So sorry to hear.  It is never easy to deal with and difficult to find the right thing to say to you other than I care.  I will be praying for you and yours.

Lifting you up in this hard time.  You and your family.  I pry that you can enjoy the time that you do have.  You will cherish it later as will the entire family.

Thanks everyone.  Back home safe.  Since everything was prearranged, it went as well as something like this can and no extra family issues.

Got the call about an hour ago that my aunt passed this morning.  She is the one who has been in the nursing home and I have been taking care of all of her affairs for the last 18 months.  Don't know yet the arraignments but trying to get things lined up for Saturday.  We have to travel about 8 hours each way to north Alabama.  Thanks ahead of time for the prayers and support.

I was in Kosovo at Camp Bondsteel.  Just back inside the wire from a clearance mission and got to watch the second plane hit live on TV.  It took about 10 minutes to lock things down and get to 100% security.  Bad juju for quite a while.  Redeployed in Aug and straight to NTC for mission prep.  Recalled from leave on Dec 23 for deployment order for OIF 1 (before it was called that).  We all know how that mission turned out.

Bought a replacement grommet for the fuel valve on my generator.  I pulled it out yesterday and it was leaking but still started on the first pull.  Got to ensure that I can run the house if this storm hits.

Finally got the stiches out yesterday.  Things are going fine.  Still stiff and sore but getting better everyday.  Here is a pic from last week when they took off the big bandage and decided to leave the stitches in since it was over the joint.  Thanks for the prayers.

Trouble is, a lot of people don't do standard parenting. It is why the country is where it is.

Thanks.  Better still.  Back at work with the low boot and large bandage on until Thursday when I get the stitches out.  Still some pain but moderate.

Thanks everyone. Been a painful couple days as it was more extensive than first thought. This afternoon I was able to walk a little without serious crutch use.  It is slowly improving. Hopefully able to lose the crutches tomorrow.

Please lift up my family and myself.  Tomorrow morning I am having surgery on my left big toe for bone spurs.  I am usually not a good about laying around after the first day. (no patients) Fortunately I should be able to get back up on it with a small boot within hours so my mobility will be slowed not denied.  Thanks ahead of time as I know how you guys get on stuff like this.

Spread mulch early this AM -  thankfully our neighbor ordered too much so I got to clean up! Was the perfect amount!   Later today I have to go and pick up a prescription for the dreaded colonoscopy!  As of Wednesday morning nothing other than clear liquids, that?ll suck! Then Thursday morning bright and early; date that I won?t remember!

That won't suck.  It'll blow.

Firearms / Re: AR15 issues
« on: June 13, 2018, 08:27:35 AM »
I think you may well have it.  After an inspection of the firing pin, try some store bought ammo.  I have had similar issues with reloads except it would fire but not extract and you had to beat the charging handle back.  Not the way I want to treat my gun.  The reload may fire fine in one rifle but not another.  That is why there is a gauge to measure chambers.  Factory ammo is loaded a little more generic if you will to allow it to fire in almost all guns.  The person who reloaded it may have done it to shoot in his gun or may have not even measured the OAL.

Some others here can probably tell you more than I can.

Our company fleet (12ish) is almost entirely 07-10 model F150's.  The get used like construction vehicles by people who are using the bosses stuff like they don't care.  They routinely get the minimum maintenance to stay on the road, ie gas, oil changes and tires.  They have between 160,000 and 365,000 miles on them.  We do have to occasionally spend some on them as they continue to age, but not enough to convince the boss to replace them.  He is starting to consider replacing them as they approach 400k.  We have a couple gas F250's that are newer with 125,000ish miles on them and are treated about the same.

I am not a big ford guy, but the gas trucks take a beating and see a lot of miles.
