Yep. Even if the video won't play I can see what the song is usually. I'm old enough to remember when that song came out.....

Sure good to see you here again.

I told the demons they had to stay in the old CHU, even turned the AC all the way up for them, but they seem to have escaped. I was hoping they wouldn't find me here, but they did. I got to go back to the old CHU tomorrow and get the cleaning stuff I left there, so I'll try again to lock them in.

Wish I could lock that dang Nightmares up far away from me.........

If you're still around at this obscene hour, I want to offer this (not of my making), as a token of lifting up. You can make it just "one more mile."

The Paul Butterfield Blues Band
One More Mile


I feel the night is on your side
Shadows wait you when you rise
You hold the weight of every moment
And more no distance in your inside

And while you wallow in your wounds
You let the devils draw near
One more mile is all we have
You got nothing to fear

I feel the night is on your side
And I don't recognize this road
We sleep all day and walk all night
You're leading me too far from home

And he says pour another drink
And take a good look around
One more mile is all we have
Until the lost become the found

And by the firelight I see footprints
Shadows circle on that floor
And everything is so familiar
We have come this way before

Do I have the will, do I ?
One more mile
One more mile

Do I have the will, do I ?
One more mile
One more mile


The journey you are taking has only one requirement, that you take just one more step, then one more.... Don't fog your vision too much on the arrival, just focus on today's mile. When this day is complete know you have been successful and achieved this days goal. No concerns about tomorrow for it is forever away and will take care of itself.

I like those lyrics.

Good Day, Wolfe! I'm happy to report that all of the 3 day walkers have raised all of their money. The 6 woman team raised $14,602 for breast cancer research. The walk in Dallas starts Friday. I think there are going to be over 4,000 walkers. We're going over there this weekend to cheer them on.

My daughter got a blister on her foot from an 8 mile walk we did on Monday evening. I hope it heals up before then.

I think my mother would have been very proud of her.

Congrats to Team Footsore! That's awesome. I hope the blister is healed up, too.

I have no doubt your mother is proud right now.

Actually it was 9AM my time when you posted that, so yes, I was up at work.

A while back RottnJP and Buki posted in here some comments about how I needed to focus on a getting through day, an hour, even a minute at a time and it made a huge difference to me. At that time I really didn't think I was going to be able to get through another day, let alone week, month, etc. But I could get through a minute, then an hour..........

When I was reading what you posted it made me think back to those earlier posts and realize that in recent months I've gotten away from that and started worrying how I was going to get through next week and the week after and so on, when I'm still struggling with today.

Thank you.

Wolfe, my wife is struggling with her parents declining health and asking me how we're going to deal with it if this or that happens. I have to keep reminding her to take it one day at a time, too.

That's really the only way to deal with it. She asks me how she's going to do something, and I tell her she is doing it.

With Faith and Courage.

And both of you have more of both of those qualities than you think.

I know you've told me a little of your in-law's health problems and I pray for them and you and your wife as you go through this. My own mother's health isn't so great either.

I think my faith isn't strong at all. It wasn't that great to begin with, it's been questioned a lot in the last 23 months. I don't know, maybe I'll come out with a whole new view on things. I wish I could find that courage you speak of.

Mandy, did you hide that courage from me?

One advantage to my way is that you get to go out several times a day and shoot near him with an AK-47 and live ammo. Show him what it feels like.
I like you idea. REALLY like your idea, except for one thing. Considering where he's tied, that part might just rip off and let him fall to the ground. Or course the remaining 9010 feet to the ground would be memorable. Oh, and I think shooting near him so he can get an idea what it feels like would be even better is at least one of the bullets HITS him. Big difference between being shot and shot AT.

I'm sorry you hurt yourself again, but glad that you are recovering and the doctor thinks it's just a pull (even though a pull for you is still pretty hurtful). Bob's uphill curves are a very good picture of your trek. Notice that even the straight parts have their ups and downs.

You are SO much further along than when I first started posting on this thread. I know that you don't think so, especially when you do something that hurts. It's a lot easier for us to see it, because we're watching you from our own positions on that road. And we're all there somewhere.

Included SR in my prayers as well.

Meanwhile, the only piece of advice I have for you is that the next time a drunk guy starts to fall off your lap, just let him go. : rofl:: tongueout:

Love, prayers, lots of gentle , and cradling you in my arms as you sleep.

Hawk
The pull I did a few days back is mostly back to the 'normal' pain, so I was lucky there. It hurt bad enough I (and my Doc) was worried I might have re-injured myself. Hawk, he agrees that I have to let the drunk guys fall off my lap next time, but he said I should catch you.

Sometimes I look back, or read back to where I was and I can see the progress, other times I'm too busy trying to put one foot in from of the other and trying not to fall. Or falling and having to get back up and start again. That's the hardest part.

I'm glad you are back to what you consider normal and hope even that is improving steadily. I know you would like to have no pain at all and we would all like that for you but you have to be patient.

You have made a lot more progress than you realize but your aer right about having a long way to go. Keep getting back up and starting again.

Sweetheart, every time you get back up and concentrate on putting one foot in front of the other that is progress and the demons are made weaker. Good for you! The sleep of the just for Miss Lone tonight and every night.

Faith isn't strong, huh? Then why do you keep asking for prayers for 23Skidoo and are thankful for our prayers for you? I've seen you on other threads saying you will pray for someone. You believe God exist and that he answers prayers, is why. Of course you've questioned your faith since you got hurt. Who wouldn't? I think it is a safe bet to say that you are relying more on God these days than when you were the woman with the big revolvers. I believe God and his angels are with you right now. Why? Because we keep asking them to be.

It's during times like these that Satan does his best to test your faith. That's why you have these awful demons in your head. They can't win because we keep asking God to protect you.

You just have to keep doing it. You're healing, even though you can't see it. You're getting the care you need, and you're getting your finances straight. You're not just sitting there in limbo, you're accomplishing something.

You know the worst is past, don't you? You're not on a stretcher with some guy pumping on your chest, probably yelling "don't die on me!"

I'm back up, I'm trudging along, and my physical terrorist is back to torturing me. Oh well, 2 out of 3 aint bad.......

I know, I know, you're going to tell me that it's good that he can go back to his usual torture.

Major Pappy Boyington, a MEDAL OF HONOR winner, said "Show me a hero and I'll show you a [human being]." (Actually, he said bum, but that is just a word for fallible humans.) That you question yourself and your faith is normal, especially when going through a long and painful struggle, is as human as you can get.

As you recall, I used to tell you that a lot of what you were feeling was normal. So I'm just telling you again. You're still a normal human with all these feelings.


Louis L'Amour said in one of his books that courage is defined as getting up just as many times as you get knocked down.

Admiral Nelson defined a hero as one who inspires courage in others.

Paul defined faith as believing in what is not seen.

You have gotten up every time you've been knocked down.

You have inspired many to keep getting up, both those who have acknowledged it here and just those who have read and been inspired.

You have never really forsaken your belief that you will get well and get on with your life.

Here's to a faithful courageous human hero, who doesn't know all the ups and downs yet to come, but knows where the finish line is. (And is very likely to be upset with me for using those words about her. )

Love, Prayers, lots of gentle , and cradling you in my arms as you sleep.

Hawk

PS. I was figuring on a harness that would let it pull unmercifully, but stop short of pulling it off.

PPS. Did I mention wrapping him in pigskin for this operation.

PPPS. You're allowed to shoot him all you want. No one else can.

So that's where all my courage went. My little finger! No wonder I couldn't find it!


Methinks you underestimate yourself.

As you recall, I used to tell you that a lot of what you were feeling was normal. So I'm just telling you again. You're still a normal human with all these feelings.


Louis L'Amour said in one of his books that courage is defined as getting up just as many times as you get knocked down.

Admiral Nelson defined a hero as one who inspires courage in others.

Paul defined faith as believing in what is not seen.

You have gotten up every time you've been knocked down.

You have inspired many to keep getting up, both those who have acknowledged it here and just those who have read and been inspired.

You have never really forsaken your belief that you will get well and get on with your life.

Here's to a faithful courageous human hero, who doesn't know all the ups and downs yet to come, but knows where the finish line is. (And is very likely to be upset with me for using those words about her. : tongueout: )

Love, Prayers, lots of gentle , and cradling you in my arms as you sleep.

Hawk

PS. I was figuring on a harness that would let it pull unmercifully, but stop short of pulling it off.

PPS. Did I mention wrapping him in pigskin for this operation.

PPPS. You're allowed to shoot him all you want. No one else can.
“Show me a hero and I’ll show you a bum”,…. Hmmmmmmmm, not sure what point he was trying to make, but I don’t often think of myself as a bum. Don’t often think of myself as a hero either, but I’m not upset that you call me that. I can see why you think I am, based on the definition you give here. I may not completely agree, but I can see your point. But I always thought of a hero as someone who put themselves in danger to save other lives. Pretty narrow definition, actually. Then last July, the day after I called the police to Skidoo’s house I was sitting in a friend’s office after fixing what I had gone there for. I was upset and more than a little exhausted, having stayed up the night before calling for updates and posting in here. She could tell I wasn’t feeling well, so she made tea while I told her about Skidoo’s stroke. She asked a few questions, including how I found out, so I told her what I did. She stopped what she was doing and said “You’re a hero in that man’s eyes”. I really didn’t feel like a hero, but had to agree with what she said. What one person may not consider a hero another does. If I’ve managed to inspire courage or anything else good in anyone here then I’ve given back a small part of what I’ve gotten.

I think at times I have lost the hope that I’d ever get better, but at times have thought “Well, I can’t get any worse!” Of course I thought that when I first started taking those anti-depressants and was I ever wrong! I went for a while there that I really thought there was no way I’d ever get better. That contributed to my just wanting to give up and die because I couldn’t stand the thought of going on the way I was. And being on meds that screwed my head up sure contributed to those thoughts….

I can’t see the finish line yet, but it’s got to be up there somewhere.

back to you.


Oh yeah…. About that Afghani bastard… Now you’ve got the harness idea right, and I like the pigskin idea. If he gets so hungry he begs for food we’ll offer him pig’s feet. I might ask if one of you guys would mind doing the shooting for me. Even the thought of touching an AK is making me shake and cry. Besides, the recoil would hurt!
