Don't know what to say Paul but it sounds like you've made full use and enjoyed the time you've been given which is more than many can say. Clock hasn't stopped yet, give it the full bollocks

Paul just made Rob type 'bollocks' on his own forum.
If that isn't a legacy, I don't know what is.
The Filthy Pig: Air Arms 100 (1990) + AA Olympic trigger + Welham reg + Custom Shop CS1000 stock. Status: leaking.
The Unknown Quantity: AA EV2 Mk4. + BSA Platinum 10-50x60 + Jon Harris wheel. Status: sorted up to 25 yds.
The Limping Dog: Air Arms Shamal (1989) + unknown origin sporter stock + Optisan Cobra 3-9x42. Status: slowly leaking; needs work.
The Ox: HW97k + Venom Lazaglide. Status: working just fine; needs scope.
with apologies to NJR100

Struggling to find the words here.

All of us are here for a relatively short time. The thing is what we do with the time we have, and you have certainly made the most of it, but it's far from over yet. I don't hear no fat lady!
Hopefully without the aggressive treatments you'll be feeling better that you have been and every day of life loved to the full is a victory.
I tried to type lived and hit the O instead - damn iPad virtual keyboard - but decided to leave it as, if anything, more appropriate.

Keep fighting ninja!

Why does it always happen to the good guys.

And Paul is one of the best.
Less is more.

More or less.

Hi Paul,
Well I agree with Luddite, and as a fellow PARC member I have always followed your progress on the FT circuit, and also admired the feats that you accomplish from year to year. And whenever I have spoken to you I have always been impressed with your friendly helpful advice for everyone and pleasant attitude, and you really are one of the best ambassadors of our sport.
I am truly gutted for you and the family, but I know your a tough nut and will not give in. I don't really know what to say, other than they gave my dad three to six months, and he went on for 9 years.
I wish you all the best, and it will be good to see you at the NEFTA shoots.

Never met you Paul but I've followed your posts on here and the HW site re your projects and stock making etc.

You've given me advice re pellets for my 77. Many thanks.

I've followed the posts re your illness and kept hoping for good news.

You know all the one liners ... No words blah blah blah ... so I aint going there. I'll just keep thinking of you and praying for you.

Keep enjoying fella.
