public interest

August 20, 2009

In the spirit of public interest I have decided not to continue with my funeral story.

I will say that it has been a really insane summer. I feel orphaned. I always knew that no matter what happened in my life I always had a safe place to land with my grandpa. He’s gone. His ex wife and crazy son will most likely contest the will and somehow figure a way to take everything away from me even know they haven’t seen him in a good 30 years.

Everyday something new goes wrong. Kristie and her mom came down to visit, they got here August 10th and 2 hours north of my house their car engine blew. It was horrendous and currently they are stuck here in Cleveland, TX with no car. He should get a new engine in tomorrow and have them on the road by Monday. They seem to think  it will be tomorrow but that shit ain’t happenin. Oh, and that costs 3k.

Then 2 days after they got here my water heater went out. I called a handy man and he gave me an estimate of $575.00 to get a new one and have it installed. Instead I went to Home Depot and bought a new one and installed that bitch by myself. I can barely change a lightbulb, but I CANDRA SQUIRE bought a water heater, used pipe cutters, re routed pipe, hardwired in the water heater and it actually works and it got dark while doing this so it was finished by the light of one flashlight. You see I was too scared to leave any power on to the house so we were completely in the dark until I was done. You guys should have seen it. If anyone needs a water heater install I will give you a value deal of 200 clams. I think I shall go into business.

Kristie, Randi and I finally started our adventure last Thursday. We drove to Austin and stayed at the Austin Motel which has a sign shaped like a penis. We ate, drank and were merry. We saw the bats come out from under the bride and were satisfied.

Friday we went to San Antonio and went to the alamo, which I seriously knew nothing about. We stayed at a sweet ass B&B  http://www.ocaseybnb.com/ They have a sweet old dog named Conner and they make a kick ass breakfast.

Monday we went to the space center which makes me tear up every damn time I go on the tour. I don’t know why. Then we decided it was time to go explore Galveston. First we ended up on some strange little side beach that only mexicans seemed to know about. Next to us was about 20 mexican dudes having an AWESOME time. Then they started to race each other. When I looked up one dude just stripped off his pants and started running in his black and white man briefs believing that not having the shorts on would make him a little faster. I don’t know who won because I was laughing too hard at the man just bouncing all over town without a care in the world. After the beach we wanted a snack and a drink. We ended up at a place called Captain Jacks http://www.galveston.com/captainjacks/ We drank something called One Eyed Willies Wicked Water. We sang, laughed, got wasted as shit and 3 hours later ended up in the Holiday Inn lobby begging for beds. During our time at CJACKS we made some videos for bill. I feel obliged to include one here.

The past weeks have been a nightmare, comedy, and a million lessons. The only thing I can offer to you my friends is to just love. It’s all we have in the end. We never know when the last day will be, don’t fool yourself into believing you have more time. Don’t be unhappy, don’t be bad to each other- just love.

    I could have sworn I had already replied to this but my mind is on vacation for now..

    we’ve had many hot water heaters go out..We always do it ourselves.. A 200$ hot water heater beats the hell out of paying someone else almost 600..
