Quote of the day:
The vampire tilted its head, mimicking Ghastek’s movements. “You’re still riding that monstrosity?”
“Feel free to stomp him,” I told Cuddles. “I’ll back you up.”
A few of your asked how the visit with my father went. The answer is, it went very well.
I haven’t seen my father in over twenty years. First, neither of us had money for the ticket. He was living through the collapse of Soviet Union and the following economical chaos. I was trying to raise two kids and applying for the green card came with some restrictions. Then Gordon was in the military, and 9/11 happened. Travel to other countries was discouraged for military personnel and families. Then I was applying for my citizenship. Then my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer and both of my parents were adamant about me not visiting. I didn’t agree, but I honored their wishes. Then I finally had money and offered to pay for everything, but my father couldn’t get off work, then he had a hernia and had to have surgery… You get the idea.
Finally after many years I was able to persuade him to come and see me. We had an awesome visit. We really did. He is still my Dad and he still loves me, which is awesome.
