The human spirit

I wrote earlier today about the Grapes of Wrath and the "okies". To me this in not a term that should be construed as an insult. These were people who endured and overcame the depression by working their way west.

My ex-wife's grandparents were Okies and they were damn proud of it. To this day, I send Grandma flowers and cards. She is tough, resilient and independent.

My own grandparents were equally amazing people and I love the three I knew unreservedly and unashamedly. Just writing about them makes me tear up and tells me how much I miss them no longer being alongside me and in my life. My grandfather on my mum's side died of cancer (and according to my mum, WW2) when I was 3 so I never knew him. My mum said he doted on me and I used to sit in his hospital bed with him for hours.

My other grandfather lived to be 90 and he survived being a London fireman all through World War 2. He was blown up, burned up, and had houses fall on him and he went back for more. He was "old school" Glasgow: tough, independent, cantankerous and loving. He lost 15 brothers in the war.

His wife was from Belfast and was the only person who could control him. She had his dinner ready at 6 o'clock on the dot for 50 years and kept his house clean. She came across as a dotty Irishwoman and when she died we found out she had saved over $100,000 throughout her life from what was left over from the housekeeping money she got from my grandad.

My mum's mother was the most extraordinary person that I have ever been privileged to come across. She was a true cockney and was the life of any party. All of my life, she never had any money or remotely extravagant possessions - she was poor. Yet going to stay with her was an incredible treat: it meant a trip to the pub and singing along as she played the piano. To this day, a five dollar bill reminds me of her as this was her traditional birthday gift to me: even when I was in my 20s. It was symbolic. It was meant for me to have a drink on her.

Every year, there are four very special Christmas tree ornaments that go on my tree. Each one represents one of my grandparents and they are the first four ornaments on the tree as they get pride of place.

To me, this blog is so inadequate to really put into words what these four diverse people mean to me. The important thing is that they had amazing lives and that I can reflect that just a portion of them is in me. They were the greatest generation and I do not know if I can ever live up to them.

Awwww, man... des it have to be just one?

Let's see... The ballad of PK and Woody? Or maybe [post 109816] was a better effort? Then again, [post 142059] was well thought out and had positive responses... God/dess' gifts to PK, or, I am not ALL gloom and doom! was also good.

Hmm... guess my current fave would have to be [post 135281], because of a comment I received there

See? I did pick just one, after all!

Oh, and as for Minnie the Moocher... if you listen to it carefully, it's the story of an opium-smoking stripper

One of my favorites is Lost in passionate memories.. It's a bit on the sad side, but it reflects where I am in my life at this point.

My favourite one is Talking of taste.... followed closely by I want you.... The first because I think I shocked a few people by my frankness, and the second because I always smile when I think of this man... and dammit... I still want him!!

HAS to be this one:

Get a Barn!

Background Music: Moos, clucks, squeals, and bleets.

This is lovingly dedicated to travelingintexas for his wonderful inspiration.

"Get a barn! Get a barn!"
Oh no this just will not do.
I refuse to fornicate
Amongst the pig and sheep poo poo.

"Get a barn! Get a barn!"
Fellatio in the hay?
Allergies causing MY head to swell,
In this I cannot play.

"Get a barn! Get a barn!"
I prefer something more spicy.
Although thoughts of a wrangler's rope,
I admit I find enticing.

"Get a barn! Ewwwwwwwwww...get a barn!"
Dear T I've heard your cries.
But the farmer quickly told me
It's space you occupied.

"In the barn! Yes, in the barn!
Oh look, I found your mojo!
I'll avoid the risk of the blog boot
No details, oh no no!"

Love,
DTOX

I think DT has more blogs than the rest of us combined. Take all hers away and AdultFriendFinder's total blog count is 16.

I think my most favorite blogs are the ones about my fathers illness and eventual death. All my blogs come straight from my heart and emotions, but my father blogs show my true emotions and love I had for that wonderful man. In the order I wrote them.

Life Support, My Morbid Personality, He's Home, He's Home, It seemed to happen so fast., Memories, Thinkgs you don't say to someone who is mourning, Emotions, Button Hole , The dust is settling , Changing to a positive attitude, Missing him, Thanks Hospice!, Why?, Memories and Mourning, Is He Really Here With Us?, Comfort, Miracles, Property, Property, Holidays Without Him.

Trav - I've not received as many 'Pulitzer Prizes' for my blog postings as you, but one that was kind of fun, is still timely with Christmas approaching and which is currently nominated for the highly prestigious 'Dan Rather Honesty in Journalism Award' is the following very popular post:
TANTALIZINGLY TITILLATING TUESDAY - Santa and His Reindeer

A lil sampling of some of my favorite posts from my blog:

[post 129319]
Nazi Pope! Nazi Pope! Nazi Pope! Fuck off!
these two go together [post 145572] and [post 155331]

Of all the writers on this site, the one I feel that has the greatest talent and gift, is [blog sj365]. One post of hers that stands out in my mind is one where she describes the "why" of her writing, but the "how" still remains a magical mystery. she sells sanctuary... I would recommend reading all of her posts, I have.

Well, I'm going to go against the grain and just list my favorite post, but this one isn't by me, it's by someone else.... [post 168809] . I think this is the most heartfelt and touching post that I've read on here.

My apologies must go out to [blog voodooguru1], for misnaming one of his posts for mine. Nazi Pope! Nazi Pope! Nazi Pope! Fuck off! is his. either I entered wrong number or the 'big computer in the sky' did. Sorry, dude.

My post should have read, [post 134339] instead.

Your indulgence, please
