    Default Rough week

    My apologies for not being around in the past few days. A childhood friend of mine was murdered in an attempted robbery Monday evening. This week has been a tough one to get through. We have his visitation tomorrow night and funeral on Saturday. A large reward has been raised for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible, and we are hoping and praying that they will be caught soon. I do hope all is well with everyone else, and for those who are gigging this weekend I hope you bring the house down.

    That’s absolutely terrible. I hope you can find peace at this time. Take all the time off you need. I lost a family member about a month ago the weekend before my exams so I know how you feel and it sucks. My prayers go out to you buddy.

    I'm going to be good, just having to get over the shock. Please remember his family in your prayers. They have a long road ahead of them.

    I'll bet it is. DW lives down there.

    All prayers out to his family. I've heard that he was a really good guy.

    Yes. Grew up with him. He would have given the shirt off of his back and the last dollar in his wallet to help anyone.

    Times like this, I remember what my Dad told me on his death bed (cancer). He said he wasn’t ready to go, but part of him was glad that he wouldn’t be around to witness where this world was headed.

    What scares me most is the absolute disregard and lack of respect for the sanctity of human life.

    Pieces of garbage should have already been in prison for previous charges.

    FWIW, I cried like a baby when Jeff said "We got it. We got it. We got justice for Brandon!"

    I love my dudes more than anyone knows.

    Here's the pending charges from another county for the two sacks of you know what.

    I don't understand it neither Ricky. When exactly did girls (I say girls because it's mainly the younger girls under 17) become "tough". When did murder take the place of a behind the school fight? There were fights almost everyday, most were broken up before any real damage happened, yet there was a murder in my old high school about 25 years ago when this stupidity known as "props" become a big thing. Respect is earned, it doesn't belong to anyone by divine right.

    These things, and many more, (I could write a book on just the idiocy I've seen in my old hometown from 2005 to when I got the hell out of Dodge in 2012) is my personal opinion of when all this crap started.
