Aunt Francie (aka The Great Pumpkin)

This is another one of the old traumas - dear old Aunt Francie has been dead for 14 years now. (Thank Heavens). I write about her now, because this is, after all a blog of my life experiences, mainly those of the traumatizing variety.

It is possible that I am just an … Continue reading A Pedophile’s Dream

I suppose I should start here, as she is the greatest lament of them all. Wow, imagine that, huh? How Freudian. What are the odds? At this point I suppose it would be appropriate to say that she was the greatest lament of them all. She finally got around to killing herself "the right way" in … Continue reading Mother
