Maybe it's the T.B.I..........


Or the A.D.D.......or maybe, by G-d, it's just me.

Probably the latter. I had this flashgun mind picture last night while meditating of ol' Wollf.....Eighty three years old.....

You know that old Man you see at Denny's or IHOP, every weekend, sitting and having breakfast.....and you finally notice, after a month or so of Sundays, that he's having breakfast with a different Lady each time?

That's the picture I had.......kinda sad.....rather be making breakfast for just The One......*Crap*.......

Adjust and Overcome.

Done, and with more respect than might be necessary or called for.

Then..let's get on with Life and Raising the Cubs!!!

I asked Bigger Wolf if he knew what today was. He's fifteen, and a normal young teenage Cub.....he said, "Thursday......I'm Hungry, can we eat?"

I knew it was hopeless......Because it's Thursday, it means Fast Food Night. Dropped him at the Taco-Taco place and ran off to pick up Lil' Wollfie....asked him the same question......

"Today?"...he says and grins...."Today is Mayday for the commies and the Illegal Aliens, and it's Law Day, where we're s'posed to be thankful for General Eisenhower, and it' Holocaust Remembrance Day".........

Then I asked this entirely too intelligent ten year old......"What do you think is the most important?"

"The Jewish thing, Sire.....I wish we could bring that guy Hitler back to life....and kill him as many times as he killed all those poor people......and then kill him again the same way, and then.......stick his head on a spike...."

Hory Clap.....I didn't really know what to say, he's Me, but without the TBI......

I ended up saying, "Cub, killing ANY other Human Being is Horrible. You really feel what you just said?"

"Sire, we're Warriors", he said, "Like you say, Some people really need killin', and we are Those...."

Suffice it to say, or this is going to be Really Long......

The Cub gets it. He frightens me, in that he Is me....and I want him to be safe. But I'm 500% Proud that I have one that will be there for you.....and for me, cuz I'll be too old one day too.....

And don't worry.....I just tucked Lil Wolfie in bed, and before he kissed me goodnite he said, "Never again, right?"

I said, "Not as long as we have Men like you and me, Wolfie, Never again."

Snuggled.....I needed it tonight, smooched in a manly way and plumped his pillow....

Damm I'm proud of him.....it's better than dwelling on other crap, I'm here to tell
ya.....

G'nite Friends.
Tough times happen. Tough People survive.........right?

Dammit, I hope so..........

Rather emotional after reading this. Not sure why. So young... yet so old. "Where did all the children go?" *teary eyed*

Wolfie.... your lil wolfie is rightly named... It is scary tho (in a reassuring kinda way) the grasp he has on death, fighting, honur, and life.... wolfie, you are raising 2 wonderful boys who will be great men who will always make their sire proud :)
take it easy wolf.
its times like this, when i see kids and the hope for the furture they bring... its when i wish i could walk that path too...the path of having and of raising kids
take it easy
*hugs*

they grow so fast, and many times wiser beyond their years.... just children trying to fill adult shoes..... slow down my angels.

but wollf, your little cub is right there.... aware, understanding, and honest.... you're doing right by him....

when i see my eldest (15 now) it's scary the things that comes out of his mouth... he knows what's going on..... i just wish i could give him more, but 3000 miles is a large gap. i can only pray he will turn out to be the amazing man i know he can be.... god, i miss him.................
