  • Not like my dad

    I found out from my dad last night that he probably won’t be coming to our Thanksgiving feast. For the second year in a row he’ll chose to work overtime instead of spending the day with his grandkids. You know, it’s one thing to break a lifetime of promises to your own children, but it’s […]
