That sounds great! A couple of forum members getting to meet up with each other and making a good deal on some equipment.

Don't be a stranger on here you can still come around.

The docs told my dad he had one year left sometime before I was born. I took leave from the Army when he died. Don't put too much faith in their predictions. They were probably weathermen before becoming doctors.

It was a real pleasure to meet Dogsoldier & his son Joseph. I went up there expecting to pick up a few supers 2 veils & a few other small items. The man loaded me up! When I left The back seat as well as the bed of my truck were full.. I cant thank him enouth. I also got to look at some fine guns & the coffee wasn't bad either. Thanks again dogsoldier.

I am also sorry to hear of you bad health. I guess the upside would be that 5 years gives you a good deal of time to straighten and place in order a lot of things.

my father passed away some 9 years ago in a VA hospital in Shreveport, La at the age of 84.... army ranger during the big war. He had been informed by a hospital full of doctors that he only had one or two years to live back in the late 1950's (all service related stuff associated with long patrol thru freezing arctic water and over administration of sulfa drug). anyway the way it worked out he outlived all the doctors and sadly enough all his friends.

and during this season of renewal... merry chistmas.

I never liked to say good bye--always till we meet again, and we will meet again in some form or another. With regards to your health conditions--never believe that you can't do something because it seems like you can't--becomes self fulfilling never turn down a challenge, I say this as a person that has had issues that I had to deal with, and overcame--you can as well %80 of and problem is mental--%20 physical--get your mind right and you'll do o.k. Never truer words spoken--if you don't use you will surely lose it this applies to all physical activities simple concept--mind over matter--I don't mind--it don't matter get well and forget the doctors opinion--because that is what it is a opinion nothing is written until it actually happens then they appear to be geniuses how many times were they wrong and suddenly they looked like dumb- well not smart. Get better, God Bless, and I will offer prayers for you, and all you need to do is stress less, and think right .
