I posted that Leon Russell song earlier today because I really didn't want to talk. I woke up this morning with a screaming headache -I hate that. Came upstairs to get a Coke and some Ibuprofen, turned on the computer to see who I had offended over the weekend. Only one person, I must be getting better. Why does it always have to be someone special to you, that you offend? Maybe that's just me. Anyway...I posted Leon, but couldn't get the idea out of my head that there was something special about today. Other than my day to offend someone special (actually I offended two someone specials this weekend, but one called to let me have it). Anyway...
It's 4:00PM here and I finally realized what was special about today. It should be Michael's birthday. Unfortunately, Michael was killed a few years back. A little too painful for me to want to get into that here, but I do want to say 'I miss you Michael and I will always love you.' I wish there had been more time for you to grow into the man you should have been.
That's me and Michael.
Michael's dad sent me this picture for another purpose. I was pretty sure I would never post it here, but then, well, you know me or maybe you don't, but no matter.
Least any of you get the wrong idea. ( I am not seventeen,twenty or even thirty. I was once, but not anymore) Michael was a Chicago Policeman, killed in the line of duty. This is an old picture. He was my Godson.
