How Many Lives Does One Man Have? I Always Thought It Was Two. The Second One Began When One Realized They Only Have One Life. Not For Tex Harold Eldon Gilligan (Sonny). This Is His Medical Status Update Post. Tex Being On The Weaver Mountains June 30, 2013 Was Very Important To The Wildland Fire Industry. Too Many Times He Has Been Thanked For His Fire Knowledge & Experience. Let This Post Honor The Fallen By Sharing About "Sonny"... Who Is On A Road To Recovery ...

please fact check with me - thank you

11-7-18 5:55pm (Sonny wanted me to represent him to Brittany Kraus of CBS Inside Edition so at 3:50pm I spoke 14:44 minutes with her trying to figure the best way to get the interview direct of Sonny at home with Charlie the dog that shot him. On Wednesday, November 7, 2018 4:06 PM working via cell to help Sonny Skype for an interview with Inside Edition with reporter Jim Moret and when Sonny sent me pics of the dog and him at Nov 7, 2018, 4:51 PM. I decided I want no part in assisting on this interview - "broken hearted" - both Charlie and Sonny are in no condition to do an interview in my humble opinion and I have known him since 8.23.11 - I shared to Sonny since his son is off tomorrow they (Sonny and his son) can reach Brittany or Rachel Ahn or Jim Moret but I will post updates here and when I see an uplifting photo even lil' wee better than tonight's than I will post it here but I will never post the photos I got today - not right. It would be wrong for me to do that. Also in talking to him I caught the long pauses in breathing and the hearing capacity difficulties and more and I am just praying. I will in the next 24 hours place his audio on here. ). Sonny, rest well. I cannot erase that images you shared tonight ... Sorry, you know .. really, people do not get how rough you have it because you always seem so tough ... Sonny stated he heard the skit they did on himself on Saturday Night Live. I have not yet seen it. Anyone? have the skit? - email link to me.

at 1:24 marker Saturday Night Live talks about Sonny last Saturday:

Jim Moret, I think it would be very enlightening if you took the travel time to meet Tex Harold Eldon Gilligan (Sonny) and tell him your personal story ... that dark path ... I think in meeting and knowing Sonny you will see a bridged message in your interview. God Bless you. I think your interview should be about you and Sonny and the bridging inspirational message it can offer the world.

11-7-18 7:54pm Inside Edition, like I told Brittany Kraus today - you feel free to use my blog site and its content as long as you understand I am still working out glitches on certain pages... so please fact check with me but yeah feel free to use the content just make sure you know I have only got to Figure 43 in my updating the glitches on this page.

11-3-18 10:48am: My apologies to Bopha of ABC News. I do not know if it is bandwidth or WIX glitch but having concerns in the content below so if you use any content here because this page has been a "headache"

please fact check with me .

It added more pics when I never did. It removed comments. It changed captions to some general one.

THIS IS A "LIVE" DRAFT VIEWING...since you have deadlines but again if you pick an area "snip it" and fact check it with me because this page has been squirrelly. I will remove this section once I have proof read and corrected all spots.

Any "quotes" from Sonny will be highlighted in green. SO to make it easier on media folks just scroll for the "Irish" green highlights down below.

To know Sonny - you will live and have an adventurous trail ... never a dull moment.

You will feel the breezes and feel the many heightened howls of the winds or the whizzing noise of bullets passing by 25 feet away from the Cartel (2011) ... you will never experience under the moonlit evening skies the same ... when he closes his days with his classic "cowboy" campfires and plays old tunes of yesterdays on his guitar always dedicating it to his 4 kids and the 19 even Donut the survivor and thankful for his family. To watch him play is like watching into an ancestral time of long agos. The most enjoyable moments were when he played Oh My Darling, Clementine for his daughter. He loves all his children yet there is really something so beautiful and soothing when you get the chance to spend time with his daughter. Other great hits he plays are his originals "Cookie Cutter Cowboy" and "Green Back Dollar, Won't You Come Back Home."

He will teach you about the terrain and what foods you can consume and where to find your water supply and how to take the natural Earth to make your own utensils and dishes so you do not have to live by modern ways or how to make ammunition from desert finds ... Very creative and productive from 4am until noon then he relaxes however he sees fit for that day - never the same.

When "cookie cutter" men have "man caves" in their homes, which usually contains a game room or TV room to watch football or a bar, he literally builds a cave on his property calling it his "man cave." (a real cave) ... when I am moody I called it the "sot spot" and I had to learn a lot about life because here he was being free and here I was thinking why are we mucking? We could be doing something else even if it was nothing. Different generation.

I never met a more unique individual. His facial expressions are a way of reading his thoughts. The innate quality to this man comes from a deeper nature.

What I always felt as "sufferings" in knowing him and pioneering from August 2011 to August 2017 he always gave me the sense of I was resistant to the experience. I never was in bars all my life. My father, William Richard Zylstra Jr., did that with such a fashion as I grew up that I definitely did have a resistance in my trails with Sonny on that topic because I was there to pioneer, not hang in bars every ten days. He did it because he liked to meet people and talk life. In my life time if I went to a bar it was a high scale place with high quality folks "networking" not some back alley dive or rugged out of sorts one. This was a new one for me. However, had we not been at those bars we would not know a lot of the T R U T H S to the Yarnell Hill Fire. I took those WFs/FFs accounts and went and fact checked and pulled public records and FOIAs and documented their stories. It is there I learned a lot about Willis and Steinbrink.

How much time do we waste thinking about the life we should have been given versus making the changes in the current way and that is my only purpose is to ensure the Wildland Fire Industry is making the right changes.

So many "suffer" because they crave a different life versus just living the life God gave them. I am not a traditional person. My family and friends know this and support my paths yet at times do not understand it yet nor do I.

I could be way past this Yarnell Hill Fire, however; I will not until the ones "SPEAK UP." It really does matter to speak up with the truths. Stop believing the PIOs and other folks in the industry about why you should remain silent.

To know Sonny, is to realize I do not have to stop the resistance and start living the experiences. I can be a very hard-headed stubborn person at times. Yep, me. He is not there to water that seed or watch it grow or tug at it to ensure it grows faster or slower and not even one to talk at it. The flow of conditioning is our own journey not dependent on another but with Him.

For some of us, it is so easy to blame others; isn't it. I have thought over time the way Sonny lives a rancher rugged style life seems horrible to these animals in our time knowing another and I always went and got more items for the dogs trying to make him feel he was not doing enough. That was MY take and my perception yet all along these pets loyally loved Sonny as he would take them out and the boys always knew a certain time of the day when Sonny headed to the vehicle they were heading on a driving adventure to get them a rabbit. I have been there when cows or deer cross the horizon, the dogs would get excited trying to follow the window trail of the best view of the wild life. I will always have my own views of his life with the dogs and maybe I am too "cookie cutter" for my own good even though I am glazed locally and labelled the Arizona Desert Walker/Hiker and Annie Oakley of today's times I still think my take on pets will always differ than the next person. I have seen and judged Sonny over time no different than some of these YouTube comments and News Media folks. We all lead and live life differently. I feel he has led a multiple of lifestyles over the decades yet never conformed to the ways of this world. God wants us to love one another not break another down.

Sonny really believed he had the safety "on" on the Shotgun. I tend to think men and women in general think they did this or that but they are not always as mindful as one thinks. Just life. Sonny is an old miner, logger, cowboy and has never conformed to our modern world and to know him is truly like stepping into an old Zane Grey novel and he will be 75 years old December 10th and as he would state if the Irish Gods give him that much more time I know he will celebrate it with a chuckle that his loyal dog "Charlie" had his piece of the prison planet life we all are a part of as we drive to our beehives and work for the nectar all day for the Queen Bee. Sonny represents a natural rhythm that has always bewildered me. I have been guilty to judge him as he has judged me too. We are two people who God led to another's path to "condition" us for our times ahead. We all have our own seasons yet we also have to be willing for change through those and realize some stuff ripens in the Spring and some in the Fall so if we all just embraced we are all His Creation and we all learn and comprehend and perceive differently. Or then there is Sonny's belief that stems to the Zecharia Sitchin books and he was born to be a miner...a logger and a bad mother f'.....r.

Sonny has a PHd from New Mexico. He studied Geology and Psychology and Religion.

I am soon to post about the "Yavapai County Dozer operation(s) in the Sesame Street to Shrine Corridor area and Paul Morin," but the next one has to be on this below WFLLC video's content and the dangers that I believe it poses.

I want you to know and understand, Curtis Heaton - the men who were at the YH Fire on June 30, 2013, and who are your friends and are still alive ... and remember in your supposed "leadership" position that you should be totally focused on the "lessons learned" and "truth" - not your personal opinions nor your "protection of information" because it might hurt your "friends." I am putting out the documents. You can only imagine the data I have on this fire beyond just being the eyewitness. Maybe you should have contacted me to help you with "lessons learned." What are you achieving besides a lot of lip smack? Let me guess just by body language of this video and my sleuth skills that you all read off cue cards, am I correct? Are you trying to indoctrinate anyone in particular who will listen or just those "Team Players" - too weak to think for themselves, not rock the boat and love to go along to get along?

The subtitle to the "Honor the Fallen" video is "This video was captured on site of the Yarnell Hill Fire in January 2014. The participants spent the day walking the ground and discussing the challenges facing the wildland fire service as a whole." (emphasis added)

There were NO "discussing the challenges facing the wildland fire service as a whole" (emphasis added) that I heard - only your opinions.

The Honor the Fallen video begins with these valuable insights streaming across the screen: "Students of Fire - Hallowed Ground - Sense Making - Self Reflection - Learning."

However, I feel that you completely avoid addressing and/or confronting the "challenges facing the wildland fire service as a whole" issue.

There is so much more to the YH Fire story - what really happened and why and who was involved.

When Wildland Fire Investigators are from the top down being told to first establish a "conclusion" and then get the "facts" to fit that pre-established "conclusion" and to have Wildland Fire Instructors remove content from their teaching packages that do not square with the Agency version of what actually happened and why ... then what are we really teaching our WFs and FFs? Certainly NOT the truth! And then the respective Staff Rides are based on these lies and cover-ups and whitewashes, so then it is obvious what messages are our WFs and FFs are getting.

Read Dr. Ted Putnam's Paper ( 30-page "Accidents, accident guides, stories and the truth" ) below, the one that the WF LLC refuses to publish and refuses to acknowledge why in FOIA requests:

( https://www.yarnellhillfirerevelations.com/single-post/2018/10/15/May-I-Introduce-Wildland-Fires-Top-Notch-Person-Dr-Ted-Putnam-His-Life-Example-Inspires-Others-To-Become-More-Wouldnt-You-Agree )

I am attending the WF Academy only because I am currently training and gaining education to later be a law and fire investigator to work with a retired sheriff and be a part of his board so I get to soon "first hand" learn HOW these instructors are teaching the current WFs/FFs.

I am placing documents out to the world freely. Where are your documents to come to your conclusions?

Figure 3. Fire Fighting Receipt Source: Proton Mail

I am heading to the Academy to be trained to be a firefighter, not for a book or movie, like some did for their books. I do it because I want to see how they are training in the current ways and how it will help in my end goal to be a law and fire investigator and to be on the member board, with my good friend, the retired sheriff and his mining company.

If I can sum up Sonny to describe him in one word - always it will be in action format versus a noun - LIBERATING -

sums up what I saw on the trails with him 2011-2017. I will always be a better shot with a pistol than him but he is a better shot with a rifle for sure but we know he is not teaching Charlie any shooting lessons...I can confirm in the longevity of knowing this man that this was an avoidable accident had the weapon been unloaded yet Sonny does not live his life with an unloaded weapon when his whole point to the drive is to try and locate a rabbit for the dogs and was a common event to his life. So for the haters who are using this event for political or jokes or whatever...Sonny; in logic, must have hit a eroded spot in the road because his focus was to the rabbits and the truck bounced and the dog slipped and he got hit is my guess. I know the Sheriff were inquisitive if anyone else was with him and would anyone wants harm for him? Yeah, some heavy hitters and not so heavy hitters in this Fire Industry who wish the hikers were not on the Weaver Mountains that fateful day where 19 Firefighters died. I will keep persevering for those 19. I get the sensitivity of this. I get the small town I live in. Yet I also am not just the eyewitness but someone who for over five years gathered information and the documents and the time is here to keep presenting it to the world. I also know too many who are very close to the 19 and thank me and Sonny always for pushing the facts to the forefront.

Figure 5. Tex Harold Eldon Gilligan (Sonny) Graduating Photo at Lordsburg New Mexico High School Source: Sonny's Archival (Joy took photo of them in 2012)

Figure 5. photo was just before he was drafted into the Vietnam War. He didn't think he needed much physical training after daily busting boulders with a sledgehammer (mining with his dad since age 9) and he was in top shape physically. Killing rabbits and deer and birds to feed the family. Country Boy didn't know the city ways at all in those days. The graduation photo happened by chance because he walked out of school three months before graduating because of the principal didn't like his horse shoe taps so he was expelled because he refuse to remove them. Tex never went back because by that time they had plowed their home and belongings out west of Lordsburg to build the highway and he was actually on a roof they were rebuilding a shack out of what the state had pushed down with the dozers so the family would have a shelter. When the truant officer came up he said - we decided we let Tex graduate anyway because he had been an honor student so he did graduated with the others. - This was the time the interstate system was being put and by Eisenhower where nobody stood in the way; eminent domain. 2 D 9 cat's destroyed everything his dad had including his Rock Shop is his home and and almost finished Trading Post with pumps out front. They offered him $2,500 for the property and he refused and they told him he wouldn't get a dime. He didn't despite hiring a lawyer. They declared his mining claims null and void and therefore said they would not pay a cent. He actually had a good mineral claim and considering that he was a machine gunner in World War 1 what was the government thinking. In those days you could live on a mining claim and eventually yes a patented mining property. That was his intent and the mineral is still there plus all their stuff they had plus the stuff that the Indians traded with the Gilligan Klan Family. Alot of history under that highway ( Highway 80 that became Interstate 10 exactly 7 miles west of Lordsburg New Mexico ) buried by the Government.

Figure 6. Tex Harold Eldon Gilligan (Sonny) Source: Sonny's Archival (Joy took photo of them in 2012)

The above photo is Tex squatting by the some old possible Pontiac about 67' not sure what he has in his hand. At that time he was busting Granite boulders so they would be small enough to go through a Grizzly to a Crusher. A d 8 cat would push the material to the over the grizzly which would go down into the crusher and he would run out and hammer on Boulders that wouldn't go through. That place is in front of a shack that they were renting at Mogollon, New Mexico where he would ride a motorcycle or that car in photo up the mountain to Beaver head about some 30 miles. I think that's the same car his brother missed the road on with his wife and slid off a Bluff and wound up on a pine tree about 50 foot down they got out and climbed down the tree and found a ride home Beaverhead, New Mexico.

I would like you to take note that first photo; the graduation one ... he was a Country boy but then due to shoe concern at school and the Government destroying their livelihood ... look at his facial expressions in second photo. I truly believe that event changed him. Hurt him. I have never believed as well as Sonny that was his graduation photo as we have picked it apart over time except the ears in both are his. He does look different at different physical weights. Especially in the face/chin areas. He looked so happy in pic. (Nov 4, 2018, 10:11 AM A family member believes it was a kid at his school; [they looked alike])

His dad was a banjo picker in a Travelin' Band in Texas and had met some famous bands such as Sons of the Pioneers and his dad was a long time miner and rock store/trading post/gas station owner. Tex is named after Tex Ritter. "Sonny" was a nickname his sister gave him. Yet over the years she has some new nicknames for him; quite colorful. Soft smiles. I think anyone who knows Sonny had some nick name for him over time. Quite the character. Yet aren't we all to some degree?

Figure 9. Tex Harold Eldon Gilligan (Sonny); New Mexico Logger Days Source: Sonny's Archival (Joy took photo of them in 2012)

Figure 9. photo above - that was a day's work at Pinon New Mexico from there he would haul it to either Roswell New Mexico or Alamogordo and sell it off the back of that truck and he never remembered having to spend the night anywhere because it would would sell quick. That is alligator Juniper which he would cut from dead trees and made the best wood. Smell good had a good burn value but made a lot of popping noise in fireplace. Pinion and Oak have a burn value above Juniper but Pinon wood smokes and creates creosote while Oak is the same burn value Burns clean go slower than Juniper.

Figure 10. Tex Harold Eldon Gilligan (Sonny); New Mexico Cowboy Days Source: Sonny's Archival (Joy took photo of them in 2012)

He stated to me: "Joy, in my younger years I took on a job as a cowboy for the Brock Cattle Company owned by Charlie and Grace Ray. The pay was $5 a day and long hours. But I had gotten thrown out of Bunkhouse and feed shed for shooting rats off the Raptor with my 22 pistol. But I didn't mind that cuz I didn't like sleeping next to rats anyway and I didn't mind the Open Spaces looking at the stars but at some point I found out from the illegals he had hired that they were getting $6 a day. When I queried Charlie as to why they got more money than me he said they are a hell of a lot better Cowboy than you are. Well I was young enough and the fact was those guys had been brought up on horses and they had the experience that I did not. Another day that I found myself working all day and then washing dishes after supper. But there came a Time the Charlie shot Frank McCauley off the horse. I was working there but all hell broke loose and fortunately I wasn't present when this incident happened over McCauley's bull breaking the barbed wire fence and going into Charlie's dirt water tank. Those heavy cattle would get in there sometimes and get stuck in the mud so that we would have to rope them and pull them out with Charlie's 4 wheel drive Scout. Well this time Charlie and Grace met Frank at the Watering Hole and a heated discussion about his bull breaking fencers came up. Charlie told me that Frank had lunged at Grace with his horse. So Charlie put a bullet in him of his slide action $15 worn out Gallery 22 but it kept only 22 shorts in period in those days shorts were cheaper than long or long rifle ammunition. After he shot Frank off the horse, Charlie grabbed Frank by the hair and loaded them into the back of that Scout. He told me that Frank cussed him all the way during the ride for the 17 Mile in to Lordsburg Hospital. But the result was that Frank sued winning the whole Ranch worth a million. Frank did live for another 10 years confined to a wheelchair since his lower extremities were paralyzed from the bullet lodged on his spine. Meantime I had to find a another job and I went went back to mining, this time is a contract underground Miner. My first day's pay was $9 an hour so I never went back to being a cowboy."

Now with that said, I was at the Congress Arizona Arrowhead bar and Sonny was telling a crowd in there the story of New Mexico shoot outs and this man said that is my cousin you are talking about. I own that land now. I am Diamond Jim; cousin to who you are talking about. The ranch had trout pond 19 sections of grazing land forest and mine beautiful property lot of deer lot of fish and Canyon you want up following and going out gold Gulch towards Silver City and Diamond Jim owned it and Sonny said Diamond Jim and his klan were known to have whipped out a bar in a hurry. Two of them followed Sonny into a bathroom up by Cliff New Mexico where their Ranch extended. The only thing that saved him is a pocket knife handy hold them off till he go get out of the bathroom. Diamond Jim told me the Gilligan klan were known to get pretty rowdy. Diamond Jim was one of the casualties of so many after the YH Fire aftermath. Here is a photo to that areas:

Yet we know his focus is more to June 29, 2013 vs why engines sat where they did during crucial hours taking videos and picture but never made it to the report ???)

His sister is an amazing lady who when Sonny lost his son, it was she that helped him with process of the pulling through. Angelically, she did so much over time and the photo above is on her land that Sonny received and he planted a garden and it was near a opal mine and I had some very nice hikes in this area West of the Grand Canyon. Sonny has not be the same person once his son passed on and the reason he has tried to educate the world about the chemicals and how they work on firefighting and the retardant drops. I hope people read his writings on InvestigativeMEDIA. He goes by Sonny or Charlie or Tex on that site.

Sonny walked all you folks after the Yarnell Hill Fire on the Weaver Mountains because he knows the pains of losing a loved one. He is forever heart broken losing his son. In next photo, when we hiked you all where we last saw the men, it forever has affected him and he had to due to health walk away from the YH Fire aftermath and fresh start his life but he was a huge contributor to T R U T H from June 30, 2013 until August 2nd, 2017. He has had seven heart attacks and six stents but he figured it had to do with having seven wives...a heart attack for each one.

Willis and Duane Steinbrink, I hope you hear about this blog. Really at night reflect at all the years and decades that have passed you by and all you have seen and begin to realize it is okay to be liberating and share your story purely. The true steps to how the whole idea of GMHS became a reality and how it will take a person like you both to share more in depth to June 30, 2013 versus what the movie glazed it to be...I have documented the facts and some day post on that areas.

I have had 18 hours of troubles with this site adding areas...moving stuff and now below has 2 of the same pic...bear with me as I want to get this posted for Sonny and his stuff that he has going on. In time I will fix the errors. This page runs SO SLOW.

We helped a lot with United Way that Summer as well. We did spread ourselves thin when I look back but we made it through. Source: Joy A. Collura

The hikers took photos of Wildland Firefighters who later (Prescott Yavapai College evacuation phase) Joanna Dodder-Nellans of Prescott Daily Courier stated -did you know, you have the last photos of the GMHS? How does that make you feel?- and we thought how are we suppose to feel...We were on the Weavers to alert prospectors not be one of the last folks to have seen, watch and photograph these men's actions that fateful day. Yet since the YH Fire I have seen so much misinformation and bullying and down right disgusting behaviors shown towards the hikers for trying to fact check this tragedy that we eye-witnessed and it is continually wrong. Why is it so many engines were not even added to this investigation reports but some of the people who were in crucial areas...their family members participated in the fillum. Yet the film never even touch the Helms/Sesame/Shrine areas and that is the most important area to June 30, 2013

In closing, Tex has three broken ribs, a punctured lung, and a shattered clavicle. He received a dose of pain meds 8pm 11-2-18 and it takes 40 minutes to kick in - his pain gets close to a heart attack and its intensity. But he is given mild medication. He stated the gun that shot him was: Nov 2, 2018, 3:06 PM "12 gauge Beretta shotgun"

Nov 2, 2018, 8:10 PM "Yeah I miss those investigative media people all good people Everyone seeking the truth and most of them know it already here are the ones that have denied or alter the truth are only trying to protect their reputations. It would be big as if I had left you behind that day and you burn with the fireman. I could never live with my conscience from they're on. These people seem to have no shame or conscience so what do you do. You keep hammering away and one day The Young Ones Will want to know the plain truth. They will be able to find it on investigative media and your website. I got a dose of pain meds it takes 40 minutes to kick in just paying gets close to a heart attack and intensity. But I'm getting mild medication which I'm going to talk to the doctor tomorrow and if I have to haul my ass out of here up to William Beaumont where I know they give good pain meds. They treat a soldier like a soldier there when he needs it and I'm not one that likes pain medication but it's better than jumping out of a helicopter. Maybe. For your good work thanks much and thanks much for all the friends we have developed thru-hiking and investigative media."

Nov 3, 2018, 9:18 AM "Yeah I just woke up had one of these terrible Hospital breakfast. But I can't complain I can remember when the end of the month dad was going in to get a round of groceries we were waiting in the pine trees and throwing our last hard biscuits at each other. Groceries we're pretty slim in those days and it was fortunate that I was a crack shot with my little 410 single and a 22 rifle. They brought in many a wild pigeon and none went to waste. Even an occasional Cottontail roasted pretty good. Cottontail was the white meat and generally cleaner then Jack Rabbit, a red meat. Jack rabbits generally in the summertime especially carry worms. That's why I always roast jack rabbit on a campfire before I give it to the dogs. It's fun to watch them waiting patiently around the fire for the Rabbit to get roasted. I use a small Hatchet to divide it up and I guarantee you once they get their chompers on their peace it's a fight if anybody else gets near it. That tells a lot for dog food because I buy the best yet they like roast rabbit 10 to 1 over any brand of dog food. Don't believe those commercials of the dog sliding into a bowl of dog food. Even if I mix canned dog food in to the dry stuff, my dogs are not particularly impressed.About death and dying since I've died twice I can speak maybe a little of it. First time when I died outside that cardiologist office in the VA parking lot Prescott Arizona, I don't remember anything other than I was in great pain and went out somewhere and then woke up with all the Live Support that fortunately Joy ordered off of me later. I think my eyes were bleeding as well but I woke up from that and was a little bit angry because I was okay being dead. This time I knew I was shot bad enough but I didn't expect any chance of survival. Add shotgun blast and it lifted me off the seat and I saw blood fly by my head. But the jar was enough that I said oh s*** I'm gone and I had really thought some sniper fired at me from the desert somewhere. But once I rolled out on the ground I realized it had to be my own gun that had shot me.I did not think that calling nine-one-one would do much but I needed to turn the truck off cuz if somebody came along and found the truck and the boys they would need a ride back into town and the truck kept running it would run out of fuel so I managed to pull myself back up into the truck enough to turn the switch off and then thought I would try to find a phone. So I made an effort to Fumble around for the console and after a bit I did feel it and fell back onto the ground. But the sunlight was so bright I couldn't I need a dial so I had to squirm myself up under the truck to get in the shade enough to see the numbers. I'm not good at phones so I had to Fumble around for 5 or 10 minutes before I could get anything working but once I managed to nine-one-one operator I told him I'd been shocked by my 45. Anyways he asked all kinds of questions which I wasn't really in the mood to be answering but I did describe my location. And of course the rest happened and they were able to get there in time. I was conscious all the way to within 10 miles of the hospital. I don't know how fast those helicopters move this one seem like it was in slow motion. Then I knew I was kicking off to the other side. This time I started seeing Neon geometrical forms different colors shaped like the window on that Ford F-150 pick up. I heard some weird tones that you would think was the end of things and I knew at that point I was a goner. When I woke up Mark was there in the hospital and said I've been out for a few days and then revive me with cpr's. Told me to think these guys cuz they had saved my life. And of course I I did thank them and was grateful. We sometimes forget how much good these First Responders and the doctors at meet us at er do. Mark has been in the ER nurse for 12 years so I imagine he's been Thanked a few times himself.Still, These Close Encounters bring me back to needless deaths of 19 Young Granite Mountain hotshots firefighter. Every time joy and I would pass the rock Monument we made for the firefighters up near the top of the Weavers, I would have to cry. It always brought back the memories of my loss of my own son. He was young and in his prime at 29 and that sort of thing can never go away. It makes you have special appreciation for the Heartbreak those loved ones have for the loss of the young Heroes.. that's why you can only honor Joy in her persistent and unrelenting Journey to reveal the real facts and Truth of what happened. It can only be a good thing just save lives of Future Wildland firefighters. Improvement in that area can be only be based on the truth. In my heart I walk with those Wildland firefighters and much degrees Mars and steed not so much to blame as those people that put them in there. They after all did the best of their ability but their ability was not good as a firefighter leader. Someone should have recognize their deficiencies as leaders but did not. So much of the blame can be removed from their shoulders but to remove the truth is wrongdoing and its highest form"

Nov 3, 2018, 9:21 AM "You're a writing and that is excellent material the way you put it. It will give hope and understanding too many people. I'm not down on the cookie cutter world. But some do need and education and to realize that we're all on an equal footing when it comes to death and taxes."

Nov 3, 2018, 9:26 AM "One thing is for certain there's a lot more idiots among geniuses then there are geniuses among idiots. But looking at the situation of those experts the ran the Yarnell fire, instead of taking Awards for Good Deeds, many of them should be taken Awards 4 an absolute failure at the Yarnell Wildland fire incident. Most of us were hanging our heads and sadness but some of them should have been hanging their heads in shame."

Figure 37a-c. Sonny is in hospital not rehab center like media stated. Call him up. University Memorial Hospital El Paso room 300 he stated at Nov 3, 2018, 9:55 PM Source: Joy A. Collura

Tex stated 11-3-18 7:50pm that he talks into a cell that types so if any errors - the cell is to blame. :

He stated: "We are all human and make errors. I have had guns since I was 9 years old and believe the Beretta 12 gauge shotgun (8 shot) to be on safety but it was a new gun that I wasn't adjusted to. There's certainly lessons to be learned but some accidents are unpreventable. When a meteorite conks you on the head you're going to have somebody say you could have avoided that. There were about Six Wives I could have avoided as well but fate sometimes plays a bigger role than determination. And God has been known to f****** the best of plans."

When asked about "gun safety" to Tex, he replied:

"we can all make simple errors in judgement through life. But this one cost me pretty dearly you can bet I we'll check for safety next time but I'm not going to change my way of doing things or telling people how to do their life. It's absolutely ridiculous to try to make a law concerning minor technicalities. It's another 'cookie cutter' way of trying to make everybody follow somebody else's rules. The old adage what's good for the goose is good for the gander is not necessarily so. I might like peanuts but it might be deadly for somebody else. Strawberries are great but don't give them 2 someone allergic to them. And I am allergic to too damn many rules in this life. I grew up with a rifle within reach since I was 9 years old. Of course this is a modern age, and you think because it is you don't need a weapon handy. Modern Age crime is only increased as time goes on despite for Trump types believe more in law enforcement they do protecting your own self. Unfortunately law Enforcement is generally not readily at hand so that you hear many people killed because they didn't have a weapon handy to protect themselves. We make a big deal out of weapon deaths but they are minuscule to the number of deaths caused by automobile. Shouldn't we ban the automobile since it's thousand time greater killer then guns? Of course not neither should we ban our guns or make laws on people how they should use them. Of course there are sensible rules to go to buy just as we drive. But let's be sensible and all these things."

Update From Tex: Nov 3, 2018, 11:13 PM (he is still at hospital University Memorial Hospital El Paso room 300- anyone can visit or call him) (media said he went to a rehabilitation center and that has not happened yet): He closed today with pain stating: " I say Live and Let Live and people as far as I'm concerned if they're happy being a sheep head go to it. The world is full of idiots but it certainly not my problem. Can you wake them up? I don't know but if you try you're sure 2 be one of the despised. Funny how once an idiot is control he just follows what the Elder say no matter of the Elder is a freaking idiot and greedy and desirous have his flag phylacteries in other words he likes to be on the pedestal with people looking up at his a****** "

Nov 4, 2018, 1:15 AM Sonny emailed me: "woke up in such pain right up next to you heart attack pain..."

I went to sleep about 3am. I got off the pc about 1:30-2am. I posted an update on InvestigativeMEDIA ( https://www.investigativemedia.com/please-begin-yarnell-hill-fire-chapter-xxvi-here/#comment-475131 )

I am uploading some phone and camera clips of Sonny playing the guitar and some stuff from the YH Fire in the YouTube video this morning than off to church and be back by late day. I enjoy the people there yet at times I feel I have so much other stuff to do. However, the edification and obedience this church has to show me and the high significance of firefighters help me learn my 10 and 18 for school as well I have made my own classroom for Wildland Leaders now that this awful video came out from Leaders ( https://youtu.be/TE6Rfa3Vuo0 ) ( https://www.investigativemedia.com/please-begin-yarnell-hill-fire-chapter-xxvi-here/#comment-475131 ) ( https://quizlet.com/24898028/10s-and-18s-wildland-flash-cards/ ... https://youtu.be/_-9LKkSDVzE )

Nov 4, 2018, 1:19 AM Tex stated some agitated private thoughts and WHO LIKES HOSPITALS and those darn lights on and coming in all hours and he said: "Back to sleep..." Nov 4, 2018, 3:34 AM he emailed again a frustrating moment he had. He is up and at since Nov 4, 2018, 6:39 AM and what people do not know about Sonny this month and last was having severe life threatening heart issues (with prior 6 stents and 7 heart attacks) and lung issues called bibasilar atelectasis (https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/322027.php) and he already has very bad COPD and lack of lung function due to the YH Fire. He also has pleural thickening and this gun shot to the lung was not really a good thing and he aortic plaque build up he has does not help either. Real serious degenerative disease to his spine/shoulder concerns from being the "Cashus Clay" of the Mining Industry - Tramp Miner - let him tell you the times of his uranium mining. I would be here ALL DAY telling you the ails of Sonny but the IMPORTANT part of this all is that Sonny NEVER carries his cell phone and that day he did and it saved his life.

Update 11-18-18 933am: Sonny stated he is recovering at home but the dog

that shot him died by a local rancher most likely shot him as he wrote here: Nov 15, 2018, 10:29 AM "Well you were right Charlie made it back just so I'm just now as I walked out. He's been shot for the chest I don't know if you'll make it and I don't know how far he came being shot. Looks like it must have been a 22 cuz I don't see any exit wound but it went in right in front left as if he was looking at whoever shot him. Might be possible he went up to one of the ranch Outfitters off about 5 miles or the neighbor up a couple miles." and then update on dog here:

Nov 15, 2018, 6:31 PM "Well Charlie passed. Sure does hurt cuz I really liked Charlie. He must have come a long ways cuz he was gone all day yesterday. I had to run into town because of they were putting in the wound vac but that didn't even materialize so I have to go back tomorrow cuz they didn't have all the parts again."

We were thinking did Charlie even shoot him...in 2011 this fella tried:

All indications are pointing toward Mr. T.

Unnamed sources have revealed that Mr. T is not a suspect at this time, merely an "arachnid of interest".

Updated 11-18-18 12:10pm: November 18, 2018 11:50am email from Sonny:

I would appreciate if you did send a thank you to the Dona Ana County Sheriff Department that's spelled. Anna not a n a. Maybe even give him a link 2 your blog and also JD investigative media and maybe a little about your and my involvement with a 19. It was about 19 men all together that's save me including what Captain long listed here and he added Fire Department helicopter crew and ambulance and paramedics that were on the scene 25 miles out in the desert. He said my good description of my location as what save me but of course they're quick response and getting there and again I was saved within about 10 minutes like we were at the Yarnell fire because had we been 10 minutes later getting out you and I would be as burned to death as those 19 were. He didn't mention the doctors at University Memorial Trauma Center in El Paso that were also involved. Took a lot of people to bring a dead man back. So here we are people on the scene,

Captain Marion long Dona Ana Sheriff Department, and other Sheriff personnel, including sergeant d a s o n Allen, sergeant Josh Bryant, and interviewed me at the hospital was detective Thomas Hill very nice person I don't know if he was at the site where I was shot. And more people captain long told me we're present at the site including u.s. border patrol agent Juan Ontiveros, long said he had been a former deputy sheriff why he knew who he was. Also I saw a state policeman and long said there were Fire Department helicopter crew, ambulance and paramedics. And of course Charlie, cowboy and scooter. Well I don't know if it added up to total of 19 but I can imagine it was pretty close. I think your blog would be a great interest to those people. Probably best address Captain long. I see he was a 6-year Marine and meeting him you could see he was highly intelligent and excellent choice for the position he has. Wouldn't surprise me if some day we don't see him as sheriff of the county."

They will not remove the pellets but there they are, World:

Updated 11-20-18 5:27pm:

Update: May you all have a beautiful loving Happy Thanksgiving Holiday and Sonny emailed this:
