It's not real

This year is not real, can't be. How can so much crap go wrong in one year. In fact 3yrs plus.
*March; wifes brother (#2 of 8 kids) passes away at age 52
from heart attach
a good friend of mine from high school passes at age
46 from heart attack
*June; vfr falls off of kick stand and gets bent just before
Laguna (not as serious as above)
*Nov.; wifes mother passes away
*Dec.; pickup gets crunched by teen
wifes brother (#1 of 8 kids) passes away at age 54
from heart attach yesterday

Is this unreal or what. Three trips to Texas this year for funerals a lone. Hard to believe. Two yrs ago my father passed away and things have been crazy-ness ever since.

But we're hangin. Maybe some of this community can keep us in their thoughts. We're tough, but........we're stretched a little thin right now.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!! Seriously

WARNING
If you are reading this then this warning is for you. Every word you read of this useless fine print is another second off your life. Don't you have other things to do? Is your life so empty that you honestly can't think of a better way to spend these moments? Or are you so impressed with authority that you give respect and credence to all who claim it? Do you read everything you're supposed to read? Do you think everything you're supposed to think? Buy what you're told you should want? Get out of your apartment. Meet a member of the opposite sex. Stop the excessive shopping and masturbation. Quit your job. Start a fight. Prove you're alive. If you don't claim your humanity you will become a statistic. You have been warned...... Tyler

Tough luck was all you seemed to receive in '03 I am sorry to read.

Still being 2nd oldest of the cousins in my immediate relatives all of them have died off, all aunts, uncles & all other possible relatives including my parents & I am the only kid my parents had.

So that the Govt will not take over my estate when I pass away I had a will made out to my h/gun shooting friend, then his wife, then the two daughters depending upon who dies off first (prior to me???).

At least in this way the long bbl guns, h/guns, reloading gear & such go to him & besides tools in my shop he can use or sell to others plus being a contractor of buildings or homes he has this home & can do what he wants with it with money going to his pocket.

Unfortunately he is not a m/cist. Still just imagine the shock when I asked if he would accept my will to him!!!!!!

What doesn't break you makes you stronger.

In early July 03 I caught had a serious lung & sinus cold from overworking in bad conditions (& 2 jobs). In late July, I asked for time off, which I never got. I then took a week off after my roomate cracked a bottle over my head. When I returned to work they fired me for no reason. Then I was afraid I was going to get jumped by my ex-roomate. In late August I had a motorcycle accident that almost cost me my leg. I spent the next 9 days in the hospital where none of my friends came to vist. I spend another 30 days unable to get out of bed because of all the surgeries and my friends didn't come by then either. I am now about to go back to school but they have done something where it looks like I will not be able to get my major (in college).

I hope you have a better year in 2004. If it helps, you are not the only person down on luck. Take care and have a happy New Year.

Smitty, if I ever make it to Western Canada, and I probably will, I would love to hook up and share some stories. Two years ago my wife and I did the Jasper/Canadian Rockies thang, it was wonderful. South of Jasper was smoked out do to forest fires, damn the bad luck, but we'll be back. Great back packing area. We'll get above the Seattle area as well.

Be talkin at ya
