STILL STAGGERING, STILL WRITING, AND STILL HAWKING

Writing goes well, if slowly. I’m walking badly, sleeping worse, and not typing. I need some light guns- maybe one of those pseudo- Italian Turkish autoloaders in .410 — I don’t do heavy any more. On the other hand, I’m flying a goofy Harris hawk and have acquired several new, old guns.

Libby needs new knees, and is having trouble hearing me. And Ataika has died of cancer at 17. Life at seventy in the time of the Plague…

  1. I’m glad to know you’re still kicking around . In the age of the pandemic we need all the mutual support we can generate for each other for people who actually think and articulate an opinion without being in lockstep with the masses. i only found your blog a couple of years ago, but I have enjoyed it ever since . By now I’ve read and reread all of it several times over and my education continues. I ,like you ,qualify as a cranky old man and while I’d rather be younger, I’ll take what I can get as long as I can get it .
    So, keep at it, even if only a snippet once in a while . It makes my day when I find something new.

  2. Great to see a post. I’ve been scouring the web for word.
    Good to hear you are writing. Looking forward to volume 2 of the
    Sportsmans Library.
    Best wishes

  3. Would it be possible for you to send me your e-mail address please?

    Briefly, on your old Blog (2013), you posted an article in which you declared your aquaintence with the (English?) owner of a sporting gun which once belonged to Colonel Thomas Thornton. I’m very interested to know who this owner is – and for a reason which I’m sure will be of great interest to you.

    Kind regards

  4. Dear Stephen,

    It’s been awhile. I hope this finds you and Libby well and safe during these strange and sad days. Does my heart good to know you’re still writing, talking, being feisty (I hope)and just carrying on. Stay safe.

    Best to you both,

    Michael Katakis
