I hear that.Never stop Bob. When you stop living, you start dying.
You can do this, Ed.I hear that.
Sadly, I have a friend who is the same age as I am. He's got health issues that are different than mine.
But unfortunately he'll seem to hold those ailments up like he's wanting recognition for having them. And despite talk won't do a damn thing to overcome them.
Indeed it's in the mind spirit and soul.
To his credit he has lost weight but that's not totally good because that was when he was too depressed to eat.
I've got my issues but I plan on going to the gym later tonight so I can literally and figuratively get back on my feet.
Been doing that since April/May. After recovering from Covid19.
Yeah this is sounding like a rant and it kind of is. Anyways I got a Planet Fitness "Black Card" membership in hopes he'd want to tag along and maybe start to work out. Nope not a peep out of him. What's annoying is he'll butt right in if I'm talking to someone else about hunting, competition shooting or hiking. Any of which he's not really physically fit for. Me if I jumped through hoops and had knee replacement surgery and all I'd be good to go for anything again.
But nope they won't do it yet ...oh well.
Back to hunting and such and all. At the least I could get a hunting license and blast a Deer or two maybe out the back window of the house.
But that ain't my style of hunting.
If ...well when I get back to my ideal weight...my ideal weight I'll be able to stalk, track and get out in the deep woods again. That's 6'2" about 220-230lbs and bench pressing 200lbs 50 times.
Oh my. Yes, Steve is building a 30-06 for me. I last talked with him a month or so ago and had no idea he has COVID. He certainly will be added to my prayer list. I have no idea what stage the rifle is at, I didn't want to be bugging him about it but he has all the pieces (action, new barrel, stock, scope and rings, etc.)Hey Bob,
Good to see you again ! Steve Bowers and I have been working together some the past 7 years and He told me he had been building Rifles for you ! I got to meet Brother Bob, Seebee Scotty at the Tulsa gun Show as well as several others from several Forums.Blake from Missouri has been to my home here and BigCaneswift has as well. All Great Guys!!
FYI Steve is in the Hospital battling Covid so Please keep him in your Prayers.
