Condensed Version I had a family once;thought I did ok as hubby and dad. We had one sick from birth to nearly three and one mostly perfect, she crapped in my hand once. Buried it all on the 10th anniversary. Car wreck. It seems I have the golden oppertunity to do the dad thing with more insight than before, or buy a Harley and accept my early retirement as daddy. My preacher's wife said I ought to be a commodity since a guy with a job and no child support is hard to come by. Maybe so, maybe no. . . she did not offer me her daughter's phone number. So, what y'all think? Clarification: I live alone for 3 weeks at a time, but since there is only me; I leased my house in Dallas and stay with Mom/Dad a few days a month. Hobbies include R. C. Flying, Four Wheeler, and Ham Radio. try a search on KB5JWJ.
