I need to visit a few folks that I haven’t seen in a while, Mrs. Orear an old grade school teacher who’s teaching over at St. Isidore’s now in Danville, Father Pat who’s over at some church near me, and Mr. Anderson (Daddy-yo). I ran into Daddy-yo in January but didn’t get to talk to him much. Hadn’t been comfortable chatting with him since he had gotten me my first job out of college. I ended up not liking that job very much, left as soon as I could, and high-tailed it over to Netscape.
Daddy-yo was Troop 89’s Scoutmaster. He’s very old school, and is partly why I’m old school. He had one rule to live by that I still follow, take care of your belly and your back. That’s it. Makes life easy when you break it down like that – meaning make sure you eat, and have clothes on your back/roof over your head.
