    In case you don't hear from me for a while.

    I'm currently in Sparrow hospital. I'll be undergoing surgery on both legs to drain infection, as well as a colonoscopy. After that, I have no idea what's next. Any way. I'll let you know how I'm doing after that.

    Gun control isn't about the gun at all.... for those who want gun control it is all about their own fragile egos, their own lack of self esteem, their own inner fears, and most importantly... their own desire to dominate others. And an openly carried gun is a slap in the face to all of those things.

    Answer every question about open carry in Michigan you ever had with one convenient and free book- http://libertyisforeveryone.com/open-carry-resources/

    The complete and utter truth can be challenged from every direction and it will always hold up. Accordingly there are few greater displays of illegitimacy than to attempt to impede free thought and communication.

    Be well Sir! I speak from experience here: the less time spent in the hospital the better .

    Dang... hope they get the infection under control soon... as far as the colonoscopy... that's a BREEZE... I had one last year and it was like a wonderful nap.. I woke up feeling refreshed, if not a bit gassy... lol... But I did not feel a THING. Getting the IV was by far the worst part. Hope they only find good news.

    Well... I thought about my anemic attempt at humor and decided it was in poor taste so I self edited.

    Still sending prayers for ya Al.

    Well, I'm still alive, but the surgeon is apparently concerned about what he found in my legs. Recovery will probably be longer than he first thought. I'm probably not going back to work. And if I'm not careful, I could lose one or both legs.

    I guess I just have to be extra careful.

    I just found out the source of the problem might be a fluid sack that had been discovered in my right knee back in 2002! With luck, since it's now been drained I might not be in such bad shape. But, only time will tell for sure.
