And after the dick comes food. Man really messed that
one up in his both Darwinian and spiritual effort to feed every human on the planet.
St. Hugh had it right. He celebrated Eve, but Man stays hung up on his mistrust of sex, and so the problem persists. Now you have to put food and water into each and every one of these bodies. Meanwhile, Adam has to continue his work in a more troublesome garden.
I put tobacco out of my system in 1997. It was in a hotel room on New Years eve in Naperville, IL. I said to my girlfriend, "Next year, I want to quit smoking." I had thought that would buy me a year. My girlfriend quit smoking a week later, that's how she is. That's why I later married her. I dated her because she was very pretty and sweet, and I married her because of that and because I saw there in the hotel room that she was super good for this undisciplined and disorganized man then twice her age (I would later tell her, "Next time, I'm gonna have to find a girl three times younger," and now here is Crystal with her twenty-two years for my sixty-six.And for icing on this shitcake, I was then new to AA and recently divorced. Quite a catch. What a family.
I will be forever grateful to her mother, anything but the stereotyped mother-in-law for accepting me so readily. The woman is one of the strongest humans I have ever known. Her husband had passed eleven years prior, and she was left to raise six children alongside her sister who was raising five with her husband, Bob, one of the kindest and strongest, most authentic people I have ever known. That Vietnam War helicopter pilot coal salesman life-long (Wallace says to spell it)
died in the wool card-carrying member of the Republican party and Ed Asner looked like him and constructed the character, Lou Grant to reveal much of Bob McCabe's true character to the world beyond Katie's Uncle Bob's reach which was pretty extensive with all the family and friends. And once Bob McCabe gave his word on anything he never reached again to retrieve it. That is why he stands next to Jesus the Word of Nazareth in the highest echelon of heaven because all who picture Bob McCabe now see him through loving eyes, except for the environmentalists who still hold him accountable for engaging in the process, long before anti-coal became a movement. I see a man living the wWord he keeps. It was love at first sight on my end. All Bob must have seen was the light in his niece's eyes, and heard the stories Katie had been sharing with her cousins, his daughters. And when I stepped in the room that night to meet her family, I was meeting the Waltons. It took me years to stop confusing Katie's mom with her aunt. They are both very beautiful inside and out. And because Katie's dad was gone, Bob walked around with both of them mainly because each of the sister's was the other's lifelong best friend. This guy showed me how its done, I paid an arm and a leg to have Bob McCabe's life. He was also the happiest man I had ever known, You could see he held gratitude in the forefront of his mind.
For me, this was was love at first sight. I was afraid of what he was looking at, I was almost his age, mid-forties to early fifties, and there I was standing there with his niece and goddaughter trying to get in his house to steal her away from his heavily Irish brood. Maybe that's why they accepted me so instantaneously, faster than it is taking me to type out this sentence with only the middle finger of my shaky left hand while my right arm is over there, a weight of growing concern. ,
The Vietnam veteran, Republican, Roman Catholic usher every Sunday with his wife, her sister and mother. See what I mean? Pimping, that's Hefner at play. I don't which one of them saw me, but they all invited me into the house, family, heart, hearth. And none of them ever turned on this long=haired, admitted drunk recently divorced, father and closer to his age than hers .
And here I am again, at heavens door with Bob McCabe. I don t know if this is help or a gift, same difference. Corona said to go get him. That's an example we can all use right now as Covid-19 chases us into our homes, hearts, hearths into our families, How well is this American dream working for me, take a close look at my life. In A.A. Its the fourth step, as the heart is the fourth chakra as Jeff Collins started to see Kurt Hudgens, Ken Kesey, Jim V. Jesus of Nazareth and more and more David Foster Wallace drawn there by Kurt Hudgens and captured by Kesey's work on the Bridge of American Dreams, stayed and created carteblox
And I am anxious to see him again, but I'm not going to hasten my death to do it. I know where to find Bob McCabe. All I gotta do is peek into the higher echelons of Heaven. See what he's doing? Bob McCabe is at it again. He is leading me into another room in Heaven, That's what Bob McCabe did when he met me at his front door and took me into his family in less time it is taking me to type this sentence between using one finger and having the cursor jump all over the place and intermittantly deleting large passages of text and having to type t things three times over.
This is exactly like driving on the expressway when its under construction and traffic is heavy'
I'm switching lanes
Along with Katie came her sisters, cousins, and friends and I am surrounded by women roughly half my age. I was loving life side by side
And the memories of Katie's father, Dan Gibbs are more legendary still and hers to tell since she wrote the book.
