    "When you have loved three things all your life, from the earliest you can remember; to fish, to shoot and, later, to read; and when, all your life, the necessity to write has been your master, you learn to remember and, when you think back you remember more fishing and shooting and reading than anything else and that is a pleasure."

    Ernest Hemingway, American Rifleman, June 1942

    Most of us detest suicide, but you never know the mental pain a person gets. Never do I judge a suicide.

    He checked out on his own terms. How many of us could do that?

    ysr_racer, W.C. Fields was also considered an atheist.

    But one day he was older, he was caught reading a Bilble.

    When asked what he was doing reading the Bible as everyone knows he was a non-believer, he replied, "I was just looking for loopholes".

    I have never forgot that line. I loved it!

    Hauxfan!
