    As to grandpa... I'm in that same boat, just subtract the spawn (haven't gotten that far yet.) Dad isn't quite that bad, but he and alcohol are never far apart. If you want some of my rantings on the topic, I'm sujre there are plenty throughout my journal, as well as rantings and expositions and drama filled depression sprees on other things. It's a wonder I get around to the PB stuff at all. Supposedly, Dad's been closer to sober after that health scare, but I'll believe it if I see it 6 mos from now.
    My dad had open heart surgery about 2 months ago and he's actually gotten worse since then because he's off work. At least when he works he's a functional alcoholic, but anyone who packs a cooler of beer for the 15 min. ride home from work is A. asking for a DUI or worse, and B. sad.

    Sssh, ladies- he hasn't noticed us, yet.

    Kvetch away. You've seen my journal. The food stuff is mostly an aside at this point Glad the things are doing well, at least.

    Thankfully, Dad has never been that bad. There were times... not here, not now... that I worried about him and us, but he mostly knew when to drink and when not to, and I think a lot of it was wanting to remember things from us growing up and not flunk a random drug test. To be perfectly honest, if he wasn't driving, I preferred beer drunk dad to sober dad to liquored dad. Hell, I preferred anything to liquored dad.
    Anyways, I do worry about his alcoholism with regards to the future podlings, but that's then and I haven't burnt that bridge yet.

    Yup, beer drunk dad is fine. Whiskey drunk dad is what he's been for the last couple years. Side story, drssgchic my little garden is doing great, but I planted a row of something and I can't remember what it is...I think that qualifies me as a beginning novice gardener.

    Did you know that the U.S. controlled Toronto in the War of 1812? And Washington, D.C. was captured and the White House burned? Hmmm...hindsight says we should have given D.C. to the Brits and kept Toronto...I like Canada and would visit if it wasn't a whole 'nother country.

    Hmm...I hadn't considered that possibility. At least if our govt was in another country it might be an excuse for how far removed they are from reality.

    beautiful
    yeah you are

    I mean there's so many ants in my eyes! And there are so many TVs, microwaves, radios... I think, I can't, I'm not 100% sure what we have here in stock.. I don't know because I can't see anything! Our prices, I hope, aren't too low!
