The water gets deeper, 

 and there are sharks. Have a very good summer.

It might seem like a blog sometimes, but I'm having a conversation with somebody I miss.

Happy Birthday to your girl. What a lovely child.

Happy birthday indeed.

(I understand your last completely.)

Thanks Buck, she's not lost to me but so far away.

It's an annual event which tends to make me introspective. I lose a few days each year thinking of the 'might have beens.' I figure this will remain for awhile and be.

Belated Birthday Greetings to your little girl.

For a host of reasons not now required; I retained custody of my son and daughter, which was a struggle worth struggling over! Now my daughter and her two daughters have moved 400 miles away to the South-West of England. Thank Gawd for iMac FaceTime, and Skype.

Yours Aye.

I think we never feel older after we have children. We stay as the dads we were and our girls never grow old. I had the one. I talked to her last night on the far side of America and it was wonderful. She just turned 11. Over here child custody is too hurtful to discuss. I'll do it later.

Oh God, are you lucky and fortunate.
