I moved to Arkansas, bought some rural country land,a pretty large country ranch house (ripped out carpet and put in hardwood- ewww cat dander in carpet!) and two pickup trucks, got a government grant for a high tunnel,96 x 26x and started an organic farm "Little Wildcat Farm" ; then started a fermented pickle business (PICKLEHAUS) to launch this spring- working with U of A Food Science department and U of A Small business development center. Got more cats, have 8 indoor, feral family of four outdoor.
Still a manager at the busiest restaurant in town, hope to be done with that time sucking nonsense in a few years as my husband just graduated and is employed as a Food Scientist aka Food Engineer, and with the growth of my pickle business.

ALSO... Am owner of "The Weed Ladies"- seasonal organic hand landscaping

and... coming soon...tribal Etsy hair extensions.. bone,stone claw, bead, feather, leather hair extensions.

Egads! Glad you steeled yourself, with the help of your family, and extricated yourself from that nightmarish situation. Never allow yourself to be trapped again, laddie. Welcome back! Slainte!

My father's had some health issues, but I am back now. The only man I know who drinks more brown liquor than me. Most importantly, it is not the booze that fucked him, just genetics. Mental degradation can be a bitch, but every time I get him alone at the bar he tells me he feels like a 25 year old drinking on the beach with my mom. Here's to you Dad, and I am looking forward to time with my booze buddy for years to come. Cheers my friends!

Good to have you back, sloweducation. Sorry to hear about your Dad. If it's any help, recent medical articles have indicated that booze slows down various form of, what have been blanket termed, "Senile Dementia".
Cold comfort, I know, at this stage but it may mean that you have more time to spend with your Dad; even if he does think, for real - at some point, that he's 25 and goes off chasing some. I am sorry if this sounds flippant, I don't mean to be. I am just trying to put a positive light on your situation.

Nonetheless, it is good to have you back.

Best wishes to and for you and yours.

The journeys are myriad, the failures heroic, the triumphs de rigueur. Where have I been? Is the answer not always, "That booze ain't gonna drink itself."

Long essays towards cold fusion resulted simply in cold tankards and hot tempers and when the whole thing blew we'd never really been there at all. I pitched my tent and my very existence on the plains of absolute, holistic inebriation. I'd love to tell you what I've done and where I've been but I wasn't there for it and the missives, still slow in coming, read like the deranged ramblings of an only partially lobotomized syphilitic madman... so I assume I scribbled them undrunk. As they say in the Maldives, "What doesn't kill you, makes you drunker," and I have returned with a lighter flask, a heavier liver, and a buoyant heart.

Have at thee, rapscallions, there's booze afoot, and it's not going to drink itself.
