A quick update, in bullet points because, despite my robust, 65 year old vigor, I am about to drop from exhaustion.
  • My great thanks to RgrF for reposting.
  • I am beyond ecstatic to report that my run of living out of my car was mercifully brief. Tonight I sleep in a bed, after the blessing that is a hot shower.
  • Pro Tip: Sitting/sleeping in the seat of a car for more or less 72ish hours? Don’t do that. You get an actual bed (bucket seat?) sore in a really not nice place.
  • More thanks to btfc for his alert to the Disney+ $1.99 for three months deal. Between the hours of midnight and 7:00am, I am now caught up on much of the Marvel MCU oeuvre (Don’t miss “She Hulk”; Tatiana Maslany is amazing).

It is no exaggeration to say that without the support and humbling generosity this community has shown, I truly do not know where I would be right now.

I have a long, long way to go, still. This is only the beginning. The beast in the pit of my stomach is still very much there. But I have my own beast. The 8,000 pound gorilla that is this community. My friends. My family. MRF.

Thank you.

You’ll also be glad to know that Ted Kaczynski’s possible twin brother did not in the end set my car (and me) on fire in the parking lot of a Rite-Aid at 4:00am.

It’s a long story.

National Suicide Prevention Lifeline
As of July 16, 2022, the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is now available by simply dialing 988. The previous number, 1-800-273-8255, will remain active.

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

Added my little bit to the help pool.

Please, anyone here everyone here, don't hesitate to ask for help if you need it. The 8,000 pound gorilla exists by the sum total of the 180 or 280 pound ones that make up the community here.

Glad to hear of a leveling off of bad fortune.

Be well, BB.






I am that Masked Man.

All you can do, is all you can do.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

Best wishes for a great recovery!
