    And you're a redneck, rebel boy........but we were lucky no doubt.
    And though we don't always agree on things like which politician is worse, I still consider you a good friend.




    Try not to cry, OK........

    Good job James. It's not often that a thread can run its course with no altercations.

    I know I have said this before , but I think its worth repeating

    As a child I was brought up / raised by both my parents. My mother and father actually loved each other , in fact they were best friends. They never had to beat us as children , they never spoke in anger around us . I was raised back in the day that fathers could actually love their sons and there was no sex involved. When my mother passed away he lost his best friend and when he passed away I lost my best friend.

    What a topic.

    I'm one of the lucky ones for sure and don't think I don't know it. I golfed with my Dad yesterday. He's still in good health at age 69. We play cards once a week usually.

    I know it won't be that way forever. I'm enjoying it while I can.

    Had a nice family dinner with Mom and Dad last night.
    They told me how proud they am of me.

    I am a lucky man.

    Hmm

    James, I have a son that lives in Boston. He hasn't talked to me or his brothers in years. Even with his big brother having a broken neck. I really can see it. He has to be his own man and leave this madness only to create one of his own. He might as well be here in south texas where his family is. Roy

    I don't remember much about my dad. He died when I was 12. I lost my mother 5yrs ago, my stepdad 4yrs. and my sister one month ago. I'm the only one left now of that part of my life. So you guys that have yours, enjoy them, they won't be around long enough.

    My dad passed away 11 years ago, and I still miss him.He was one of the best "forty two" domino players that I have seen play the game.He was always eager to learn and never to busy to pass on his knowledge,if you wanted to learn.
    He was fun to be with,a good sense of humor,enjoyed family,worked hard,provided for his family and loved God.
    He taught me so many different things in life.
    He challenged me in learning without being critical of my errors,always encouraging.

    My dad died a couple of years ago, he had just gone into the real bad stages of alzheimers and we we making plans to put him in a full time care home. He kept wandering off and we were concerned he would get hurt. I still remember the day that I took his car away from him, I don't know if he really knew what was going on but he sure looked beaten down by it. He died in the car with my mom from a heart attack. He had had heart problems since 1978 but he quit smoking and lost weight and was able to control it without surgery. The alzheimers was oncomming for alot of years . In the early stages it was real paranoid behavior as it got worse his memory went. He used to turn the hot water off to the shower after three minutes on me when I was young. He also made me pick up leaves once after it snowed on them over night , after I told him I would get it done. But he also gave me my first real job and took me camping and worked seven days a week sometimes to take care of my mother ,sister and me. My wife and I have adopted a boy
    from Korea, I hope that I can be half the father to our son as my dad was to me, I miss him everyday.
