What a great photograph:

My buddy Wooly is recovering from mouth cancer. Less than a year ago he had his jaw replaced, his tongue replaced, and didn't know if he would even survive. He spent the morning with his younger sister, Dalo, calling in a turkey for her. He's also a hell of a photographer.
He likes being in the woods. He's told me several times that the worst part of chemotherapy was not being able to get outdoors.
Here's his photography website: http://www.pbase.com/wooly
Well isn't this a pleasant surprise, philoshop over here! (or should I say me over here?)
And yes, this wooly fellow you speak of is quite the woodsman, artist, photographer, hunter and about as tough an hombre as you'll ever come across.
Ms. Dalo is quite a person from what I gather too............
Welcome to the site Lawdwaz!! I got a bit confused for a moment and wondered if maybe someone was playing an internet trick trying to switch sites.
Welcome aboard, and yes that Wooly fellow is someone to keep an eye on.
Some might say it can be the aftermath
Thanks for the link.
That may be so, but does he have a moustache?
He just underwent a year of chemotherapy, Josh, but his cheesy 'stache has finally grown back!
Glad the fellow is doing good and able to take his sis out and enjoy the outdoors.
Out of curiosity, did he dip? I used to and could just about eat the stuff, no problem swallowing the the stuff if the need arose. I feel confident that if I hadnt stopped I would have had serious problems. My gums had started to recede and the skin inside my lower lip had changed. Even if he did I know it doesn't mean it caused it. Some people can do whatever and they have the genes to live to be a hundred. I don't .
I don't know if he ever dipped, but he did smoke cigarettes for several years before he finally gave it up by vaping instead. His switch to vaping helped me to make the decision to do the same, and I now haven't smoked anything in about 4 1/2 years. I'll never smoke again. The vaping is more about the "oral fixation" and going through the motions that forty years of smoking left me with. I'm able to put aside the vaping for days at a time, especially when I go to a hunting camp or something similar and forget to bring it.
Wooly has told me several times that he wouldn't have gotten through the ordeal without his sister Dalo. She literally gave him the will to live.
I also smoked. It's one of the more stupid things a human can do. It just doesn't make any sense. It's like putting your face over a camp fire if you think about it. Then you get hooked and can't stop the nonsense. I know it's hard to stop once addicted but I encourage everyone here to stop using tobacco altogether. I don't care how good your genetic code is, it can't be good for you. I tell my son "if you want to be an old man, you better start doing some things old men do".
