Minus the Phone

The main distraction in our lives, since its inception, has been the cell phone. As such, the kids came to us and said they wanted a no device day or at minimum a half day to just go out enjoy nature. If not nature, family time uninterrupted by anyone or thing.

Judgment

“What!” yelling Walter. “Where am I going to find that kind of money from?” “According to my documentation you earn over four thousand dollars a month. That is more than enough.

Storm Winds

When I saw the paperwork had a forgery of my signature I was livid. I took out both my ID and drivers license and slapped them onto the table. “That is my signature.” I pointed to the letter. “There is no way I would give that man consent to have access to my children’s money.”...
