Pops, I LOVE you! Folks like you and me need each other, I firmly believe this. I think you have my number and if not, I'm more than happy to give it to you. I know you've been through some shit in your life and even though I'm not the most intelligent or "mature" mf-er in the world, you are always more than welcome to chew on my ear. I want you to know this.
I'm up right now for no other reason, but to medicate. I just lost another close friend today who had cancer. The thing I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around is that the cancer didn't kill him!! I talked to him and his wife last week and all was looking well even though he was stage 3. He and his wife got the flu, they admitted him and he threw a clot he had in his leg and it went to his lung and killed him. He never got the chance to beat the fucking cancer. I got the call earlier this afternoon.
"God"??? Yeah right.
The only reason I'm here, breathing, right now, is an 11 year old, beautiful girl who loves her daddy, unconditionally and the fact that I don't want to put my beautiful parents through the misery of losing a child even though I'm 50. My Mom and Dad are both 79 yrs old. My Mom is my best friend on the planet.
Oh and I love my dog Roscoe.
