okie, the lovely LW, deserves better than Spam sammiches. You should be embarrased. I'm shocked!!. You should at least get a basket full of them 2# burgers you were talkin about. Course there probably wouldn't be none left for LW, after you got through.

Of course we all know LW, is too much of a lady, to complain, if you did take Spam sammiches.

LW, sweetie you get some rest.

Okie Memorial Area

Normally there wouldn't be a zombie in the foreground.


ETA: Hope the visual aid helps, LW.
No worries my friend. That would be a hell of a place to have a picnic with LW for sure

Here's how simple it is...

Grab the girl, put her in your Dodge, drive to Colorado Springs, stop at the grocery store down the street from me, get some spam & tater salad, Diet Dr. Pepper, stop by my house, I gots the hook up for the beer, drive 20 minutes up Ute pass to Rampart Reservoir, park the car... picnic on. I'd recommend anytime before October.. never know what kind of weather you'll get at 9,000 feet.

Sit back, watch the sun hit the North Face of Pike's Peak. Slowly digest spam.

I'm hoping that one of these days after a good night's sleep something will click into place.
.................................................................................................... ....
"Almost dying" really means one thing ... you are alive and kicking!
To strong to die. Spitting in the Devils eye.

It means God has a plan for your life.

You are still in His playbook and He is going to run a few plays where He needs you to throw a perfect block, knock down a pass, sack the QB, or recover a fumble for great field position. You might be on the bench right now (you took a big hit for the team) but in a couple of plays you get the ball back, go back on offense, and it will be time to gain some yardage and score a touchdown.

Never fear. Never. We will hold them until you get back on the field.

The team is rallying for you, and the fans in the stands are screaming your name! There's plenty of time on the clock!
We haven't even reached halftime but there's no doubt who is going to win this game.

And the cheerleading squad is deep and loud.
Go Lone_Wolfe Go! Go Lone_Wolfe Go! Go Lone_Wolfe Go! Go Lone_Wolfe Go!


Sorry about the football metaphor. I tried to come up with something featuring cats, but I'm a dog guy.

Awwwww, darn. Being grounded aint fun. But you can wax my Mustang if you want. Plus I wouldn't complain if you rub MY feet.

I'm doing OK today, got lots of sleep last night.

What was that stuff they gave me anyway.....

LW, glad you had a better day, hope this turns into a mighty long streak of better days.

Prayers and good wishes to both of you!
Thank you for the kind words Slobberchops. FWIW, Beware Owner did more than give me goose bumps, he had me bawling like a little girl. At least I AM a girl.

Thank you for the prayers for both of us.

BTW, that pup in your avatar is gorgeous! Do you have a bigger pic you can PM me?

Yep, I've been down this road before. Except it wasn't anything bad before that I needed to understand. What I can't get my mind around is why I can't internalize this like I need to. I wonder, why is it I don't "know" something I'd have a hard time denying. From the day I woke up in the hospital I've heard it enough times. The doctor that was there when I first woke up said "Welcome back. I didn't think we were going to be able to save you". Wished I didn't have tubes going down my throat, I would have cussed him good.
I found out a few months ago that I have the nickname of "Cat" around the hospital because I supposedly used up over half of my nine lives...

You'd think I'd have figured it out by now...

Yep, I agree with you Bumpadrum. If I had my way I'd blow off what happened and say "Whatever, those bastards tried, but they didn't kill me".

The problem is my subconcious doesn't see it that way. At since it has the capability of throwing nightmares at me damn near every time I try to sleep guess who has the say in the matter?

So that means I got to listen to my shrink and try to do what she says. She says I need to think about it, talk about it, deal with it. As much as I don't want to.....

For what I have read on your posts and other's speaking of you, you're such a down to earth person, have such a big heart, and transparently seem like a friend anyone should have, and the friend we really all need. I'd happily say that these are probably good reasons this thread has accrued so many pages, because that's who you are, and one of the few awesome and outstanding human beings this world needs, and we recognize that. You have a strong spirit, and ours are with you to provide you with that extra ounce of strength you need. There's no reason in this world why you should feel alone, because you're not. There will come the day where you'll sit back and laugh it all off, and every day that passes, you're one day closer to it. Pray, not like He's some mythical creature, but like He's there and listening. You'll be surprised at what you get. From me, receive a big hug and a brotherly kiss on the forehead, you've been an angel that's watched over us all.
Well you’ve brought way more than a single teardrop to my eyes, believe me. Several times. I’ve never been one to claim to understand God’s ways at all, in fact I’m completely stumped most of the time. Including what he has in mind for me or why I’m still here. You know, I read this post and think I’m no different than anyone here. We just try to do the best we can in our lives. I try to be a good person, sometimes I fail badly. Sometimes I do something that I think isn’t anything special, but someone else does. There’s a certain feeling you get from being able to do something for someone without expecting a thing in return that you can’t get any other way. The irony of that is sometimes I feel selfish when I do something for someone just because it makes me feel that good. I don’t think my heart is any bigger than yours or so many other people who have stood beside me in spirit recently, who have sent me things that they didn’t have to, who have taken time to write me words of encouragement or even getting on me case when I’ve made some bad choices.

I haven’t felt strong in months but lately as I’ve read what you and others say to me it gives my strength. I really don’t feel so alone anymore, even though I’m so far away from the world I knew. Strange as it may seem when I saw that vision of people the other night I had the impression of good will coming from them. Ever since then I’ve been thinking about that and wondering if somehow you people could have had anything to do with that.

I will tell you one thing though, I will never just laugh this off. Another soldier was killed in the attack. It hurts me even more because he had made it to safety. He only blew cover to try to get to me to get me out of the line of fire. I part of me will always feel to blame for what he did, although I wasn’t even aware of it happening. Yes, it will get easier, but never funny. I’m looking forward to that hug, and you have been an angel to me.

None of it is your fault LW. You just need to convince yourself of that. Continued prayers for you lady.

Wow, am I late to get on this bus or what? I just read what happened and I'm very sorry for your injuries and lost friend.

I hope, as time goes on, that you'll be able to cut yourself some slack with the guilty feelings you're having. They're normal, but I hope you'll let them go. They will serve you no real purpose except as a reminder of the value of human life.

Best wishes and get well soon. Thank you for your service.
