Boys weekend while @trailerparkromance is on a road trip! First night is pizza dinner! #burp #fart

Last night my last remaining grandparent passed away. My Grandpa(my dad’s dad) had been living alone for the last 10 years after the death of his wife that he had been married to for 55 years, passed away after having a very rough year of health. It had really gone downhill over the last week. My dad told me tonight that yesterday he had asked my dad for “help” because he couldn’t go on anymore, his fight was gone and he was ready to go.
Living far away from my family is the one thing I hate about living in CA. I want to be there with the rest of my family to celebrate the great life he had lived but it just can’t happen on such short notice. I am glad that I got to go see my Grandpa last November. I hung out with him for hours and when I left he started crying. It broke my heart at the time because I knew, and I’m sure he did too that, it would be the last time we saw each other. I don’t make it back to PA often enough.
For now I will sit tonight and remember all the great times we had together.

The part of me that hates punk rock elitism and ‘I was into it before you were’ bullshit hates this…but the part of me that gets really mad when young punx sneer at me cos I don’t always look like their idea of a punk anymore wants one of these.

I couldn’t agree more

You better believe that when I see street kids playing music on the side of the road I pull back around and help them out the best I can.

When I was 16 I worked at my High School during the summer. One day I dropped a teachers desk on my big toe. It destroyed the toenail and it never grew right again. Last summer I smashed the toe again and the nail fell off. I thought maybe the nail would grow back right this time. It grew back just as fucked up as before.
So after having a messed up toenail for 20 years it’s time to have some fun with it. So I give you my new Frankenstein Toe, better known as Franken-Toe! (at Folsom City Ink)

Havin fun! (at Folsom City Ink)

My youngest just about started the vacuum while Tawny is still sleeping.
Do you want to die today son???

I was falling asleep on the living room floor while watching The Killing on Netflix. So I turn off the tv, take the dog out, and go lay in bed.

Now I’m wide awake.
