). Found the place, pulled in. There she was - standing like 5'4" of trouble under the single light in the parking lot.

"You *'Lone Wolfe'?

"Yeah. You *'BWPhoto'?

"I might be. You got the money?

"Lets see the hardware.

Like Tuco in a lonely hardware store, she proceeds to check out my SP101. Listening to the cylinder spin, working the action, etc... I flip through stacks of unmarked, nonconsecutive $20s. They smelled as real as the cold steel hidden at my 4 o'clock.

We agree on the deal and she opens the trunk of her high performance Mustang. No doubt that kind of HP making the trek through the desert to her hideout a high-speed joyride. It was unsettling to see how expertly she fit an 'arsenal' into the trunk - my former SP101 fitting neatly amongst rifles, more pistols, etc...

Convinced everything was as legit as it could ever be, I stuffed the cash deep into my pockets, wished LW luck with the new-to-her shooter and took off... Starting to rain, I wondered if our paths would ever cross again.

* names changed to protect the guilty!


====

Here's to a speedy recovery LW! I hope that .357 is still treating you well Thanks for your service to all of us and our country - I know that I and everyone on this board appreciate it immensely and are here for you if you need anything.
