    There are only three types of people in this world. Those that can count, and those that can't!

    Post 14 first paragraph gets me. It reminds me that all my little worries really are insignificant, and that I should enjoy this short but wonderful life while I can.

    It's funny what form life's teachers can come in, right?

    Yeah, he got dealt a lousy hand alright. But he accepted what he had, the best that he could, and simply got on with life. Once he knew the expected outcome he grabbed life by the ears and wrung out every bit of living he could out of it. In the end he got more out of his short life than many get out of a much longer one.

    I still miss the 40 odd messages from him each day. Monday at dinner time always gets me though. How he could tell from all the way up there that I cooked mince for dinner, .... Oh, and on that subject, I fondly remember the messages about my daughter.

    We were fucking sucky matchmakers GM. Good on ya Toby. I reckon you will never truly lay down on this forum ya lanky ballbag.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    I'm still miffed that Dougie spotted that they were following each other all round the forum before I did.

    I read the thread for the first time this afternoon... You guys did an amazing job of supporting an obviously amazing young fella through some really hard stuff... I must admit a couple of times the light from my phone must have been too bright cause it made my eyes water... Every day we must remind ourselves how freaking lucky we are, and grab every precious moment by the balls...
    Thank you for that reminder...
