What Went Wrong?




Keeping this short as my keyboard's messing up, low on batteries. Actually got a lot done by handwriting, not typing. I had a bunch of photos I wanted scanned, and was able to complete that task as well. (I will let the spell-checker fix the words, as the n and c are not working. If that were the only problem, the space bar often does not work.) So I came across one I took of my dad circa 1980 or so, in the basement of our old house. I like that there are three of him in the photo. The reflection and the framed shot, which was taken in the parking lot of Old Chicago. That was a failed indoor amusement park, but you can still see the interior in the 1977 film THE FURY. So, there's my dad and then there's me. What went wrong?

Alas, your dad just didn't quite have your charm.

I think a lot of us look back and ask, 'what went wrong?'

I don't think anything went wrong. Sounds like you've got quite a lot in common with your old man.

Bwah ha!

I've been meaning to comment that I see maybe one reason why you like Bobby the Mitch...your dad looks a lot like him in that photo!

Meh, you're not so scary. But that sign is!

:o)
