One of the fortunate ones

I had two moms, one I never met and one who raised me. Not bad for a dumbass born in Philadelphia. My birth mom, who I discovered quite accidentally, sounds like a wonderful woman who raised a whole passel of kids under somewhat difficult conditions. I wish I had met her.

The mom who raised me steered a smaller brood through somewhat different obstacles, but obstacles are obstacles. She did a masterful job, she was a wonderful mom.

I wish they had met. I wish I had them both…I sure as hell needed it.

  2. This forum needed shaking up and you’ve just done that. Great post!

  3. I use this glue all the time. Just use really small dabs on the back of each piece. Just stay away from the edges so the applique stitches are easy to do. I do not do needle turn but the starch method. I find that I get great shapes and pretty good points. I hope you bought the blue pin things to keep the nozzle cleaned out. It is really hard to keep the glue running when the tip gets clogged.

  4. Gee whiz, and I thought this would be hard to find out.

  13. One of my favorite Christmas memories is when my older brother had made an elaborate scavenger hunt for my gift from him. It was really wonderful that he has put all that time and effort and thought into me. He was only 14 at the time, but already had such a giving heart.

  21. Hey Field a few day ago we had a Policeman respond to kids drinking on the street. The kid shot and killed him . The Policeman was young and had two kids. The neiborhood had a vigil for him.What can I say. We need to get some socialogist together to solve this because I can’t think of anything about this. This is what’s strange about it, he was loved and known it the neiborhood. The kid that did it was 19.

  25. Ein breira indeed, yet many of those Israeli leaders who through the decades so seem to budge under foreign or domestic political pressure started out as very courageous ordinary men wanting nothing more than returning to their jobs and family. Apparently seeing the dependence of maintaining a stability in local society and foreign relationship requires maneuvers anybody not close to the top of the political echelon or at the helm of a state and thus less informed about the full reality would consider ridiculous and inconceivable.

  26. You’ve really impressed me with that answer!

  30. Hilarious. I’ve been down the primrose path of online dating and garnered more than a few great stories. Not as many outright lying liars as some, it would seem, but enough to send me skittering back to being set up by friends! I think you wear the Loverboy red leather pants and just be yourself. Become the pants…

  31. I don’t get why Larry is still in the spot-light. He needs to stop milking it and go away. Let his daughter grow up like a normal kid and not with cameras in her face.

  32. anization was founded in 1970 by Wade Rathke, George Wiley and Gary Delgado. Wade Rathke's brother embezzled $948,607 from the group and affiliated charitable organizations in 1999 and 2000, but ACORN executives did not inform law enforcement. A whistleblower revealed the fraud in 2008, leading to the departure of both Dale and Wade Rathke. The National Labor Relations Board also found that ACORN attempted to thwart union organizing efforts within its own organization by firing two workers attempting to unionize ACORN.

  33. I feel satisfied after reading that one.

  34. Always refreshing to hear a rational answer.

  35. You are very right that the first few steps are the most important and often the hardest. I’ve always found writing what you need to do down in a list and then crossing each one off is a good way of getting strated. Interesting blog.
