    Finding out some stuff about nephew.

    Haven't talked to him face-to-face, yet, but that will come.

    I think that he wants to talk and to be closer to me. At this point, I'm the only adult, male role-model that he's GOT!

    His dad's a loser that hasn't been around, except to beat him as a young child, his mom's gone, my dad is gone... I have no brothers..

    He's starting to realize some of the things that I did about 8-10 years ago. That being coddled like he has been isn't the best thing for him and that he needs a little truth and honesty in his life. He'll get that from me, for sure. I'm not one to pull punches.

    Matthew, my cub scout with leukemia, had his fourth chemo treatment yesterday.

    His "numbers are up" whatever that means. Blood counts? Enzymes? I'm not a doctor, but if they're happy, I'm thrilled for the kid.

    Hey guys......still not getting notifications.......
    Bret, sorry to hear that news......it's hard at this time of year.......keep Karen and Andy close....

    JP, wow, what a difference to try and deal with......real impetus to see why JP spends the time he does eh? The one irony that I had a very hard time to understand when my girls were growing up was the fact that when they were being the little beotches that they could sometimes be and all I wanted to do was lock them in a room for their reprehensible behaviour, was ironically enough when I just needed to put all my work, personal and selfish $hit down and go spend some time......nothing more than time....with THEM. The talk, sharing of experiences, fears, dreams and day to day drudgery was all they wanted. (and it turned out, needed) They did not want 'stuff' of any type, just my time and this is what a lot of this generation is lost in.......their parents selfishness. That's the very main reason it really brings me to the level of appreciation I have when JP and Bret share of the time and escapades they share with their boys......TIME......is so precious......NOT STUFF.
    JP....NO one is more qualified (albeit it a drain on your time) than you to 'be that guy to look up to'........ We have a saying where I go at times..... Attraction by example, rather than promotion........

    well said ! mourning Bret & everyone. Hope today is good to all ...sad day here I have to put one of our Great Danes down...he's got cancer ( bleeding ulsur (sp) . And to remove them was going to cost at least 10 grand. I love them but I don't even have the money for my own mammogram every year. So a friend is coming to the farm to put him down for us . I can't shoot him. He was a joy to have but life goes on and I'll never own another dog. I'll have Grand dogs here soon and I'll let my grandsons raise them..tough day but we still have one other Great Dane & he will not be here much longer for he has the same cancer ..

    'Morning Bret and everyone. Great to hear about Matt. JP you have a ton of respect from me for dealing with the "kid".. He should know better, doesn't, but you're still taking care of your own and there's a good chance that he will get it.
