Good deeds & good feelings.

So as most folks who read the gun blogs know, Borepatch is splitting time between Atlanta and Austin lately, and last Sunday, Sabra and I met up with him in New Braunfels. I told him that ever since he told me he was coming this way, we were gonna HAVE to meet up at one point. So we did, and a good time was had by all.

I was sort of taken aback when I read this on his blog after we got back, though β€” in a good way. I guess I didn’t think about how much his being away from his family on that day had affected him, and to be a part of his reflections on that day touched me and made me feel pretty good. I had just thought of it as taking the opportunity to make a new friend. Such is the perspective, I suppose, of one who has not experienced what he has. (I will say, Borepatch, that I know what you felt when it came to your grandfather. I was very close to mine, too, on my mother’s side. I was lucky to have him around for a little more than 17 years of my life, though, as the line from the Vince Gill song goes, the pain of losing him cuts like a Randall knife.) And then this made me grin even bigger. Yeah, Miss Marie’s something else. πŸ˜‰

Anyway, I guess I said all that to say this: I’m glad our companionship was such a gift to you, Borepatch. It was our honor and privilege to give it to you. You’re a good guy, and we’re proud to call you our friend.
