UPDATE- .45-70 needs a pick me up

A little birdy has alerted me that .45-70 is under the weather.

If he sees this it just could be the pick me up our friend needs.


WillysGoatGruff has given us an update:

He’s been transferred to a regional medical center and is in ICU. They might send him to a University Medical Center.

Thank you for your very kind posting for him and the AMAZING response from the IOTW community.

There are several issues happening at once, but he’s a fighter. He can get through this.

  1. What Benito stated! You will be added to our prayers.
    “Speaking the truth in times of universal deceit is a revolutionary act.” Geo. Orwell

  2. Ecclesiastes 4:12
    Though one may be overpowered by another, two can withstand him. And a threefold cord is not quickly broken.

    To me the three cords are Faith, Family and Friends.

    Your Friends at IOTWR are a part of that third cord wishing you well.

  3. .45-70:
    Two jiggers of Irish Whiskey, One tblspoon of honey, 4 oz warm water, stir well, and down the hatch with it. You’ll be back on your feet in no time at all. Happy Saint Patrick’s Day– All.

  4. Fellow IOTWer @.45-.70 – you are being missed at your un-manned station.

    We need you at that portside cannon!

    This SHIP needs your ass.

    Be well and carry on but dammit get better!


  5. Dear .45-70 — Get ready for complete healing because our Father in Heaven hears the gang at IOTWReport loud and clear!

    Rest up, don’t try to over-do, and Be Best.

    Abigail & Geoff C. (the Saltine)

  6. I hope you ain’t really sick and that you’re only playing hooky to go fishing 🙂

    If Moe Tom’s recipe doesn’t work then try a cup of tea, shot of brandy and a tablespoon of lemon. Down the hatch and you are back in action the next morn!

  7. …anyone seen @Chuffed Beyond Words lately? I remember HE said he needed healing here back along, but I don’t recall seeing him since…prayers for him too, and for all the IOTWers in need…

  8. Buck up, Buckaroo!
    All Hands on Deck!
    When the Strong are …

    Well, you get the drift.
    Get well (or better) soon.

  9. A cup-o-la thoughts on modern medicine

    A woman goes into labor with her child. The doctor says that they have invented a new device to transfer the pain of childbirth to the father. He asks if it is ok to use the new device. The couple agrees and so he turns the pain to the father to 10%. The man feels nothing. They then bump it up to 20%. He still feels nothing. They keep doing this until they have the machine up to 100%. The man still felt nothing so they go home happy until they find the milkman dead on the porch.

    Two hunters were walking through the forest one day. All of a sudden, one of them passes out. The other hunter panics and dials 911. The emergency responder says “911, what’s your emergency?” The hunter replies “My friend just passed out and I don’t know what to do! I think he might be dead!” The emergency responder replies “Before you do anything, make sure he is dead.” The phone goes silent and then the responder hears a gunshot. The hunter gets back on the phone and says “Ok, now what?”

    And finally…… Well, it can’t all be sunshine and hookers…… Get well soon!

  10. @.45-70: Another recipe from another friend, to add to Moe Tom’s and Johnny’s. Minced fresh garlic, hot water and honey tea. It DOES work.I suggest all three in sequence and moderation.

    Get your 300gr gc back to 1800 fps ASAP…

  11. Almighty and merciful Father, by the power of your command, drive away from .45-70 and all iotw-ers in need of healing, all forms of sickness and disease. Restore strength to their bodies and joy to their spirits, so that in renewed health, they may bless and serve you, now and forevermore.

  12. Since tomorrow’s St. Paddy’s Day, you could always try the Irish Two Hat Remedy:

    When an Irishman starts feeling bad, he hangs his hat on a nail in his bedroom wall and gets in bed with a bottle of whiskey. He drinks the whiskey until he sees two hats. Then he goes to sleep.

    Hey – can’t hurt, might help. 🙂

    P.S. – Get well soon.

  13. as a codicil to Moe Tom’s recipe …. now this is important, so pay close attention: take the 4 oz. of warm water & throw it over your left shoulder (try to do this outside so you don’t yank off the spouse). apply the whiskey w/ honey regularly

    … now, take your medicine … you’ll thank me in the morning.

    hang in there, we’re all praying for a quick recovery

  14. I hope you’ll be feeling faster than a 7.62 X 51mm soon! Best wishes for a speedy recovery.

  15. .45-70, if you have a dog get on the couch with him or her with some hot chocolate and some pooch treats and watch some old movies, none of that new crap they have been churning out for the last 50 years. I would recommend It’s A Mad Mad Mad Mad World. Saw it as a teen when it came out at the Drive In. Still funny today.


    And don’t watch the news or any talkin heads. That’s enough to make anyone sick.

    Get well soon!

  16. You’re not out of ammo yet, .45-70!

    (Visualize your immune system loading ammo – and get well soon!)

  17. .45-70: Hoping you’ll be back here soon and feeling fine. Prayer for you and for all IOTW-ers who are in need of some healing.

  18. It’s St. Patrick’s Day (for parades, anyways).

    Chug some Guinness, and get back to driving the SNAKES out of CONgress, and the swamp!!! 😀

  19. > PSALM 23:4 The Lord Jesus keep our fearless leader, President Donald J. Trump, away from danger and malice!

  20. Whisky!
    With just a splash of water.

    Seriously, I hope and pray for your speedy recovery.

  21. @.45-70; whatever has brought you low I’d bet cash money you’re stronger so power through and get back to posting.

  22. The peace of calm seas, the rectitude of a righteous servant in service to those he loves, the well being of a closely tended flock, I wish all of these for you. Be well, and join again with us when you can.

  23. .45-70 you’ve always been a sense of reason here and respectful while doing it.
    The best to you!
    Sincere regards,,,

  24. It’s a battle right now, .45-70, but praying God grants you the strength to win by His grace and mercy. Get well soon.

  25. 45 – 70,
    God isn’t ready for you yet & the Devil is afraid you’ll take over. You need to get well soon. We need you here to help the rest of this crew explode more “Progs” heads on a daily basis.

  26. C’mon .45-70, Lock & Load! (up on meds if you need ’em). Otherwise hurry back to the “range” aka IOTWreport!

  27. Hey, this place isn’t the same without you. Please GET WELL and come back! You are missed!!!

    With prayers and positive thoughts.

  28. I talked to his brother today….things are getting better, but he’s got some battles…..PLEASE ADDRESS ALL RESPONSES AS THIS…..HEY FUCKHEAD GET BETTER!!!!….LOL

  29. .45-70 ‘spit the bit’ last night and was last seen running across the Rainbow Bridge to be with his beloved cocker spaniels and the love of his life Diana…..RIP Dan’l……

    He took great pleasure in this very kind post and all of the heartfelt comments….
