What I want to know is how he got old so fast. Eight months ago was the last time I was home and he still looked like he was in his late 30's to early 40's. Now all of a sudden my father looks his age, 52.
Even if Mom hadn't told me, I would've known something was wrong the second I walked in the room. He was watching the Waltons, for Christ's sake. He hates the Waltons. It's still on, something about John-boy's girlfriend stealing something, I don't know. It's just something to look at so I can avoid looking at the lines on his face that seem to crack and splinter into more lines every time he speaks.
Only that's another thing, he's not, much. Speaking, that is. Usually you can't shut him up, always joking and teasing me about something or other. At first, I tried to force him to talk, but all I got were mumbles and yes/no answers. I ended up rambling aobut the camping trip the Waltons' place reminded me of, the one where I didn't want to get up in
Not really using dA any more. I browse, but I don't post.|
EDIT (Nov 2013): I'm also not really using Flickr any more. I'm not even browsing. Just got other stuff going on. But I check in here once in a while and have a look at all your new deviations.
