This is the first time I've ever talked here about this and I hope you won't think less of me for shareing but I just want to thank 3 D shoots\Chris and it's members for all the help and good times you given me!!!In Closing I'd also like to share if depression was the sickness then Archery was the God sent cure for me and it seems to be workng still as of today I'm now the if you can beleive it the Open Champion of my Club!!!!!Thank-you all for the friendship and support even if you didn't know it over the last year you've all been a God Send Guys

Well Westy, That is great news, love to hear that your not on meds and doing good.
Nothing like a little archery for a cure-all along with good info and friends from this forum.

And now you all know why Westy is a semi retired gentleman at 45!!!!!He now only works 1\2 days ????He gets to choose which 12 hours I'm now up for a Folgers and wave at the people going byeI've learned that pleasing everyone is impossible, but pissing everyone off is a piece of cake.

A little known fact !
I'm still a slave , Westy what kind of meds you got left ?
Really , am glad that you are happier , as life is way to short , not to do some flinging of arrows !
Westy , do you think that maybe you could help Gator herd that three leg deer past my stand ?
As I am now ready now !
