I just emailed a friend about our recent tight spot and smiled (a bit forced) to think of how Paige and I seem to be living a bit in the songs of our favorite singers. She, always crazy for Jon Bon Jovi, has "Livin' On A Prayer" and the Springsteen fan in me relates to a line which recurs in both "Atlantic City" and "Johnny 99." Like the struggling heroes in those songs, I've feel like I've "got debts no honest man can pay."
Hopefully, things will work out fine soon enough. I don't mind selling my car and walking to and from work, maybe even getting a part time job close to where I live, but we need to get the van's transmission fixed. There's no way around that. The beautiful wife and kids need to get to school.
I swallowed my pride a bit and even be a little tip jar in the sidebar of our blogs.
I have faith that we'll be fine. It's just a tough spot we're going through right now. Thanks for reading and putting up with what I'm writing. I hope to get back to other things as quickly as possible.
Two pics of the writer. One to show me in my current state and one to make you smile. Or smirk.
I wonder if I'd make it as a model. I think I look pretty good in a hat. ;)
