Born in the coal region of Pennsylvania where I spent my early years questioning everything.
I've navigated my way through so many of life's terms that my head still spins.
Today, I just give with all I've got. Whether I have it or not.
One Last Chance
My father called me a “foreigner” for being my brother’s friend. That made me unwelcome in my father’s eyes because my brother was gay. Dad kicked Andy out of the house in 1968 when he was 18. He went to live with another family, finished high school and, while trying to please his parents, he married and had two children.
Meeting Edna in October of 2015 was little more than a one-sided exchange. I knocked on her door at approximately 2:20 PM one Wednesday afternoon to deliver the weekly medicine packet that the pharmacist had just finished preparing. I was warned ahead of time that she could be "difficult."
Following Program In Living Color
So I'm at Wal-Mart at 2:30 this morning, come home with about $90 in stuff, bananas, low fat, low sodium turkey, cheese, bread without grain or seeds, toilet paper, paper towels and germ free handi-wipes in quantities unmatched by normal human beings.
