Count your blessings? Let's see,
My wife left me
My dog died
the fridge quit with a small fortune in food
It's cold as a dead man's tongue
It's 3 am and I can't sleep.

There has to be a country song in there somewhere.

Oh yes, the blessings

I'm in great shape for a man twice my age.
My kids and grand kids are coming for dinner, and I have plenty of Scotch. Thanks, Mary.
My wife is coming back (As far as I know)
Dani says my dog is waiting in heaven.
That new furnace keeps the place comfortable.

Come to think of it, I have more going for me than I thought.
1. My eye sight,
2 My hearing
3 My inhibitions.

Oh well, Merry Christmas.

Merry Christmas.

Olde Englishe Humbugs

Big stripey sweets individually wrapped in clear paper. Kept in a jar on the highest shelf of the sweetshop. Sometimes the sweetshop man let you sniff the jar, bacause it had an exquisite minty smell.

Its years since I saw real humbugs - just a taste of mint, but after a while it turned into a sweet mint flavoured cement in your mouth. No good for your teeth - but it stopped you coughing if you had a cold. It kept your throat moist. Sometimes just long enough to get to sleep.

Jacqui says she will be home on Wednesday. That makes me remember an old song that Caryl P. Weiss used to sing:

It's over. It wasn't toooo bad. Mum put the pepper to a couple of them in a very nice way and stopped the crap before it could multiply. 85 and losing it but she still has those people skills that only come from age and thereby wisdom. And a cane.

Oh my... even a Zantac 150 can't overcome the turnip (see the dinner thread). I just don't feel good.

Kendal - no man is an island. But sometimes you're better off with your memories and a bag of humbugs and a frozen pizza.

have you thought of becoming a fugitive? you may regret it - the one Christmas I tried it - terrible things happened.

However - at least i experienced life outside the compound.

He also has the llama but it too is wanting Jacqui to get home so the poor thing can rest. I had a good Christmas Kendall.....If you missed it, let me explain....................

Many of you are familiar with what my son Michael went through starting about age 13 with depression and the resultant RAD with cutting and even attempted suicide. After 3 hospitalizations and time in a treatment center along with a load of drugs and counseling, he began making a comeback in late 2007, age 16. He still struggled with school and the schools were struggling with him. After a year of home school we tried public school again and then gave up and just went for the home school route permanently.

Socially and emotionally he was making progress and last year when I spent two months in the hospital he stepped up to the plate and really grew up. One of the great joys of my life has been to see the truly wonderful relationship he now has with his Mom. When I hear them laughing together in the kitchen it is hard to believe that just a few years back he screamed at Karen, "You stupid fuckin' bitch."

Mike is now off all meds and all counseling and really doing well but I still worried about school and getting his GED. A few months ago he just finally said, "Dad.....that's enough. Let me take the test and then we'll see what I have to do next." I agreed. I hoped he would pass a portion of it and then he would have a better feeling about what else we might need to work on and any special accommodations we might want to apply for. So he turned 19 on 11/25 and he took the GED on the 16th. Yesterday we got the results via computer at sister Connie's prior to our Christmas Eve supper.

And he passed. He passed them all. He passed them all with some fine scores and on the first sitting and without special accommodations. I cannot tell you how proud of him we are. If he was graduating from Harvard with a PhD I could not be happier.

I suppose most parents find that moment, that epiphany, with their children and even though we had it with Tris and could see a future for him, I feared Mike would never pull it together but he has..........and somehow in that moment yesterday my view of him changed completely. Now he is an adult...and he at least has a shot.

Thank all of you who have been supportive of us and thanks for reading. I may stick this post on a couple of threads so if you find it have pity on this happy Dad and don't bitch!

Wonderful news Spaw. You and Karen have done a first class job raising those boys.

I spoke to Kendall and family last night - dinner went well - he cooked the turkey to perfection, I am told. From the noise in the background it seemed that every one was having a good time.

I'm heading off down south today, staying with my son in preparation for my flight on Wednesday. Not long now Kendall, so get that llama out the house and back in the garage where it belongs!

Spaw, I wasnt aware of any of your story with your children but as a social worker it isnt too hard for me to read between the few lines above to have a sense of what you have been through with Mike and the joy you are experiencing now. You are absolutely right "at least he has a shot" and thats what its all about!

We had no such dramas with our daughter but at the end of high school this year and while still waiting for her results we find ourselves content with the knowledge that she got through, sometimes despite her teachers, and is in a position to "have a shot" as well. We have no idea what the future holds and cant protect her from any of that but we know that at least she had a go and we were able to go along for the ride and help out as best we could. It kinda makes it all worthwhile when you see the smiles.

Its funny though, I've also been thinking about BigBallad Singer, another 'catter who featured in a couple of threads of his own earlier this year where he was looking at selling his instruments to make ends meet. He needed a real job at the time to help make ends meet for his family. I haven't noticed anything about him or from him for a while but I was touched by his story and hope that things have turned out better for him over the past few months.

Merry Christmas to 'catters everywhere!

Cheers,

Andrez

The weather outside is freezin'
The poor dog died and I'm sneezin'
My wife decided to go!
Let it snow, ;let it snow, let it snow.
It's 3am and I'm awake now,
How much more can I take now.
It's as cold as a dead mans tongue,
And I've broken my iron lung!
No presents under my tree now,
Nothing to live for no-how,
It's time for me to go....
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.

Count Your Blessings

My wife left me, but she's comin back.

My dog died, but he's in my memories.

The fridge quit with a small fortune in food but the rum and whiskey won't spoil.

It's cold as a dead man's tongue but spring will come.

It's 3 am and I can't sleep. But I think of petting my dog, and the wife and I have rum and whiskey.

Scary Knight
or
It was a dark and stormy Knight


There was little light, a stormy knight,
The weather was bad also.
A terrible night with a terrible knight,
At the chamber door, a crow.

A fireside dog and a fireside log,
I pondered by my weary brain
   I tossed in my dog instead of the log
His howling nearly drove me insane.

The error of my ways, I could not stave
So I pulled the poor beast out.
He was singed to the skin and his eyes were dim
But his loyalty was never in doubt.

To amend my ways, to this very day
I call him Sir Lancelot
And he sleeps in my bed where I once laid my head
Like a King on his Royal Yacht.

Cap't Bob
