Friends, it is this dissonance within us that Paul spoke of in Romans 7.
Believers or not, you both speak of behavior patterns so common to us all. You are not alone.

Nigel, just one other thought:
You mention "Behavior that has been repeated over many years." You have my sympathies about that category of behavior. For me, too, the deepest humiliation is the recognition of behavior that I have sought to improve or alter, certain that I could--and ought--to do better, and to find that its repetition is a fact of life. In this you are far from alone. There is the challenge: to be at war deep inside, or to make peace with oneself. Thanks, all, for listening.

August 10th! That's the first day of lobster season on the coast nearest me. Oh dear. I shall delay sending you any lobster in case the surgeon fucks up and you pass. Can't waste any Northumberland Straight lobster, eh?

To my nephew just now.

Heard it in Mum's voice when I called her at 8:30. I call her every morning at the same time. There are certain days when I kinda know it's gonna be a bad day. Well, July 1 is one. I went over to clean sinks and mop and such as I couldn't take her out to the stores for a walk as usual and I knew she could "use some company" today. After I was done... well, tears flowed.

But, it's 8 years now and I have dealt with it, to some extent, through writing short stories and visiting his grave every year with a bottle and "having a chat". I have a fair few short stories. I share none. Sometimes, I will share a snippet, as I did today in a forum that has given me some joy and solace since I stopped hunting.

I thought of sharing this with you but I was hesitant. Then I thought... WTF? Share it with some friends and 16k+ strangers? Why not share it with Ian?

So, I screenshot my posts. They are attached. Unless I gotta send them one at a time... ???... I am still technologically declined. Nope looks like I got the whole post.

Hope all is well with you and yours.

Here is the text in the screenshots... no pics attached to this post...

I call this pic "Time for a Smoke". On this day in 2008, Bro left. He was an RCAF Airman. He was unconscious for days before he left. Near a week after they took all the tubes out. He wasn't supposed to last as long as he did. Mum said, "A true Airman... he waited for Canada Day to die."

The pic. Long story that I won't try to look up. Here's a short version. To the right of the pic hangs a nice buck on the back of my truck camper. We celebrated with beers. After several beers, tired from the 'deer work', Bro fell asleep. Not long before he fell asleep, having had a couple of beers, he was in that mood he used to get in. He had his semi 308 beside his chair and he, without me knowing, put a mag in, set the butt on the road with the gun straight up and waited until I was standing about six feet away with my back to him. WHAM WHAM WHAM WHAM!!!!!! I near pissed myself. I took to swearing at him (and continued while I was pissing) and he just kept laughing.

And, then... he fell asleep. I took a smoke out of his package of smokes. I lit it and puffed on it. Then I put it between his fingers. I took a picture... and then I waited. You do the math.
I did not laugh. That would have escalated things. >;-)

Miss ya, Bro. RIP.

I've been trying to post since 22nd June...finally made it. I'm most grateful to Maeve, ChanteyLass, Pete & Keberoxu for your comments. Pete, you have hit the proverbial nail on the head. I felt a great sense of duty & obligation which proved increasingly difficult to maintain with the passage of time. After much reflection, I return, not as the thread instigator, but as Nigel seeking your succour, wisdom & experience.
         My wife, Ann is recovering well from a shoulder reconstruction, but her time in hospital has uncovered two, unrelated conditions, one of which is potentially life-threatening, given her medical history. We await the results of further tests & investigations, so until we know the results, any further comments would be speculative at best. My very first post was a 'cri de cœur'...I'm back where I started,
                                                    With Love,
                                                                   Nigel xxxxx

This resource is greater than any one person, regardless of those who got the whole thing started. It only has sense that those who first contributed towards the needs of others will themselves experience shortcomings, will disappoint themselves, and will feel humbled amongst other feelings. What better place to be helped in return?

This is a resource began by you , Nigel , when you felt in need of comfort and encouragement, and frequently offered the same to all of the crew. What it is not, is a duty or obligation , and if any of us goes ashore or on sick leave ,there are others to man the rainbow. And if any feel adrift others are throwing out a line.

Bob Offer, December 29, 1919-June 18, 2016. What a wonderful man! I guess the greatest tribute can make to my dad, is that we all enjoyed him so much. I have so many happy memories of the time I spent with my dad. He was always so interested in everyone and everything, and he always was happy and positive. He was generous to a fault, he sang at the drop of a hat, he seemed to know how to do everything, and he was so proud of his family and his friends. I had a nice visit with him for a week in April. We ate outside by the pond at his nursing home every day, and there were two bald eagles across the pond every day. We had such a good time watching them. We had a good time, a memorable time, doing so many things.
Goodbye, Dad. You were such a good man. God bless you.

...and he enjoyed life up to the very end. He was really something.

-Joe-

Joe Offer, no doubt I speak for us all when I wish you a Father's Day this year, under whatever circumstances, that you can remember with gratitude and even comfort. Until your post about Snoopy in the Charles Schulz thread, I had forgotten that you are getting over the death of a longtime pet dog as well. Anyone who has outlived a beloved pet companion knows how genuine that feeling of loss is. Add these two situations together, and this time must be a vulnerable one for you and yours. Keeping your family in my thoughts and prayers.

Visit MOAB. If they go there they usually don't come back because the folks there don't fight. They just ignore them and shovel it over them. Click on the "d" by the number of posts and scroll on down.

I'm going to go to a certified, genuine, she-ain't-that-sort-and-she's-liable-to-hurt-you-if-you-think-she-is Massage Therapist. She suggested a weekly visit of 15 minutes to work on the scar tissue in my hand. A good idea, methinks.

No one knows what the future holds, but we're already planning trips as far out as November. The next one is to Glacier NP and of course, Waterton.

I like a guy who drinks like that! My FIL wanted his coffin used as a bar for his going-away party but my MIL wouldn't do it.

So, the hospice people said my dad quite possibly might not live through last weekend. He proved them wrong.

I called him yesterday (Wednesday), and he couldn't talk very long because he was having martinis with his granddaughter (my niece), along with my brother and sister-in-law. Dad stopped cigars quite some time ago, but he still enjoys a good martini (well, actually a gin Gibson with an onion). He lets my brother mix the drinks nowadays, though.

My dad has always known how to enjoy life...and he's having a good time on the way out, too.

Cheers!

Have seen some of your photos on Facebook Rap. Definitely a good place to recuperate. Y'all have had a lot of challenges in the health department over the past several years. Hope you both get a little (big)break in the 'action' regarding health concerns.

Glad to hear Tommy is better, Pete. Would be wonderful if he especially, and all of your family, could get a bit of a long respite.

Thanks, everyone. Yes, Janie, "On a Day Like Today" fits my situation very well right now. What a wonderful song!
    And Forever's is a gift you're forever giving away.


I thought my dad might die this last weekend, the weekend of the Indianapolis 500 race. Until I was nine, we lived in Detroit and my dad worked for a company that sponsored Indy racecars. He spent every May in Indianapolis, and he loved it. He took me to races in Detroit, and I got to see the pits in action and meet the drivers and mechanics - and they all seemed to know my dad.

After we moved to Wisconsin, on Memorial Day we would take down the storm windows and wash all the windows and put up the screens - while listening to the race on the radio. I loved working with my dad, and I loved listening to the race with him. Heck, he even got me to enjoy painting the house with him.

I think that's the greatest tribute I can give to my dad - that I have always enjoyed being in his company.

-Joe-
