    Is this a pic of your dad?

    • katry Says:

      Yes, it is, Bob. We are on the ferry between France and England.

        My father would never think of taking me or my sister on a vacation trip. After my mother died he would travel by himself or with a friend because he thought we would crimp his style. Before he retired at 55 he would vacation in Acapulco Mexico over the Thanksgiving week. If I was lucky enough to get invited to Thanksgiving dinner at a friend’s house or I would have to eat out alone. One year I cooked a frozen Turkey roll and a baked sweet potato in my apartment and watched the football game alone.

        I’m sorry, Bob, that really sucks. I figure I lucked out with my dad.

        When I was an adult, we traveled several times together. I paid my way but my dad often treated for dinner or something special. One year my sister came on our trip to Belgium. It was the best fun!

        Holidays were together days for us.

        My father used to say that the only reason he had kids was because my mother wanted them.

    I can relate.

    On a more serious note. Some like Peterson, some don’t. A Canadian if it’s not patently obvious.

      My father and I were poles apart when it came to politics. We argued until a blow-out argument. After that, we avoided politics.

      My father was proud I chose to go to college and even prouder when I graduated. He wanted us to push ourselves to new places outside our realm of experiences.

    People will often have different political views. No big deal. If it causes problems talking about, do what ya’ll did; don’t talk about it. Problem solved. World just about the same.

    Your parents should drive you to do the best you can. Mine did. But we are old enough that young women were typically not expected to go to college (in those days). So women were pretty much on their own on how to proceed past becoming nurses or secretaries, or getting married and raising kids. Like you, some got an education.

      My parents told me they never thought they’d have children who went to college. They were thrilled I went. They didn’t want me to go to Africa for two years. They thought it might be dangerous and lonely. I told them I was going, and they told did all they could do help me with bags, clothes and the Peace Corps list for packing. They drove me to the airport, and the ride was quiet. We hugged a long time.

      Most of my childhood female friends went to college. It wasn’t a surprise but, for us, an expectation.

  7. Spaceman Says:

    You did launch off into a grand adventure. Which changed your life forever

    • katry Says:

      I am always thankful that twenty-one year old me chose the adventure. It did change my life and it changed me.
