Filled orders for molds and Tower of Power stands.  Put wood in the outdoor furnace.  Got the Virtually Indestructible ball down for Fudge and he blasted it all over the south lawn and into the woods, twice.  Loaded some C45Spl ammo for next season and some 45 Colt also.  Got things ready to load some 16ga bp ammo to kill KDs.

But mostly, I looked back on last season.  My bride going off to heaven last July 19 took much of my time, and it was time well spent.  Now, it's just me and Fudge.  Fudge is a 10 month old chocolate lab and my companion.  I'm learning how to cook and much of what I learn will transfer well to campfire cooking.  I missed you pards.  I'll be back, guns blazing and telling lies with panache.  Life goes on.

Here's Fudge.  He's my companion.  He makes me smile.

Dick,

I only know you through CasCity.com but I feel a connection because of our mutual interest in Old West guns and related matters. I can also say, because I have a wife that fills the empty place in me, I can't imagine loosing her and what that would do to me. My heartfelt condolences go out to you.

And, as a dog lover I can imagine how much comfort Fudge is to you. God bless and keep both of you.

Fudge will definitely keep you moving and occupied.  That's a good thing right now.

Fudge likes the aroma of black powder burning.  Problem is, he's a retriever and he thinks I never miss.  So, he brings back something, no matter what.

Don't know what I'd do w/o my wife. Probably follow in your path. I hope Fudge is OK with gunfire and doesn't try to retrieve steel. It's kinda hard on teeth.

In 2006 after 30 years, 6 months and 6 days of living adventures you only dream of  l lost my pardner, first mate and best friend. I still miss her.
Dick I know where you are and all I can say is it gets better as time goes by but it never gets to be as it was.
There is a hole in your life that can never be filled.
Give Fudge a big hug from me.
Sincerely

I tell my wife that on a daily basis. She has been my rock and my joy in the few short years of our marriage. When I was diagnosed with stage four cancer eight years ago, she was my anchor and I would have been lost without her support.

After a month long bout with some kind of bad bug, I went for a 10 km x-country ski with our dogs today. All I have to do is step out the door and put on my skis.

My wife periodically attends quilting seminars and visits her elderly mother on the coast. When she is gone, the dogs and I miss her, but they help fill the gap. They love life and show me what is important - having something to eat, a warm place to sleep and someone who cares.

In return they offer unconditional love and loyalty. But it's not the same as that of a life partner. I pray to God that I go first.


Don't know what I'd do w/o my wife. Probably follow in your path. I hope Fudge is OK with gunfire and doesn't try to retrieve steel. It's kinda hard on teeth.
