To everybody in here, I have to leave here, for a reason that has been getting worse, over time. A while back, I was part of an experimental group that had surgery done to them, to try out a new bypass, to alleviate blocked arteries to the brain.

It never was brought out to the public, because that experimental surgery brought death to a number of patients. It brought on the destruction of my left temporal lobe.

My memory has slowly gotten worse, until now I can not anymore serve as an administrator in here. I am calling it quits, before the memory loss becomes so severe that the MTF becomes a place of really bad judgement, on my part.

I am going to become part of The Trump Movement. At least I can say, soon, that I can't remember anything that he ever said that was bad! ;)

With a feeling of regret, I am saying goodbye to y'all.

Behave yourselves!

Unca,
Really sorry to see you go. As I said before I enjoyed your previous life as Doc Bones and now as one of the moderators. Hope you can get in some good fishing there on Truman.
Take care and may God Bless.

Tim,

Am truly saddened to hear about this. As we have discussed, my mother is dealing with memory loss now and I hope that your stories and legacy (both as a Marine and as a Corpsman) are able to be shared for years to come.

You know how to get a hold of me offline. Don't hesitate to reach out.



Rainmaker will be the last man standing in this virtual Battle Royale...

I will ban you permanently before I let that happen ;)

Guys, it seems as if a dust storm is now here in the computer room of computating computer stuff. Or maybe some recruit of mine has set off a CS gas grenade in here, to pay me back for being a meany twoboots to him.

Civvy, just look for the one guy that has gone fishing with his very own Sherman Tank, without the swimming gear attached. Oh, the Marine Corps League Det. claims it as their own, but I refuse to have to think back on that.

Rainy, I have done battle with you for years, but really, I will always think of you as one of the guys that took banning, and came back smiling. Be good, my friend!

Jim, what can I say that I haven't already said, a bunch of times, either on account of my failing LTL, or just because it always felt good to unload! Say hi to your mom, for me. And don't forget to pull the pin on those ban grenades!

Hey, Garhkal! Thank you for the good wishes! I'll drop in, now and then. My memory has gotten pretty bad, so I won't be here very often. I find it hard to remember which post that I answer, and that is definitely not the greatest thing.

See you, Bro!

USMC0341,

Thanks for the good wishes!

I have this lingering thing, brought on by the USN deciding to try out an experimental surgery on me, at the point when I was 2 years from retiring.

They did an internal/external carotid artery bypass, on the left temple. As a result of trying out this new location, a lot of guys went on to the battlefield in the sky. I had a very good and kind CO, who let me serve out my 20.

Ever since then, my mind has slowly been losing the memory functions. The left temporal lobe being host to retaining short term memories, and this surgery making my left temporal lobe disappear, I am now at the point where I really can't remember what was said to me, 1 minute ago. I have to recheck what I am typing, even in here, to make sure that whatever I am trying to say remains coherent.

Sitting on the porch, warning kids not to enter my lawn has become very trying. I have to keep on checking if my trench sweeping 12 gauge is on safe, or isn't on safe. Just wait! It may happen to you, in about 70 years, too!

All kidding aside, it isn't Alzheimer's disease. It is just a slow progression into losing whatever is told to me. Or driving down the road, to check out what the fire status is, on the billboard on Main Street becomes a challenge, because I have sometimes driven past it 3 or 4 times, before I remember what I was out there for.

OK, so it also might be because this is a resort town, with a harbor, and plenty of shops, where barely clad women congregate. Yes. I am checking out the fire status, at the fire station.

That's what I tell my wife.

Driving isn't much of a problem. Some old habits have yet to die. Main Street has a speed limit of 15 mph, and watching for people pulling their vehicles out of their parking spaces is a present time thing, so there isn't any memory involved. Muscle memory keeps my braking ability intact.

Next time I go in to renew my driving license may be the time that I stop driving. "What is your name?" "Wait a second, while I check to see what it is, on my old driver's license, please!" "OK, you are now getting a state ID."

At least I can come back here, every once in awhile, and read some of my old posts, and laugh, and think what a great comedian I was. Because whatever I did post is new to me, every time I come in here.

Well I THINK that I am a great comedian. Others may have a hard time seeing my sense of humor coming through.

Anyhow, it was nice hearing from you! Have a great life!

Well, It sounds to me, like our old devil dog Unca's got what effectively amounts to a 'get out of jail free card'!
