House Sitting

Today I will begin house sitting at my ex-wife’s while she goes to Atlanta for a wedding. I will be hanging out with my son Jordon and his brother named something-or-other, I can’t remember. Hanging out with my son takes my back to my own childhood, those beautiful times. I remember the fun times causing havok with my siblings. I remember scanning the blue skies, looking for the nuclear missles that we were sure the Russians would one day send, with love. But most of all I remember how my mother used to blindfold us and have us play “Find the Downed Powerline” on a rainy day after a storm.

Like a time honored tradition my son and I will play some football (Madden 2004). We’ll drive to my house to watch the game tonight because my ex doesn’t have cable. Maybe I’ll even take him to pick up a bike. I remember now with sentimentality the day my brother’s dad stole me my first ten speed.

I remember all these things as I reflect on my childhood, but most of all I remember our next door neighbor who looked and acted like Grady from Sanford and Son. He used to have us bust foodstamps so he could buy wine. I miss the old guy. But most of all, I remember my dad. . .. .

    Sensing a little tension there. Perhaps, you just need to find him and beat him. This approach works well for me.

    I believe if you talk to him and get this off your chest it would be great. That’s what I do and sometimes it works. Other times I end up in County!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Spending time with you kids will one day erase any negative with the oldman.

    It will also make sure you treat your kids like the angels they are and always be there!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I like the beating option better, but “D’s” suggestion was much more rational.
