The holiday season for Grumpy Old Fart was not good.
From his comment at Kevin's blog, The Smallest Minority
"On December 1st, my mother's house burned to the ground, with all my worldly goods in it (I had been living there for the last several years taking care of her while she was fighting cancer). On December 8th, a week later almost to the minute, she passed away at the age of 82.
Thanks, I have been badly needing a moment of Zen."
This would be the time of year I used to contribute to Wounded Warriors or the 2nd Amendment foundation. Wounded Warriors pissed me off with their anti gun owners statements in the press. The 2nd Amendment Foundation's telemarketers piss me off every time they call telling me they'll give me till x day to donate. So, they get bupkiss.
Instead, I kicked in a donation for GOF here. My little bit bumped the total just over $1K. I know the gun blogosphere community can make that total better.
Go donate a few bucks.
Merry Christmas. Happy New Year. God Bless you and yours.
