Looks like I'll be picking the young man up Wednesday afternoon, and shipping him back home next Thursday. His mom told him what we talked about, and he says he's really looking forward to it, but he's requested that he spend Christmas eve and morning with his mom and younger siblings. Promises he'll go ahead and sober up because his mom told him I'd make him do it anyway. He's okay with it.

It looks like he's willing to straighten up, and just needs a little one on one man time.

Keep him perpetually busy so that he doesn't get bored and think of drinking (or anything else that would make him want to drink).

What I learned about additions and it does work if you can stick to it , I can sometimes but as we speak I am puffing away . When ever you get the urge to do that shot or line or puff ect , try to find something to take your mind off of it , some kind of test by smart people showed that a urge only last about 2 minutes .

Its a odd day for me for sure . I sold my Judge and traded my golf cart for a Weatherby 300 , and I thought that 7mm rem mag was a bad ride .
I really have no need or really any intention on keeping it , I am going to use it and the rounds that came with to pop off the tanny over the holidays then its gone ......... I hope

I am finally home from visiting Balota in Oklahoma. I have lots of pictures to share and stories to tell. I'm busy getting settled in back home but tomorrow I will post a bunch of pictures and tell a bunch of stories.

I planted 10 blue spruce seedlings to hopefully use as future Christmas trees. I'm so cheap I waited until Friday until I bought a tree, it was a whole $22!

Hats off to you trip, this might be the ultimate way to have your friends back. It sounds like there is a really good kid hiding under a bunch of grief.

I got no useful advice to pass along, I have a daughter.
