DEUTERONOMY

I have not had the time either at home or at work to keep up with everyone. I appreciate all your comments and taking the time to read about Dad and Don. There is no doubt that these posts are pretty emotionally charged; I have had quite a number of years to think and talk about these times, and to put them in more of a big circle that connects the detail to a point thats very comfortable to me.

This last post about Don caught me a little off guard. I have told the story many times, and I always let "We were all problems" be the last line and moral to the story.
As I pasted the Photo of him at West Point, studying what looks to be Laws of Motion and Gravity, I was thnking I needed a caption that would introduce Don. It would be a "new" last line... so I typed in "Pretty smart, my Brother"...
And I realized that this was more than a caption for that Photo...and I just broke down... I lost it really hard...I'll never know anyone as smart as that man was...and what he said...'We were all problems " is exactly right; for everything God put on this Earth; all that breathes and walks and Multiplies....a lot of problems...

There are two more parts...
Barbara, try this...."You Know I can Feel It"
Griz- thanks, yes they were!
RDG- it is connected somewhat with my son, but not the way you might imagine... i need to get around to him one day
Mom- Straiht A's all through School he had!
annelisa- No more brothers, 1 sister on another Planet...

Take it easy on yourself. Writing Spotted Leopard had me whacked until about Tuesday! Can't do it justice unless you go back for a minute and live it all over again, eh? We understand and we are all here for you.

I love putting the pieces of your family together. I can see you probably caused them some heartburn, but look at it this way, it probably made you a better father.

We all learn by delving and putting pieces of our past together..only then can we truly move on. Sounds like you've been doing this for awhile. I think you've got your head on straight.
