On home defense...

Hey bad guys...if you're feeling emboldened by the fact that I'm on sticks for a bit, just stop on by.

I may be down a leg, but I've still got a leg up.


  1. I'll wait...LOL Between Murphy and that piece... BOTH will take a bite out of your ass!

  2. Heh.

    VW: untest. Make of it what you will. Heh.

  3. "Sticks"?

    Thats how my grandfather used to refer to his crutches.

    I remember one incident when I was about 3 years old, when he removed his prosthesis and forgot to bring his crutches to the chair in which he was sitting (he had been an amputee for only a few months, and had not totally mastered the routine). So he calls to my grandmother, "Could you bring me my sticks, please?"

    My grandmother, who was in the kitchen and outside of my grandfather's field of vision (and vice versa), thought that my grandfather was being indolent, so she yelled at him, "Get them yourself! You're not a cripple!"

    She immediately realized what she had said, and she and my grandfather shared a good long laugh.

    And then, they had to explain it all to me.

    Unfortunately, I will no longer hear them go at it once again!
