If I make to 45-50 I will be amazed , figure either cancer or getting killed in some accident .
I am worried , if I am this used up NOW , whats the future gone be like ? I just stopped all of my pain management to see if I can work through it all with out some pill pushing doc .
I admire you for taking responsibility for your own actions, many wouldn't. However how many are going to be devastated and miss you if you don't make it. I'll be blunt. How many will say "He didn't think about us when he was having fun".

It was way cool. I was impressed. My sister and I tested it to make sure it worked as advertised.

Hey trip, I'm heading to Memphis next weekend, what's the name of this place. PM me if you want. In Memphis you can never need too careful.

For someone who cries long and loud and outraged when someone steals from you or ruins your things, you sure have a passion for hurting other people and ruining their things. You seem to take great pleasure and pride in the destruction and mean acts you've done along the way. I don't understand your double standard.

One time you spouted how angry you were that someone was breaking into your shop and stealing things and how much you hated thieves but then a couple posts later you took great pride in bragging about how your wife steals dog food from WalMart by not scanning it when she does the self check out. I don't understand your double standard.

How angry would you be if someone pissed on you from a balcony. You'd be ready to fistfight over that, I'm sure. Yet you find great humour in doing it to others. I don't understand your double standard.

It's people like you who ruin things for us law abiding, respectful people.

I check the window any time the thought crosses my mind. I check the door and window any time I hear voices in the hall or outside, respectively. I use every lock on the door, plus a chair if one's available. I make sure the curtains are overlapped well. My gun is never more than arm's reach, even if I'm taking a dump.

I've lived in hotels while pipelining. Some in really bad neighborhoods. I learned to take paranoia seriously.

You could have avoided all that. I think you have a friend that lives real close to Memphis tha would have set you up with the best he and his wife could muster.

Yes and I locked both, somehow didn't keep me from staying up until some ungodly hour watching said door and also waking up three times to check it, and my truck, when I heard voices outside...

I kept my gun very close to me. It hasn't been out of reach except when I was inside the school.

The lady I talked to at campus housing said oh this is the safest housing we have, the security office is here and we have cameras. I'd still feel better if I could sleep with a 12 gauge...
