Had the world by the arse.
Had 80 acres in the country. Dad started having health probs. Moved 2 houses from Mom & Dad to be there. Dad had a series of strokes. Dad was my best friend. He sat in his chair for 10 years, I would dress him every morn and night undress and put him to bed, Hug and tell him I loved him. He died in my arms in 03. Mom is alone and Im close. I have the disheartening privilege of watching her deminish to the end.
Guns are my escape. Don't know as much as I want to about them, but am learning. I guess you would call it an obsession, at least my wife does. I call it a hobby. It is actually a resurected intrest from the early 70s. I had a FFL and dabbled in gunsmithing. Now I have an insatiable hunger for gun savi. I spend at least 4 hours a day bouncing from forum to forum. I am not a marksman in my estimation but enjoy shooting. I consider most people in this forum my friends.
Thanks for being one of them ( jpattersonnh, Cane,Stalkingbear,Dillinger etc.) and would like to put you all on my friends list.
