Sad of Heart for the news of BIG HAMMER - but

HAPPY BEYOUND BOUNDS to have the opportunity to post me immense saddeness on his passing. Pure selfishnesh on my part as I beieve that I did post in these hallowed halls that I too had actually obtained ab "OMEGA" even last week, and with he quick help on a plunging needle in the chest I am once again here to enjoy the amazing warmth that YOU fine denizens can generate in an old enpty, hollow heart.

If my typing is a bit "off" please know the Doctors assure me it is normal to loose brain "power/control/etc" with these events.

I feel compelled to say that I was within minutes, or less, of reaching a voluntery "OEMGA"point ( number THREE). Having to make the choice to literally risk ones life in an absolute sense is NOT, NOT, NOT somwthing I would wish of a real human being. BELIEVE me, OMEGA is the END, there ain't any pretty, white bouncing Unicorns farting sparkle dust out their ass at the Omega point.

Long, but nice story, as to why I was able to back away from that THIRD Omega point (basically I could wait to die a future day rather than that cold, dark morning). They say they can put a ATOMIC bomb on my head (Brain tumor) asusuring THEM that THEY did remove all of the Cancer along with ALL my functioning proptplasm above my shoulder blades. I am opting for an option instead to look for a treatment method involving one or two 22 calibre buttles rather that the BIG BOMB methode. They (Docs) wish we well in finding a 22 calibre bullet source because they know not of such a souch. GOOGLE is your friend however, and I will follow GooGoo down the rabbit whole as far as I can before going back to the Girls.Boys that so strongly believe in BIG BANGS !!!!

Never have I said to TOU ALL that your smallest words you type in here can and DO , yes DO, have such healing powers to one who is as weak as I . THANK YOU FOR YOUR PART IN SAVING MY LIFE, Beautiful People wif a special mention to a good human on the TOON. You know who your are THANK YOU !!!

I am presently in correspondence with Big Hammer's wife who will shortly be giving me the funeral details if anybody wants to make their presence felt - either in body, spirit, flowers or donation.

I'm very disappointed to hear that, AA ... but delighted you're here with us and not in a place where unicorns fart sparkle dust or anything else for that matter. TRAB force cranked up to MAX and pointed squarely in your direction.

Radar ... please give my sincere condolences to Madame BH and assure her that the man himself will always be remembered here.

BIG HAMMER _ R.i.P.

I failed earlier to flatly say that BI HAMMERs words (short/long) were of the type that ALWAYS made my day better. There is nothing more that a "distant" friend can do across the big blue water than give of themselves in the way that LIFTS others to a new height. My sadness to his family in everyway. my support automatically goes with that support. Sounds dumb but I have less brain this week that last - sorry - hope one and all can at least "feel: the thought behind my feeble words.

Regards BH - I too have a "prostrate" problem of several years standing, and with no proof I feel that BH was absolultly true to the "BIG" part of his screen name and that he did NOT stop fighting even unto the end. The "fight" is all we end up with and I will, as I believe BH decided, to FIGHT to the absolute end.

R.I.P. BH - -

Good morning all. Distinct change in the weather as overcast today with a breeze. Maybe the blue skies will come here.

Very sorry to hear about BH.

And in the spirit of the thread:

Rabbit is vile, like slimy, funny-tasting chicken IMHO.

Having another "I am surrounded by mental pygmies" day at work.

Octopussy2 If those people hear you call them that they could very well realise it is a sort of insult.
I used to use the term "intellectual pygmies" as not so many understood the word intellectual as opposed
to mental.

Shouldn't be slimy if it is fresh. Sure you weren't sold something else????

Nice view down the long steps.

My computer fan started off with a knocking.
Happens when dust gets on the blades.
The fix involves a high volume air pump and a suction cleaner.
First mug of tea now completed.
