First things first y’all! Today is Monday September 17, 2018 and it means that I have been sober for two months and thirty days or rather yet, ninety-one days and as always, I feel like Tony the fucking tiger… GRRRRREAT! No anxiety, no depression, no hangover, no regrets… I mean nothing!

As for today, It’s Monday and it only means one thing… it’s back to the salt mines for me. To be honest with you, when I woke up this morning, I really, really, really thought about calling in to request a vacation day, but the boss (my wife) said no. Plus over the weekend, they had installed new carpet at the salt mines, so I had to make sure that I got all my shit back, since everything was numbered. My son decided to stay home today, but I don’t blame him, since he was celebrating his birthday yesterday. Well, I guess I have to move my money makers… my hands that is!… I work in front a computer the entire day, you sick puppies.

As for my loyal 1.5 readers, I just hope that wherever you are in this crazy planet of ours, you are having a good morning, good afternoon, good evening or good night. Always try to enjoy it to the fullest and don’t let nothing or nobody fuck it up for you no matter what happens.

What up! What up! What up kids! Today is Sunday September 16, 2018 and it means that I have been sober for two months and twenty-nine days or better yet, ninety days in total. As always, I feel like Tony the tiger… GRRRRREAT!

On a birthday celebration note! Even though my son’s official twenty-fourth birthday is today, but because he is an American football fan, he asked that we went out and celebrate it last night instead, so we did. He wanted to do that, in order for him to spend Sunday, watching all the football games on TV. I have to say, that we all had a really good time having dinner together. The main thing is, that he has come a very long way and has been accomplishing a lot of goals in the last few years.  Right now he is attending college, because he wants to become a license electrician. As a matter of fact, while attending school, he is already working in that field, which makes my wife and I really happy. Last night, after we dropped off my wife and daughter, we drove around for a while looking for parking. Meanwhile, we had some really good conversations about school, work, the neighborhood and even about how young men and women his age, are throwing their lives away by committing crimes, selling drugs, not getting an education or a job. I have to say, that just like my wife and I, our kids went through what I like to call “their crazy teenage years”, but eventually, they opened up their eyes and realized, that my wife and I were right, they had to get their shit together and indeed they did.

As for my loyal 1.5 readers, I just hope that wherever you are in this crazy planet of ours, you are having a good morning, good afternoon, good evening or good night. Always try to enjoy it to the fullest and don’t let nothing or nobody fuck it up for you no matter what happens.

Thinking About My Dead Father

TTV - Dead Father - 1

First things first my peeps! Today is Wednesday September 12, 2018 and it means that I have been sober for two months and twenty-five days or rather yet, a total of eighty-six days. As always, I feel like Tony the tiger… GRRRRREAT!

On a father note! For some weird reason, this morning I woke up thinking about my dead father. You see, one day when I was around eleven or twelve years old, while no one was home, my father packed his clothes up and just walked out of our lives. For twelve years, we didn’t know if he was dead or alive or where he was. One day, the same way that he disappeared from our lives, he reappeared. That was when I was around twenty-four years old. As a matter of fact, I went to meet him with a couple of my sisters, only because my mother asked me to multiple times, not because I wanted to see him at all. The funniest thing is, that he introduced himself to me as a stranger would, not knowing that out of nine children that my mother had with my him, I was his youngest one and his only boy. For a while, I blame him for anything and everything went wrong in my life. But after a while, I started to credit him for the type of man and human being that I turned out to be… because I always promised myself, that I will not be like him. The one thing that I can say is, that no matter what happened to my family and no matter what we went through without of him… I didn’t turn out to be a bad son, brother, husband and father after all. That’s why I have to thank all the people who were involved in my life as I grew up and became a man, specially all the women. I have to say, that this morning has been truly strange and weird to say the least. I really don’t know what to make of it.

As for my loyal five to ten readers, I just hope that wherever you are in this crazy planet of ours, you are having a good morning, good afternoon, good evening or good night. Always try to enjoy it to the fullest and don’t let nothing or nobody fuck it up for you no matter what happens.

A Quick Talk With My Son

What up! What up! What up y’all! Today is Thursday August 30, 2018 and it means that I have been sober for two months and twelve days or better yet, seventy-three days in total. As always, I feel like Tony the fucking tiger… GRRRRREAT!

On a father son talk note! As my son and I were getting ready to go to the salt mines this morning, we had a very interesting talk about work. I told him about my thirty-three years of experience working for different companies and about the things that I’ve learned and the people who I met throughout those years. I mean, don’t get me wrong because of my previous post about not giving advice to my kids. It’s just that throughout the years, I’ve learned to give advice to them, only when they come to me and ask for it. I just don’t want them to feel, as if I’m intruding in their personal lives. I also want them to learn how to make their own decisions and on top of that, how to make the right ones. One thing that they have always known is, that they can come to me anytime with any question or problem and I will sit and listen and not judge them or scold them. Boy! How I wish I had parents like me! The reality of it all is, that looking back now, compared to other parents, after all was said and done, my parents were pretty good. Hey! Just look how I turned out!
