cars. who'd have them






last night sitting home eating some excellent pasta from Deslavos...resting on my night off when the phone rang...by the way last night major weather threats everywhere...my son phones...'dad i'm on the way to pick up the engagement ring my car just stopped i'm on the highway what should i do?' I ask a reasonable question 'did you purchased AAA like i asked you to the last time i had to drive to get the tow truck? Ans:'nope i was going to purchase AAA yesterday but... so to make a long story short...i jump into my car call AAA head south meet my son, call AAA agian, wait... car heads north on tow truck, son is dropped off at wendys i head home...

anyway in the end it was a good connection, we had a good laugh, and talk... the car? we'll see...i offered to sell him mine if he takes over the payments...

returned home to veg and saw a program of a family whose son was killed in Iraq...a touching story / moment was when the mom was making pancakes and the dad went in to be with his son...the son was under the covers, the dad laid down on the bed next to him and gave him a big hug...the mom just happened to walk in during the caring hug...made her smile...dad's reply, 'he reminded me of when he was a child, i wanted to hug him and pat him on the head so i did... i'll take the memory of our hug to my death...

car's who'd have them...memories of care, love and connection with those that matter priceless
