Life Among the Never-Winged

Once upon a time I was writing a book called, "Just Another Love Letter", about angels behaving badly. Now I just quietly ask myself each day, "What the hell am I doing?"

My friends always knew I was going to hell. My only hope is that God likes good jokes and bad redheads.

    Not sure what to say

    I'd started a post about a wonderful, relaxing weekend, thanks to Mr. Clowncar and Peewee. But now I've just learned that my father-in-law is going in to surgery right now, and has a 50-50 chance of coming out again.

    Someone, please tell me how to explain this to the boyos.

    I'm very sorry to hear that. I think you have to wait and see how it turns out before you say anything. I haven't read the current advice books on this subject but I believe in being truthful but gentle. The thorny one for me is the question, "Where is he?" My honest answer is that I don't know. Nobody knows. People believe different things but we have no way of knowing. We have to wait and see until we each get there.

    Thanks, Bud. Just got an update that he is coming through surgery nicely. The boyos are asleep, so it's something I can think about tomorrow. Now I'm just going to focus on O when he gets home.

    Yikes. Emergency stuff always freaks me out. The boyos will understand in a boyo way. They don't have to understand it in an adult way. Give the information and they'll explain it to you and each other.

    nixxie: Thank you!!

    JT: Thank you. Take care of yourself!

    Popeye: You are right on the nose. They are discussing it with each other in their own terms. I'm so happy I had two. Thanks for the advice.
