Days go by

Well isn't it just the shittiest feeling in the world to have a stack of cash, and after you pay all your bills you sit there and stare at the little pile that you now have. The money flies out of my hands like a windstorm. I am thankful that I am able to pay my bills. Many nowadays are not. I bitch about going to work, yet inside am smart enough to know that I am lucky to be employed. My dream is to go to Europe, specifically London. I want to see some people in person that I have met online. I enjoy many things British. I like the dry humor.. I like the slang, the culture.. I want to eat fish and chips in a newspaper. I want to walk into a pub and order a nice warm pint. This is now my time in life. Jesse is supposed to graduate May 15th. Than I am going to get him some type of loan for college and off he will go. When he is ready to spread his wings, I want to be able to spread mine. Everyone gotta run sometime, right? Italy, France and Germany also interest me. Kenny had always told me that the best way to appreciate the US is to travel the world. He had that opportunity afforded to him when he was in the service. I have been to many places in the US. I now know that the South is a wonderful place with it's own sense of values and culture. People from the South declare it proudly. It is not wise to talk smack when you are down there. Everyone owns a gun and they have no problem in using it. You will not trespass on their property without jeopardizing your life. In Baltimore the people own guns for different reasons, many not good ones. I still stay in touch with a few people I met while I lived in Georgia. They were and still are good friends. So my next goal is to what life is like overseas. Dreams are all we really have. That and hope...Peace..

You find freedom when you discover that you have lived life on your own terms. Have a nice trip Lori.

Whitemist- I am thankful that the money is there to pay the bills, even though I complain about the working part. Spreading my wings is something I really want to do..I also want to go to New England and check out some bed and breakfasts..I like small, quaint towns. The people are wonderful...Stay well...

WM- I am learning about that freedom. I think everyday is a nice trip, most times, lol...

follow your dreams and travel. i know about the stack of money thingy. im ready to throw in the towel. my wife says property is cheap in haiti... just a thought.

the south- u and i are alike as i am and you were misplaced northerners. it is a different world down here. (central florida)

i try to cover my NYC, (one of the boroughs) accent as much as i can. but when a preacher says "get the f*ck owda here" it sort of gives it away.

you are loved dear friend.
