Thank you for sharing the slopes and the town. I imagine your kids know your story - but if they don't - make sure they see what I wrote and when they ask you about the Forest Gump thing - tell them all about the little concrete brick house your parents squeezed you into as a kid, tell them about moving from small town wind blown homes to small town wind blown homes with a dad who just scraped by barely enough. Tell them about why you volunteered to serve in Vietnam - so that some other man with kids might not have to be drafted. Tell them about holding fast in your dugout as the Viet Cong shells each landed closer than the next. Tell them about the people that pushed you into programming against your better judgement - and what you did with it.
Tell them about where you were in on 9-11 and why.
But if you haven't - make sure they know everything about how you met Betsy.
I don't want to embarrass you - but your life's take has to be told to your kids at the least. It is a great story - thank you. [Post edited by cswilliam at 03/13/2016 6:49PM]
