And another one Bites the Dust......

......Retired Army Veteran----1......Gremlin------0

An 80-year-old Chicago man shot and killed an armed man who broke into his two-story house in a pre-dawn home invasion Wednesday on the city's West Side.

At about 5:20 a.m., the homeowner and his wife, also in her 80s, discovered the intruder entering their home through a back door. The homeowner, who had a gun, confronted and killed the burglar on the doorstep, police said. Cops said the intruder also fired his gun during the struggle.

"It's a good thing they had a gun, or they might be dead," said Curtis Thompson, who lives next door to the couple, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.

Neighbors described the elderly couple, who both walk with canes, as pillars of the community in Garfield Park, where home invasions have been all too frequent.

Their neighbor, Shaquite Johnson, told MyFoxChicago that the two are "heroes" for fighting off the attacker — and that the shooting means there is "one less criminal" walking the streets.
"They don't bother no one, so why would anyone do that to them?" she said.

Relatives of the couple told the Sun Times that the man is an Army veteran, his wife a former nurse. Police said neither the man nor the woman was injured in the attack.

The assailant, who was described by police as being in his 30s, was found slumped on the back doorstep of the couple's house, removed four hours after the shooting, the Sun Times reported.

No charges have been filed against the homeowner, but Chicago currently has a statute outlawing the possession of handguns. Its legality is currently being decided by the U.S. Supreme Court.

A high-profile Chicago attorney has already stepped forward offering to represent the man pro bono if he faces charges for possessing a weapon.

"Self-defense isn't just a right, it's a duty," said attorney Joel Brodsky. "If this man is prosecuted for saving his own life it's not just a travesty, it's justice turned inside out."

.....And a big YAY for you Mr. Brodsky.
That's the News.

Bwah Ha ha ha ha.......

Owl watchers spend two days observing plastic models
Husband and wife Ken and Fay Jackson couldn't believe their eyes when they spotted an owl in daylight on the roof of a block of flats opposite their Torquay home. The not-so-wise nocturnal bird had obviously confused day for night as it sat waiting for its prey on the roof across the way from the Jacksons' home at Waldon Point in St Luke's Road.

Fay said: "Ken was outside on the balcony in the morning when he said there was an owl on the roof opposite. Maureen, our cleaner, came in and said she could see two. I said, 'That would be the pair, then.'

"We kept looking but they weren't moving much. I thought, they do stalk their prey but didn't think they would find many mice up there." The owls were checked at various times through the day and Fay even tried to contact wildlife expert Brian Carter to investigate and take a photograph.

Good job she couldn't get hold of him. A check with the binoculars as the day came to a close revealed the owls were not all they were made out to be. They weren't clever, day-time stalkers. They were fake. "They must be up there to keep the gulls away," said Fay, who is usually regarded as a wise bird.

Now me? Well I'm going to search the neighborhood for Flamingos...
The dumbest stuf just cracks me up. TWO DAYS?....

What a friggin' weekend.......

Good news....well, some fun....and really Bad news....Let's go with Bad first and get it out of the way, I can't dwell on it.....

Remember back in October when I announced the arrival of our new little Kitteh Panzer? Yup, the adorable gray fluffy guy who would nap on Uber the Labrador's back while he laid on the couch?

That's the bad news. His tummy was swollen as though he had somehow ingested a grapefruit. Dragn noticed that he hadn't pooped in a few days, so off to the Vet we went Saturday morning, mostly expecting to find that he had swallowed a penny or some such.......

Nope. He has a condition called FIP, Feline Infectious Peritinis.....Incurable and about 100%fatal in Kittens his age.....The Doc took a couple samples, to test but he's pretty darn sure of the diagnosis.....

He sent us home with the little dude, Panzer is not in any Wife sure is. And so am I...just a dammnable cute and loving Kitteh, and not a darn thing we can do but to make him as comfortable as we can......

He thinks M'Lady Dragn is his momma, just wants to be around's pretty darned close to being heartbreaking....but that's the way of the world. We come .....we go....and maybe, just maybe, my Grandfather was right in his Beliefs....We Come Back....

Bottom line, is we probably have the little fellow for a few more weeks at best....I'll take him back to the Vet when the time is near....if needed.....

Ya know what?

I'm not going to post the good news/ fun in this writing....not respectful, don't you know.
Be well,

I get some interesting e-mails......

.....from Interesting Folks.......

"I just finished a new internet video about illegal immigration and
I want you to be one of the first to see it. It's "Come to the U.S.A."
and it's been on You Tube less than 24 hours. Just click this link.


If you like it.......forward it to everyone in your address book and ask
them to do the same thing until everyone in American has seen this
video and gotten the message that illegal immigration is not the
way to "Come to the U.S.A."

Ray Stevens"

Thank G-d for Ray Stevens....

And then there's this........

Study: Viagra May Be Linked To Hearing Loss

Researcher At University Of Alabama-Birmingham Studies 11,000 Men Over The Age Of 40.......

Docs Urge Caution .......

It's the little blue pill that works wonders for the sex life. But does taking Viagra increase the risk of hearing loss?

"Say What?"

This piece of crap....... an ovation after coming into OUR House and telling US how to run OUR Country. Blamed US for the guns in Mexico. Blamed US for the drug trade. Blamed US for being Rascist for wanting to keep OUR Border secure and to stem the tide of illegal immigation.

At the same time, admitting that Mexico is , well let's just say, rather stern in their treatment of their own illegals........

Yah, I know, Blitzer doesn't deserve the name Wolf, but give credit where it's due...he's the only MSM'er to go there......

But then, you have Tom McClintock.....yup, from this here state of California.....Too bad it seems like he's speaking to an empty House.......

But then.........

As I said in the previous post......well, things are more....well, lets say "Interesting" around the Lair nowadays.......

Case in point is this little video, filmed an hour ago, of Kitteh- Ransom, and Doggeh the Little- Tiberius, just spending time on a Sunday afternoon......

Yah, Buddy, that's My House....the Lair. It's the way we roll......heh
H/T to Dragn for the filming and editing today.......

Just an Aside.......

.....for you new Folks.....

I've been doing this for close to three years, and believe it or not.....I used to write. Not necessarilly good writing, but I wrote.......from the perspective of a heartbroken Man.....

Twenty years of marriage......*POOF*....gone, and the internal road to recovery, and rediscovering exactly who I am......

It went well for me, having that pain and internal review....I'm more content and grounded now than I have been in twenty years.......

Unfortunately for those who have followed and enjoyed the Journey from Angst to Happiness, it has obviously affected my writing....I feel almost obligated to post something most days.....

But being "happy" and having a Life, once again filled with things to do that I Decide need to be done, having a Wife and Partner that "almost" nderstands me....well, that's a bit of the reason for the "cute" postings. I've had a bit of a problem writing from the Heart because, well.......

This Wonderful Life is new to me. Having a Partner, Beautiful, Loving, TOUGH, and Empathetic .....well it's just a whole new world to me.

I'm going to attempt to share that with you....How to manage two completely different People, from different Generations, with Five Teenage Boys...."Cubs", together.....and how wonderful it can be.

Exhausting, by the way......So Here's a little one.....Notice things.

Yesterday morning, Saturday, I woke up late...about hear a conversation between M'Lady Dragn and 'Lil Wollfie.....

"Remember when Uber,*the Labrador*, was just a baby, and how little he was?"

"Yah, Honey, he was small enough to sit in my hand....."

Well I walked through the conversation, and what hit me was that we, As a Family, can now have "Remember Whens"......

Ok, call me'll probably be right....

"Remember Whens" are important, and realizing that this was the first time Lil Wollf and Dragn had one.......

I teared up.

Two years since we started dating.....a couple months to our first wedding anniversary....She Love my Cubs.....I Love her Boyz.....They all Love Her.....

Can Life get better?


The Old Man........

From my Little Baby Brother Wolf, whom I Love.....

As I came out of the supermarket that sunny day, pushing my cart of
groceries towards my car, I saw an old man with the hood of his car up and a
lady sitting inside the car, with the door open.

The old man was looking at the engine. I put my groceries away in my car
and continued to watch the old gentleman from about twenty five feet away.

I saw a young man in his early twenties with a grocery bag in his arm,
walking towards the old man. The old gentleman saw him coming too and took a
few steps towards him.

I saw the old gentleman point to his open hood and say something. The
young man put his grocery bag into what looked like a brand new Cadillac
Escalade and then turn back to the old man and I heard him yell at the old
gentleman saying,

'You shouldn't even be allowed to drive a car at your age.' And then with
a wave of his hand, he got in his car and peeled rubber out of the parking

I saw the old gentleman pull out his handkerchief and mop his brow as he
went back to his car and again looked at the engine.

He then went to his wife and spoke with her and appeared to tell her it
would be okay. I had seen enough and I approached the old man. He saw me
coming and stood straight and as I got near him I said, 'Looks like you're
having a problem.'

He smiled sheepishly and quietly nodded his head.

I looked under the hood myself and knew that whatever the problem was, it was beyond me.

Looking around I saw a gas station up the road and told the old man that I would be
right back... I drove to the station and went inside and saw three
attendants working on cars.

I approached one of them and related the problem the old
man had with his car and offered to pay them if they could follow me back
down and help him
The old man had pushed the heavy car under the shade of a tree and
appeared to be comforting his wife.

When he saw us he straightened up and thanked me for my help. As the mechanics diagnosed the problem (overheated engine),I spoke with the old gentleman.

When I shook hands with him earlier, he had noticed my Marine Corps ring
and had commented about it, telling me that he had been a Marine too.

I nodded and asked the usual question, 'What outfit did you serve with?'

He had mentioned that he served with the first Marine Division at Tarawa,
Saipan, Iwo Jima and Guadalcanal.

He had hit all the big ones and retired from the Corps after the war was

As we talked we heard the car engine come on and saw the mechanics
lower the hood.

They came over to us as the old man reached for his wallet,but was stopped by me and I told him I would just put the bill on my AAA card.

He still reached for the wallet and handed me a card that I assumed had
his name and address on it and I stuck it in my pocket.

We all shook hands all around again and I said my goodbye's to his wife.

I then told the two mechanics that I would follow them back up to the

Once at the station I told them that they had interrupted their own
jobs to come along with me and help the old man. I said I wanted to pay
for the help, but they refused to charge me.

One of them pulled out a card from his pocket looking exactly like the
card the old man had given to me. Both of the men told me then that they were
Marine Corps Reserves.

Once again we shook hands all around and as I was leaving, one of them told me I should look at the card the old man had given to me.

I said I would and drove off.

For some reason I had gone about two blocks when I pulled over and took
the card out of my pocket and looked at it for a long, long time. The name of
the old gentleman was on the card in golden leaf and under his

'Congressional Medal of Honor Society.'

I sat there motionless looking at the card and reading it over and over.

I looked up from the card and smiled to no one but myself and marveled that
on this day four Marines had all come together because one of us needed

He was an old man all right, but it felt good to have stood next to greatness and courage and an honor to have been in his presence.

Remember, OLD men like him gave you FREEDOM for America .

Thanks to those who served...& those who supported them.

America is not at war. The U.S. Military is at war.

America is at the Mall.

Remember, Freedom isn't Free, thousands have paid the price so you can
enjoy what you have today.

M'Lady, Wolf the Elder and I are going to visit a Great Old Man over Memorial Day.

545 People........

By Charlie Reese

Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then
campaign against them.

Have you ever wondered, if both the Democrats and the Republicans are
against deficits, WHY do we have deficits?

Have you ever wondered, if all the politicians are against inflation and high
taxes, WHY do we have inflation and high taxes?

You and I don't propose a federal budget. The president does.

You and I don't have the Constitutional authority to vote on appropriations.
The House of Representatives does.

You and I don't write the tax code, Congress does.

You and I don't set fiscal policy, Congress does.

You and I don't control monetary policy, the Federal Reserve Bank does.

One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one president, and nine Supreme
Court justices equates to 545 human beings out of the 300 million are directly,
legally, morally, and individually responsible for the domestic problems that
plague this country.

I excluded the members of the Federal Reserve Board because that problem
was created by the Congress. In 1913, Congress delegated its Constitutional
duty to provide a sound currency to a federally chartered, but private, central

I excluded all the special interests and lobbyists for a sound reason.. They
have no legal authority. They have no ability to coerce a senator, a
congressman, or a president to do one cotton-picking thing. I don't care if
they offer a politician $1 million dollars in cash. The politician has the power
to accept or reject it. No matter what the lobbyist promises, it is the legislator's
responsibility to determine how he votes.

Those 545 human beings spend much of their energy convincing you that
what they did is not their fault. They cooperate in this common con regardless
of party.
What separates a politician from a normal human being is an excessive
amount of gall. No normal human being would have the gall of a Speaker,
who stood up and criticized the President for creating deficits.. The president
can only propose a budget. He cannot force the Congress to accept it.

The Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land, gives sole
responsibility to the House of Representatives for originating and
approving appropriations and taxes. Who is the speaker of the House?
Nancy Pelosi. She is the leader of the majority party. She and fellow House
members, not the president, can approve any budget they want. If the
president vetoes it, they can pass it over his veto if they agree to.

It seems inconceivable to me that a nation of 300 million can not replace
545 people who stand convicted -- by present facts -- of incompetence
and irresponsibility. I can't think of a single domestic problem that is
not traceable directly to those 545 people. When you fully grasp the
plain truth that 545 people exercise the power of the federal government,
then it must follow that what exists is what they want to exist.

If the tax code is unfair, it's because they want it unfair.

If the budget is in the red, it's because they want it in the red .

If the Army & Marines are in IRAQ, it's because they want them in IRAQ

If they do not receive social security but are on an elite retirement plan
not available to the people, it's because they want it that way.

There are no insoluble government problems.

Do not let these 545 people shift the blame to bureaucrats, whom they
hire and whose jobs they can abolish; to lobbyists, whose gifts and
advice they can reject; to regulators, to whom they give the power to
regulate and from whom they can take this power. Above all, do not
let them con you into the belief that there exists disembodied mystical
forces like "the economy," "inflation," or "politics" that prevent them
from doing what they take an oath to do.

Those 545 people, and they alone, are responsible.

They, and they alone, have the power.

They, and they alone, should be held accountable by the people who are
their bosses.

Provided the voters have the gumption to manage their own employees.

We should vote all of them out of office and clean up their mess!

Charlie Reese is a former columnist of the Orlando Sentinel Newspaper.

What you do with this article now that you have read it.......... Is up to you.

If you Blog, repost it, or link back to me here, or e-mail to your Frinds.

It can't be said enough, these 545 People....Work For Us.

Mohave Cross......

....What Low Life, Lympian Libtard did this????

LOS ANGELES - Thieves have stolen a cross in the Mojave Desert that was built to honor Americans who died in war, less than two weeks after the U.S. Supreme Court allowed the religious symbol to remain on federal land.

The 7-foot-high cross was stolen late Sunday or early Monday by thieves who cut the metal bolts that attached the symbol to a rock in the sprawling desert preserve, National Park Service spokeswoman Linda Slater said.

Authorities had no immediate motive for the theft but Slater said possible suspects range from scrap metal scavengers to people "with an interest in the case," Slater said.

The U.S. Justice Department was looking into the case, and a veterans group planned to offer a $25,000 reward to help catch the thieves.

"The American Legion expects whoever is responsible for this vile act to be brought to justice," said Clarence Hill, the group's national commander. "While the memorial has been attacked, the fight will continue to ensure that veterans memorials will remain sacrosanct."

This is an outrage, akin to desecrating people's graves," said Kelly Shackelford, president of the Liberty Institute, which represents the caretakers of the Mojave Desert War Memorial. "It's a disgraceful attack on the selfless sacrifice of our veterans. We will not rest until this memorial is re-installed."

Wollf is officially really Pi$$ed off.....

Thank G-d.......

......for Justice has Prevailed!

Not Guilty.

A Virginia military jury found a Navy SEAL not guilty Thursday on all charges he punched an Iraqi suspected in the 2004 killings of four U.S. contractors in Fallujah.

"I'm really happy right now," Matthew McCabe, the Navy SEAL, told Fox News shortly after hearing the outcome of the court martial. "It's an amazing feeling. I'm on cloud nine right now."

McCabe, a special operations petty officer second class, called the proceedings "troubling at times," adding "having your career on the line is not an easy thing to handle.

McCabe was the third and final Navy SEAL to be prosecuted in the case.

He had faced charges of assault, making a false official statement and dereliction of performance of duty for willfully failing to safeguard a detainee.

McCabe was accused of punching last year is Ahmed Hashim Abed, the suspected mastermind of the grisly killings six years ago.

Abed was captured in a surprise raid by the Navy SEALs in Fallujah, Iraq, in September of last year.

The murders he’s accused of masterminding were a turning point in the Iraq war, galvanizing the U.S. military to launch a major offensive against the insurgents in Fallujah.

The bodies of the four Americans were burning and dragged through the streets, and two of them were hanged from a bridge over the Euphrates River

Read the rest of the story at FoxNews

Not to mention that I Obviously thought bringing these Heroes up on Charges was a travesty.

Side Note: The whole trial was based on Abed's claim that The SEAL punched him in the face, giving him a bloody lip.

I spent some time on San Clemente, home of SEAL BUDS Camp. Tiny, isolated Military Base with nothing to do after hours but Fish, surf, bowl in a three lane hall, or imbibe at the "Salty Crab"....

Sometimes, things got just a "little" exciting in there. Ol'Wollf has seen the result of a "punch" from a SEAL.

Gives more than a bloody lip Folks.......

Two pieces of life advice for you younger Fellows:

I get E-Mails......

.....And by gosh, some of them have simply got to be shared......with my additions as always.....

When I was a kid, adults used to bore me to tears with their tedious diatribes about how hard things were. When they were growing up; what with walking twenty-five miles to school every morning…. Uphill…Barefoot… BOTH ways… yadda, yadda, yadda

And I remember promising myself that when I grew up,there was no way in Hell I was going to lay a bunch of crap like that on my kids about how hard I had it and how easy they’ve got it!

But now that I’m at the ripe old age of 56, with 12 and 17 year old Sons, I can’t help but look around and notice the youth of today. You’ve got it so easy! I mean, compared to my childhood, you live in a darn Utopia! And I hate to say it, but you kids today, you don’t know how good you’ve got it!

I mean, when I was a kid we didn’t have the Internet. If we wanted to know something, we had to go to the damn library and look it up ourselves, in the card catalog!! Using the Dewey Decimal System....aaaagh.There was no email!!

We had to actually write somebody a letter- with a pen! Then you had to walk all the way across the street and put it in the mailbox, and it would take like a week to get there! Stamps were 10 cents!

Child Protective Services didn’t care if our parents beat us. As a matter of fact, the parents of all my friends also had permission to kick our butts!

*Thanks Mr. Salazar.....oh, and Adults didn't have First names until you were out of Boot Camp.......* Nowhere was safe!

There were no MP3’s or Napsters or iTunes! If you wanted to steal music, you had to
hitchhike to the record store and shoplift it yourself!

Or you had to wait around all day to tape it off the radio, and the DJ would usually talk over the beginning and @#*%it all up! There were no CD players! We had tape decks in our car..We’d play our favorite tape and “eject” it when finished, and then the tape would come undone rendering it useless. Cause, hey, that’s how we rolled, Baby! Dig?

We didn’t have fancy crap like Call Waiting! If you were on the phone and somebody else called, they got a busy signal, that’s it!

There weren’t any freakin’ cell phones either. If you left the house,you just didn’t make a darn call or receive one. You actually had to be out of touch with your “friends”. OH MY GOSH !!!

Think of the horror… not being in touch with someone 24/7!!!

And then there’s TEXTING. Yeah, right .Please!

You kids have no idea how annoying you are. And we didn’t have fancy Caller ID either! When the phone rang, you had no idea who it was! It could be your school, your parents, your boss, your bookie, your drug dealer, the collection agent…you just didn’t know!!!

You had to pick it up and take your chances, mister!

We didn’t have any fancy PlayStation or Xbox video games with high resolution 3-D graphics! We had the Atari 2600!

With games like ‘Space Invaders’ and ‘Asteroids’. Your screen guy was a little square! You actually had to use your imagination!!!

And there were no multiple levels or screens, it was just one screen… Forever! And you could never win. The game just kept getting harder and harder and faster and faster until you died!

Just like LIFE!

You had to use a little book called a TV Guide to find out what was on! You were screwed when it came to channel surfing! You had to get off your ass and walk over to the TV to change the channel!!! NO REMOTES!!! Oh, no,what’s the world coming to?!?!

There was no Cartoon Network either! You could only get cartoons on Saturday morning.

Do you hear what I’m saying? We had to wait ALL WEEK for cartoons, you spoiled little rat-finks!

And we didn’t have microwaves. If we wanted to heat something up, we had to use the stove! Imagine that!

And our parents told us to stay outside and play… all day long. Oh, no,no electronics to soothe and comfort. And if you came back inside… you were doing chores!

And car seats – oh,please!

Mom threw you in the back seat and you hung on.

If you were lucky, you got the “safety arm” across the chest at the last moment if she had to stop suddenly, and if your head hit the dashboard, well that was your fault for calling “shot gun” in the first place!

See! That’s exactly what I’m talking about! You kids today have got it too easy. You’re spoiled rotten! You guys wouldn’t have lasted five minutes back then.

But, But.......

......They're just Here for a better life for their Families!!!!!

....Except for the one's who shoot at Deputies......

Five men suspected of smuggling drugs across the border ambushed a Pinal County sheriff's deputy Friday in a remote area south of Phoenix, underscoring the border-related violence that has catapulted Arizona and its new immigration law onto the national stage.

The Pinal Sheriff's department told The Associated Press that the hunt into the early morning hours Saturday but no arrests had been made.

The rugged desert area where the shooting took place, near the junction of Interstate 8 and Arizona 84 in south-central Arizona, is considered a high-traffic drug- and human-smuggling corridor.

A massive hunt of 100 square miles that included helicopters with night-vision equipment and more than 200 officers, including SWAT teams, from 13 agencies was still pursuing the shooters late Friday.

More than one helicopter came under fire during the evening as officers rescued Deputy Louie Puroll, who had been shot with an AK-47-type weapon around 4 p.m., according to the Sheriff's Office.

Puroll suffered a flesh wound above his kidney that tore off a chunk of skin. He was treated at Casa Grande Regional Medical Center and released Friday night.

"Here we see the tactics have changed and become more dangerous," Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu said. "This has reached a critical mass for law enforcement."

It ain't "immigrant", it ain't "alien", it's ILLEGAL, I sure hope that in the future, if you shoot at one of ours, they kill you.

The Gulf Oil Spill......

.....Because sometimes thinking outside the Box might just work.......

Much Less expensive than any of the alternatives. a 20lb bag picks up 600lbs of oil and costs about $30 retail.

Also can be disposed as solid (not hazardous) waste. Land farmed, composted, used for fuel, and 95% of oil can be recovered if desired.

There's got to be an answer.....Load up the C130s
