Hi, Princess!

It’s cold out. I went to Walmart just to get a few things. You know, the Walmart I go to used to be a Caldor. When your mom was with me we used to shop there a lot. There was even a cashier we used to see all the time that was always very nice to both of us. Can’t remember her name.

Anyway, it’s not very much fun going to the store when everybody is Christmas shopping. I can’t even imagine how busy Santa must be right now!

Hi, Princess

I’m so very sorry that I haven’t written in such a long time. I wasn’t feeling well, then my computer got all messed up so I had to buy a new one. The problem is that when you are poor, you can only afford cheap stuff. Cheap stuff doesn’t last very long, so the poorer you are the more you have to spend money to replace the cheap stuff that you bought.

Please don’t grow up to be poor. The more money you have, more people will like you. The less money you have, fewer people will like you. I know it’s not fair, and I wish it wasn’t true, but it is true more likely than not.

That’s one¬†way I let your mommy down. I never made enough money for your mommy to go to college or all the other things rich people get.

But no matter what, I love you. Very, very, very much!

Love, Pop pop

Happy Halloween!

Hi, Princess!

Sorry I haven’t posted in a while, but I don’t want to write when I’m feeling depressed or anything. Any way, there’s a lot happening now.

The World Series is on now, between the Chicago Cubs, who haven’t won the World Series in a hundred years, and the Cleveland Indians, who haven’t won it since the 1940’s. So it’s a pretty big deal this year. I’m rooting for Cleveland, because they have a lot of ex-Red Sox players on the team. I don’t think your mommy would care too much. She wasn’t all that into baseball.

Halloween is coming up, and I remember your mommy really had fun wearing silly costumes and going all over the place.


Lastly, the presidential election is right around the corner. It’s a real mess this year because most people don’t like either candidate very much. It’s more about who you hate the least. I’m voting for Hillary, and I think your mommy would’ve probably voted for her, too.

Well, that’s about all for now. I just want you to know you are always in my thoughts.

Love you sooo much!

Hi Princess!

Leslie, I love you so much. It hurts me that I haven’t seen you in such a long time.

There’s a hurricane passing through Florida now. Your great-aunt Gigi moved down there just a few months ago. She says she’ll be alright, not to worry. I worry about everything!


Anyway, that’s all for now. Just wanted you to know I haven’t forgotten you. Never will.

Love you,
