But, first you need to know some history.
I had no idea I would talk about this when I started the blog, but I never knew I would have a dog either...crazy...this is all so crazy.
Feel free to pour yourself another cup of coffee or shake up a cocktail.
My father left my mother and me when I was a kid. He didn't stick around to see me grow up. Whenever the subject of dear old dad was brought up, my mother had an amazing way of changing the subject. I know she was just trying to protect me while she was alive but it's always been a bit of a mystery to me.
With the close of this auction, I just found out that my uncle (from my father's side- who I've never met) lives in the same town as the seller from eBay...Miss English Rose.
Ralph, of course, went nuts.
"You have to see him. You spent so much time finding out where he lives but you've never taken the first step to meet him. He could answer a lot of your questions you have about your father."
Of course, I'm waffling. I don't know if it's the right time. Maybe this uncle is as big on "family" as my dad was.
The only reason I would want to see him is that it was important to my mom that I have at least one living relative in my life (you know...for that possible kidney transplant. Sorry; laughter is always my back up if it gets too deep)
Anyways- the trip will take place this weekend- so, I can figure it all out in the next couple of days. Geez, my palms are sweaty.
