I can totally relate, Dan. Hope this helps.

Don't Shoot the Piano Player

A young man in the Old West wanted to be the best gunfighter alive. He practiced every day, but knew he was still missing something that would make him the best.
One night, as he was sitting in a saloon, he spotted an old man who had the reputation of being the greatest gunfighter in his day.
So the young fella went over to the old man and told him his dream. The old man looked him up and down and said, "I have a suggestion that is sure to help."
"Tell me, tell me," said the young man.
"Tie the bottom of your holster lower onto your leg."
"Will that make me a better gunfighter?"
"Definitely," said the old man.
The young gunman did what he was told, then in a flash he drew his gun and shot the bow tie off the piano player.
"Wow that really helped. Do you have any more suggestions?"
"Yeah, if you cut a notch in the top of your holster where the hammer hits, the gun will come out smoother."
"Will that make me a better gunfighter?"
"It sure will," said the old man.
The young guy did what he was told, drew his gun in a blur and shot the cuff-link off the piano player.
"This is really helping me. Is there anything else you can share with me?
"One more thing," said the old man, "Get that can of axle grease over there in the corner and rub it all over your gun."
The young man didn't hesitate but started putting the grease on the barrel of the gun.
"No, the whole gun, handle and everything," said the old man.
"Will it make me a better gunfighter?"
"No," said the old man, "but when Wyatt Earp gets done playing that piano he's going to shove that gun up your ass, and it won't hurt nearly as much."

Dan Gerous:
Thanks everybody. Went to the funeral, yesterday and I was OK until an honor guard walked up an saluted the flag-draped coffin while "Taps" played. That was kind of hard. But, he had a good send off, many stories were told and it's all good, now.
"If I'm smiling it's cause I'm thinking of something naughty orevil. If I'm laughing it's 'cause I've already done it!"

Best send off I ever saw was for my friend Stu Kettle. Steve was a couple of weeks younger than I but died of colon cancer in Jan 2015. At the 2015 Grand Muster his ashes were shot out of 7 muzzle loading mortar's. It was great! There was just this big cloud of Steve and black powder smoke. His daughter went into labor on the way home from there and his grandchild was born the next morning.

Rye Miles:
The send off I remember the most was a musician, a drummer who sang also. His body was filled with cancer and he was no more than 30 yrs old. Very sad. His wife also sang in the band he was in. While he was still well enough to sing he made a recording of him singing "This song's for you, by Elton John. His wife played it at the funeral. Not one dry eye in the place! :'(
