There hasn't been a post on this blog in 17 days!!!!! Everyones' playing Facebook I suppose. Let me told you a facebook story and then I'll give you a Hank Update.
My daughter is on facebook. Nearly ready to give birth,hormones raging and Daddy out on a oil rig---she finds her old boyfriend from high school. He's had 3 children by different women, and has no job and is currently married. While Daddy is still out, she gets manipulated into inviting him to move into her house and help him find a job (She made my son move home because "She needed the room for the baby and she couldn't afford to support him while he looked, BTW.)
Son in law (who is outstanding in every way, and I'd be proud to call my own son) comes back in and is faced by this. He doesn't like the guy, (smelled him out) and was faced with a simillar situation in his first marriage. When Daughter was home in Feb. (before this started) she told me she wasn't happy. Her husband is a great provider, gives her anything she wants, let her stay home and go to college online and be a stay at home Mom, to which I said "A DAMN FINE BETTER DEAL THAN YOUR OWN MOTHER GOT!!!!" and a "You're not happy? Welcome to being married kid, it's not peaches and cream every damn day. In fact, the first ELEVEN YEARS of my marriage were freakin' torture. You do what's right."
Now baby gets delivered, son in law is disgusted and has moved to his sister's house in town, and the Facebook Buddy is at the hospital with my kid. Son in law gets a text from him ( I don't do that shit either) and won't go see his own kid born because he shouldn't have to share an experience like that with a stranger. (I think so).
Daughter gets wild post-partum depression. Tells son in law in response to his "I Love You' "I can't say that to you right now." Facebook buddy STEALS DAUGHTER'S CAR, she reports it stolen, and it is recovered whith Buddy still in it by the Lafouche Parish Sheriff's Office. He gets put into jail and finds out that you might be a Southron from NC, but in Lafouche Parish, "You AIN'T FROM AROUND HERE", catches two ass beatings, one from the deputies and one from the inmates, and is released ROR next day so the parish don't have to pay for him to be treated in the hospital.
Son in law comes to house next day and finds him BACK IN THE HOUSE with 2 "Friends" both wearing sidearms, and DON'T look like off duty cops. Facebook Buddy screams at him and tells him to get out of the apartment HE PAYS FOR. That's about enough. He goes to a divorce atty and gets a restraining order. Either Facebook buddy gets out of the house, or he gets full custody of the children (BTW, the Lafouche Parish DA is a part time position, and he's son in law's divorce lawyer. Son in law tells daughter he needs about 6 months to figure out what he's gonna do. Pays 6 more months on the lease, takes daughter grocery shopping so the kids have food (all she has is GI Bill and 40% disability check from VA, don't go too far).
My son gets on facebook and lambastes both daughter and Facebook Buddy. She refuses to speak to her parents. Finally, after I send her an e-mail (she's still scared of Daddy) that says "For the first time in your life, I'm ashamed to be your father--you've Dis-honored my name and your husband's by your idiotic conduct" (an affair without sex is sometimes more of a betrayal than one where the woman gets pregnant--it's totally emotional in this case)
Daughter finally comes to her senses, gets rid of Facebook Buddy. BUT NOW, she's between a rock and a very hard place. Husband still loves her---but when he's away 6 months out of the year, how do you trust her now? I've been there myself. Whatcha gonna do ????
HAD IT NOT FOR FACEBOOK, THE BREAK-UP OF MY KID'S MARRIAGE WOULD NEVER HAVE HAPPPENED!!!!!!
We're still a family blog, so TAKE YOUR FACEBOOK AND STICK IN YOUR DIDI WITH A WAH-WAH BRUSH!!!!!
Excerpt from e-mail sent to Dr Chris yesterday. "healing slowly. Last 3 weeks, radiation burns on neck and chest/back have healed. Lost total of 80 lbs, only 40 away from where I was at age 18. Stamina and fatigue problems still phase me out. Still on feeding tube, no solid food. Can FINALLY drink carbonated beverages without pain. Swallowing without pain (a great relief). Oncologist says "You're not a patient man" my reply: "It doesn't run in my family".
Let's get some comments---stop putting your life on the internet for the world to see---IMO Facebook and other social networking websites are the spawn of the devil, and used by the government to lull the populace into complacency so they can do whatever the hell they want. And it SEEMS TO BE WORKING.
