Helen on the left--grad assistant at UT, Austin--and Mary on right, senior at THE University of Florida. Suffice it too say consider them my pride and joy and a reason to keep on living.
They and the sister who still talks to me showed kindness by visiting me at Island Hell where I exist in a state of purgtory, not quite confined but unable to propel myself up the inclined driveway to escape to nearby bar.
Dang, feel some spiritous liquids in my near future but shhhh, don't tell anyone. If God made liquor to swurvive family holidays, maybe He does show some empathy (Sorry for patriarchal phrasing).
