the hell with ancestry
mine was stolen from me
when I asked about it
I was lied to
and that
by any stretch of the imagination
was . . .
flat out wrong
I have found out her name
finally . . .
I guess that is enough

your mom? sorry about that or hope am not farfetched here. I sure am with you there, ancestry is so important...apples don't fall far away from the tree, I for one would like to be sure I'm an apple, not a kiwi...
Glad you found your tree.

This place is aggravating, hardly anyone is around. I'll hang in I guess. There is you and Bluesy and every so often others.

My own "ancestry" is riddled with holes JerryPat and with everyone that could have filled them either gone or never were 'there' in the first place, I've never been closer to life itself. I feel you're one who has also become closer to life. Why do I feel this way?
Because you're still kicking in those upper 70's and whether you know it or not, you've helped people and by writing as you do, lead others to better understand what's happening in their own life.

...just bein' Bluesy

Thank you, Sir. You have just made my day. Thank you twice!

Don't you go give up on this site. Jerry. It's my only saving grace when I'm having bad days.So when the words don't come, I can just come here and get my inspirations from the poems you and the others write, you esp. do give meaning to stuff that comes out of me, nonsense or not.

Your thoughts and words, along with Bluesy's have given me inspiration. No, I won't leave until the day comes I will be the only one here.

Way to go ...that won't happen that you'll be by yourself here. There may be long periods of time I'm not here, but I always come back, consider this my home.
