take care of your belly and your back

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.

  1. rafael,

  2. He hooked me up with his accounting firm, but it turned out I wasn't much of an accountant. Plus, the job I left accounting for was this start-up called Netscape and couldn't turn it down.
