Thank You

I want to take a moment and thank all of you who left such kind comments about the story on my father. Regular commenters know that I value your contributions and to that end, always try to acknowledge almost every single comment. I found and still find for that matter, myself totally incapable of responding to any of your heartfelt reactions. Odd I know but the fact that your comments were/are so impactful is the very reason that I find that no response is my best response.

My promise to you is that after I recover from this unexpectedly long post-father story refractory period; my next story will be as multi-topical, unfocused, superficial, sophomoric, unedited and hastily written as you’ve come to know. And finally, I’m sorry that I made some of you cry. You think you let the waterworks flow; I’m still wiping snot off of my keyboard.

Onward. Refractorily. Living for my upcoming LFG weekend.

Ewwwwe and awwww. Looking forward to the LFG update. She's probably grown 2 inches since your last LFG post.

ADG - you've yet to make me cry in a bad way. If you ever do, that's the day I'll stop reading your blog. And don't ever stop the multi-topical, unfocused, superficial, sophomoric, unedited and hastily wrtten posts at the other end of the spectrum. A mix of tears (in a good way) and silliness is what I live for.

You're the real deal mate.

I spent the day in Winchester, Virginia. While visiting this shop I thought of you and your father. You may want to case it out and write on the family history behind it.

I'm on the lookout for a nice tweed sport coat for this winter. I may ask your advice on locating one.

ADG,
I have been reading your post for over a year now and I am still in awe of your stories and photos. The LFG stories are great because it has allowed me to re-live those days when my two daughters were younger. I do forward the really good ones to both of them and say, “Does this sound familiar?”

I admire you for being able to share part of your existence with us all. As LBT said, “you are the real deal”.

TWJ, (one of your many minions.)

ADG said...

Garden and Gun...yes, we need something as light and basic as the Belgians Rubber story. I'll do it this weekend.

Hilton...thanks. By the way, I just got the unabridged version of A Moveable Feast as well as Hitchens' recommended companion read, Hemingway's Paris. Thanks for the reccs.

Tradmon...thanks.

LimeOne...thanks.

Nelle...sorry about the snot thing.

ADG said...

TWJ...Oops...thanks as well.

ADG,,,Did not know youe were a Hemingway buff...gotta read A.E. Hotchner's " Papa Hemingway" if you have not already...one of the best Bios there is...

Best closing line of a novel ever: "Isn't it pretty to think so Brett."
Keep up the good work !!

ADG said...

Main Liner...Thanks. I'll add it to the list. I'm amidst a bit of a Hemingway resurgence.

Suburban...already amidst parenting bliss....soccer practice...new soccer cleats last night...game today...homework...I feel useful again.

Behold troubled relationship aftermath paradoxicus, -a, -um: He who openeth an infected vein shall experience short-term bleeding while rewarding much needed oxygen to the site of the wound. Brother, romantics like you live from the bone [not that one], outward. Intensity first, reflection/refraction second, the cautious among us long for the ability to engage life as you do. The reason I read your words and have developed quite an appetite for your singular genre is that I learn something from you. So I'm batting the Thank You back to you, take it, keep up the extraordiary discourse.

Loved your Dad post. It took me a while to get up the nerve to read it, as Dad issues are pretty touchy for me right now, but it was worth the time, the tears and the half-box of Kleenex. It's a shame your Dad missed out on the man you grew up to be. Thanks.
