Sorry for the delay in posting.
My computer is on the fritz. I'm waiting for parts to arrive. Should be fixed by tomorrow.
I try to scan the photos as I get them.
I really don't have a giant library of pics on the hard drive.
It's more fun that way.
But... here's one that I had stored on a disc.

In the meantime, for your entertainment.
Here's a photo of me in high school.
Yes, I was on the chess team.
Me, middle of second shot, rolled up sleeves.
My girlfriend Kelly at the time, in the middle of the third shot.

Playground

We were kids
Once a week he showed up
Driving his blue Chevy pick-up truck
His breath smelling of beer
We got in and waved good bye to our mom
Where we were going was never a surprise
When we got to the tavern
Always first, he ordered himself a beer
The bartenders said hi to my sister and I by name
They knew us well
He asked for some quarters and two kiddy cocktails
He gave them to us and waved us toward the back of the tavern
"Stay outta trouble" He'd tell us
He turned on his barstool and never looked back
We'd play pinball and pool until the quarters ran out
Then we'd just sit in the back part of the tavern
Being quiet and staying out of the way
The consequences of doing anything else
Was to be hit
We would wait until he was done drinking
Usually we were there for hours
Sometimes all day
Those were the worst ones
They seemed to last forever
Finally, he'd teeter back towards us and say "Lets go"
You got back in the truck
We were always very quiet
So he could focus on the road
As he weaved down the streets
To take us back home

Freedom

April 10, 2008

Listen. I've seen the world. I've seen the good and the bad.
What you have to do to be happy is... live baby.
Live your life like there is no tomorrow.
Wear out that rug of life. Walk the path you want to.
Quit that tired ass job and do something you love.
Hell, do someone you love.
Life. Life is all about freedom.
Freedom to be able to be who you really are and who you really want to be.
The comfort of just being who you really are.
Relax. Enjoy life. It's all about one thing.
Freedom baby. Freedom.
