I like to make sure by blog publishing system is still working. Finally
watching The Shawshank Redemption again… again being probably for the second
time after the first time somewhere in my mid-twenties. Somewhere in my
mid-twenties, things went strange. Both my parents checked out. First my dad on
college graduation, same week if I recall correctly. Years later, my mom
started going crazy and disappearing on and off until done. These days I spend
the weekends with my kid, my child from my first marriage. I’m on my second but
that’s another story. For now, it’s me and the kid.
Me and the kid. I have to do well at work to continue earning well. Somehow
through this SEO-route of mine, I ended up in an area of the

wonder how that would be with cats? Persistence. Purrsistence.
