Tinker Was Badass

One Summer when I was 7, my grandmother and I drove to Albany NY to visit her sister for the afternoon. Her sister was married to a scary guy who didn’t like kids so I kept my distance. I had never met my second cousin, Tinker, before this visit. She was nice enough to let me ride around in her car that afternoon as she sought out someone to buy beer. I was sworn to secrecy. I was also not supposed to tell anyone that she smoked. At 7, Tinker was really cool.

Trains and Cars

Having a child has made me realize that the years pass so very fast. You’ll never have another chance to get this day back so you better make it count. It’s easy to get caught up in the struggles of every day life and overlook what is right in front of you. I used to be driven to complete home improvement tasks. I used to be uptight about trivial things. Not any more. Now I just want to play GeoTrax and Hot Wheels with our girl.
