I got an email this morning from my grand son who is stationed in Okinawa, Japan with the Army and of course his wife is there with him. It's her home country not sure if she is from that city or not I never asked her when they were here. Anyway this little daughter is their second child she had on this one tour. Both are girls and one was born a year ago in October 2011!
I kept his car here and he bought a get-around vehicle to make do until they return state side. He had just purchased a new Hyundai before he got orders to go overseas and didn't want to take it overseas. The way they drive over there I couldn't blame him. This daughter entered this world at 1055AM on 6May2013 by the name of Airi May King. He tells me the name is pronounced like "Eye Ree" and mom and baby is doing well. She was 7 lbs., 3 oz. and 19 inches tall.
That makes 5 great grand I know about. My son got three and this is my daughter's only son and now has his own 2kids, both girls, so that tells me if I live long enough I could make Great, Great Grand dad soon because My son's daughter is about due age wise to start her own family. Boy I just started feeling old!! The big thing I hate is my children's mother, my first wife passed in 1998 and only saw one of her great grand kids by our son.
Right now my daughter is serving time in state prison and not due for release until 2016 but her son, my grand son is due back from Japan pretty soon I think to find his mom there by her own doings. He knows she is in there and writes her all the time from Japan. I just pray this is her final lesson and she learns you can't commit a crime without doing the time. But I guess there are many grand mothers and sons that didn't listen to their parents cry to be good kids.
I was hard headed too but my mother told me just one time that if the other boy's mothers didn't get me out I would just be there until I did my time no matter how long it was. The next week I went and joined the Army. Those boys I was running with are all dead now and been dead a long, long time. I can't see myself sitting in a jail or doing time in prison for something I know not to do because I don't have the time to pay for a crime!
Right today I would rather help a person any way I could than cause harm to them. Even as a stroke survivor I enjoy being free to do what I want to do when I want to do it. I suppose with 22 years of Army service to my country I have seen enough war, fighting and shooting. I will go to my grave with a bullet still in my body that my third wife put there and I did not return fire. She had two boys to raise up to be good men so I didn't press any charges. I just walked away after my hospital stay. She got the car, the house and everything in it while I got my clothes and departed without looking back!
Today here I am a great grand father again and feel pretty good about that with a new wife of 17 years now who loves me dearly and I'm in love with her for life! I told her when we hit 16 years married that if she quit screwing or cooking I'm still not going any place from our home. That's my bottom line so help me God! She means that much to me and my life! I've had the rest and now I know I got the best I ever had. I ain't no fool and God is watching over me!
