Writer's Block: Father nature

What is your fondest childhood memory of your father or grandfather?

what a question. seriously. my dad left when i was 8, disappeared and reappeared throughout adolescence, and finally vanished around age 21. i found him again....right around age 32, and realised i just couldn't deal with yet another vanishing act.

so, i vanished first.

when he died a couple of years later, my mom phoned me. she found out from a random google search that turned up his obit. when i called his current, and 6th wife, all she could say was "why didn't you ever call him back? you broke his heart."

oh.

okay, then.

So he told her you broke his heart, but didn't bother to mention he broke yours...
