THE CHILLS

Last week I posted a revision of the story of the Thankgiving morning that my Dad died.
In the last two days I have happened upon a few sites with their own stories of loved ones with Alzheimers.
And last night in one of my Court sessions, I had occasion to tell a very condensed version of the year I buried a lot of people. The poor little counselor, a pretty 22 year-old Blonde, never saw it coming.
Water Baby saysI tell these stories way better than I actually write them, and the writing of them has only improved the way I tell them.
So as I closed my story yesterday evening with the words
"I like to think Dad stopped by for a two week visit before he went home"
I looked up and there were tears just running down this poor girls face.
As she reached for a tissue, she showed me her arm.
"That story gives me the chills" she said.

Anyway, scoot on down to the next post, "Smarter Than the Worm" for a bit of a happier REPOST from my long, long story.
Its a small, pleasant memory that came out of a big emotional story and there is something about it I like...and I plan to finish soon...
After all, its the little things that keep us going, yes?

Oh, that little Counselor Girl?
After listening to my shit it wouldn't surprise me if she resigned today!

You probably inspired her to stay on as a counselor for forever.

Pretty good, Bullets, when you can give 22 year old blonds goosebumps :) Way to go!

Alzheimer's is awful to watch in a loved one. My father is in the beginning stages. As Neil Young said (about his own father who died of it), "he was always in the moment". You're so great with words. I can see you with a guitar and writing songs. Do you?
*laughing* at your comment. A fist just isn't good enough, eh? :))

bullet,
the Byrds had a song that included..."But I was so much younger then ... I'm older than that now." These memories/experiences make us grow up so much faster...

Isn't it funny the way that works?

Hi Steve, I not necessarily need happy posts. Your stories are moving, captivating and uplifting whatever their flavour.

I do wonder how you became a Wanted Man though. Wanted man in Colorado, wanted man in ol' Cheyenne... But it may be better not placing it on the web. These things seem much more harmless then they are, although I don't think you want to be running for President next election. Still!

HEY, ALL!
I CAN ONLY HOPE THAT YOUR MEMRIES ARE AS PLEASANT AS MY OWN.


MATIJN!Man, I'm not really wanted in 14 counties!
I get that line from an ald Clint eastwood movie...
"The Good, the Bad, and the ugly"
If you haven't seen it you should!
Its a one of a kind.

Ah, good of you to clear that up. Not that I would have though less of you; I thought of you as some one-man A-team. The Good, the B & the U is one of my favorites! I saw it last week for the xth time.
