My Father [Mar. 29th, 2011|07:35 pm]

There is no doubt now.  They will be removing the feeding tube tonight.  I will in the next week be leaving for Ohio, hoping I am there before he dies.  We have not been close for many years and while I have tried I never understood why.  Now I will never know.  He has not regained consciousness since he got to the hospital and they did the surgery to repair the injury to his brain.  I know this has been harder on his wife my step mother Susan and my sister Susan since they are the ones he shared time with for the last 20 years.  I know this is not the end of the world, but it is the end of part of my family.  Both parents are gone, with so many things never said.  My mother far too young, by a drunk driver and now my father, who was a strong fit person.  Is going too soon.  My grandparents both made it into the eighties and grammy made it to 92, so I feel he still had many year ahead of him.  It shows the simplest things can end all.  He just fell on some ice and hit his head.  Not even very hard from what I was told.  Dad, I love you, and will miss you.  May the spirits guide you on to the next place as what you believe in peace and joy.  You will be missed.

Well I noticed a grinding when I hit my brakes over the weekend. Got it in to be looked at this morning and it seems guy_todd has shared his curse with me.  Just as I was getting ahead of the game on credit cards and other bills something shows to help drive me back down into the dark.  $700 gets me all new braking gear in the back.  Well I should be safer on my trip to visit my dads bedside next month now.  1600 miles round trip will be interesting.  I am going to Ohio via Syracuse.  Might spend a hour or so visiting my old stomping grounds on the way west.

My Tracker, the good hard working roller-skate, is dead. After close to 170k miles, the timing chain broke and took the engine with it. It would cost much more than the wee thing is worth for a new or even used engine.She has been to many faires and carried much equipment, I shall miss her.

My copies of "The Art of Combat" have arrived. Lots of reading in front of me, plus learning new fighting styles.

As of today and the payment I sent in. My Chevy Tracker is all mine. I no longer share ownership with a finance company.

The move has been accomplished.  Now to unpack and find the stuff I need.  Pillows, sheets and blankets ended up being buried in the storeroom.  Pots and pans, plus dishes are also in there someplace.  It might take time, but well worth it.
