You Never Listen To Me!
I have been a mother for over four decades now, and I have to say--it does NOT get easier. I have grown up people call me up and ask for advise they never take. Never. I've gotten to the point where I give bad advise so they'll do the opposite and get it right. Even if I don't get credit, I don't have to hear them whine about how it all would have been fine if only they had listened to me.
Hidden Places (Part 6)
Previously in Part 5 Part 6: For all future references, let it be known: What Morty wants, Morty gets. Penny got pissed the other day. That’s the start of this whole thing, right there. Vance has a way of getting under her skin, that’s all. She’s been on-again, off again mad at him for years. She knows it; she tries to will it away; she can’t.
Lester never intended to come back to this place, and certainly he’d never considered bringing his daughter into the bayou.
Hidden Places (Part 5)
Previously, in Part 4 Part 5: I was amazed to be in this little place. Location: Middle of Nowhere. Little houses all in a row, seven on this street, the same on the next. Then a “Main Street” road, with a convenience store/gas station, and a miniature school building, and one more road, more like a cul-de-sac, with three slightly bigger houses.
Hidden Places (Part 4)
Continued from Part 3 I can’t tell you how frustrating it was, trying to keep track of Morty and Sid when they left us to check out the little town we’d found.
Hidden Places (Part 3)
Continued from Part 2 Morty motioned us off the road when we reached the spot where it curved sharply to the right and then started dropping into the valley below. We moved into the trees while making our way down closer to the warehouse we had seen the day before.
Hidden Places (Part 2)
Previously, in Part 1 Part 2 I’ve read a lot of books over the years, and in so many of them, little girls are asked who their hero is. They always answer, “Daddy.”
Hidden Places (Part 1)
Ever since we were small, I have looked to Penny for…well, everything. She’s smart. She’s brave. She faces every challenge with her shoulders back and her head high. She kept Dawn and me alive when things went to hell, and I don’t know anyone else who could have done that.
