  I hope he never gets out of jail. Of course I can't tell HIM that because, well, I might hurt his feelings.   >:(
Local and World News, NOT political / The Antioch TN Church Shooter
« Last post by pop pop on Today at 02:29:08 PM »
The church shooter has been found guilty on over at least 43 counts with the biggie being 1st degree murder. He will get 51 years in prison, for the 1st degree charge, and the jury is now deliberating whether or not he will become eligible for parole. The death penalty was not on the table. Why, I don't know. Could be the mental thing?

The judge will add to his total years in prison on the other 42 counts, later.

Edited to add; The media reported that some fireworks occurred between the lady judge and the lawyers during the trial. Supposedly it was over what the jury was allowed to hear.

You know the most interesting thing I noticed about this above posted list and the Handgunlaw's List?
I do not think any of the listed states have had what is commonly referred to as a "Mass Shooting"??
I have not verified this and will attempt to do so . . . .  .
Anybody else notice anything that I may have missed???

Rest up. Heart surgery will knock you out for months of recovery.
But if there's at least a 50-50 chance of a good result, it's worth the risk!

The point of it all is to live a comfortable life, for as long as it's possible.
Quality of life is the real issue: There has to be an advantage for you (and your family) in the process.
Becoming a living, breathing vegetable is not a good outcome, but a return to almost-normal would be absolutely priceless.

Please keep us informed!

Things were reallly looking up. I had a promotion and increases responsibilities at work. Thins were hecti, but going along as I acclimated to my new role. And, then the pain started. Increased pain in my right leg forced me to seek out some medical help.

You may, or may not know, that in 2001 I ahd what is called a "Fem Fem" that is otherwise known as a Femoral Bypass. In my case, it was a tube tht was inserted from my right Femoral to my left femoral. A short time later and I was back in the saddle for quite a few years - until 2017.
In 2017, I was admitted to the hospital to have some damage repaired to the graft, and a new graft inserted into my right femoral just above the knee. Again, life was good and I continued on.On May 3rd of this year, I was having a problem with my right leg. After meeting with my cardiovascular surgeon, I was going, once again, under the knife. It was not to be so peasant this time.  A graft was placed in my left calf and a new graft replaced teh previous one on my  right side.  As I write this, the staples have been removed from my left calf and the staples i my right leg will be removed on Monday.
But, that's not the bad. During my stay, it was discovered that I was suffering from some heart problems; something they found  during a stress test. They (the "medicals") oushed very hard to give me heart surgery right after the "Fem" surgery. That was something that I turned down until I heal from this go-a-round They tried fear tactics; "You could have a heart attack!"  That old dog don't hunt with me.
Anyway, I may have to undergo some sort of heart surgery that has not yet been clearly defined except that they would put stints in certain places. 

Without going into detail, let's just say that I have some serious decisions to make regarding all of this.
I am still waiting to be cleared from this latest go-a-round to return to work. So, I am laying around the house, healing, and trying not to be concerned with loosing everything that has been gained in the last year; work gains as well as financial.  However, I will say that retirement is looking better, as the stress of trying to meet too many people's expectations with no resources to do so is getting to be somewhat over-whelming.

Taking a break now.
