I’m waiting here at the building behind the post office. I left Bird’s Eye because of what I saw. A group of people have been sick. I don’t know if it has to do with the chemicals here but after a while they attacked other workers. I saw one of them bite a chunk out of Alex’s neck. His blood sprayed the walls. I ran as fast as I could from the building. That incident was days ago. When I got here all I could hear were screams over the radios. I don’t know what’s going on. There are people running around outside. People are yelling and screaming. I hear gunshots, it’s a warzone. I will wait a little longer. I hope help arrives…

8 years ago today my wife and I were blessed with a baby boy. Our little family grew that day and it’s been an adventure ever since. Logan is an excellent kid. He’s sensitive of others and has a big heart. On top of those qualities he has a great imagination, and his sense of humor and musical taste are superb! He thinks and speaks like an adult and sometimes he catches me off guard. It’s pretty funny when it happens and I just chuckle and think, “Yep, that’s my boy.”
Now, in order for you to get a sense of what Logan is really like, I can tell you a few stories and tid bits of what makes him who he is. First off, he loves LEGO’s. He will build and build and build until we have to tell him to stop. If he’s not building something he’s reading or playing video games but he’d rather build or read. One time we bought him a small set of LEGO’s that made only one ship but after building it he decided to modify it. When he was finally done, he had built three different spaceships out of the one set. Not one of them looked the same. I was amazed! He has built many things by just looking at a picture and it baffles me at how he can do this.
When it comes to music you’ll see Logan dancing or singing. His favorites are, The Beatles, The Doors, Mumford and Sons, Cake, Rush, The Who, and many others. When we used to play Rock Band on our Xbox 360 he would sing Behind Blue Eyes, Working Man, and others. It’s awesome to see him get into music. Whenever he and I are running errands his choice is always The Beatles. He and I will be belting out the words to Get Back and I am the Walrus and people give us odd looks but we’re having a great time. Logan also loves movies! If he had to pick a favorite of all time it would probably be Star Wars. He does an excellent Yoda and he knows almost every character name and vehicle within the Saga. He also does movie quotes with me which is hilarious. The first time he did it he was either 4 or 5. The quote was from A Christmas Story when Ralphie is trying to think of what he wants to ask Santa Claus for Christmas and is ultimately pushed down the slide after hearing the dreaded, “You’ll shoot your eye out kid.”
The boy cracks me up and I wouldn’t have it any other way. You’re one of a kind Logan! You make me laugh when I’m down and our conversations get wacky but that’s what makes everything you do so much fun. I love you very much and I’m proud of you. I’m adding a video for you to watch because you love the song so much. You’re 8 years old today and growing like a weed. I’m going to have to get a second job just to feed you because you eat as much as I do but it’s all worth it buddy. No matter how fast you grow, you’ll always be my little man Logan. I love you and Happy Birthday son!Post Views: 157

“The entertainment for this evening is not new, you’ve seen this entertainment through and through you have seen your birth, your life, your death….you may recall all the rest. Did you have a good world when you died – enough to base a movie on?”
— Jim Morrison (An American Prayer)
I am 30 years old and I can safely say that I have lived a crazy enough life so far to base a movie on. From what you have read on Jabber Log you might agree that some of the stories would be great to see on film. They will forever be embedded within my brain and just like any movie it requires a soundtrack to keep it moving along. I have dealt with a lot in my life and it seems that there has always been a certain band or song that has accompanied me through that specific chapter in my life. Just a few that I can think of are Korn’s “Blind” during high school and certain rebellious and creative moments. The Doors, Jimi Hendrix, and Janis Joplin during my days trying to get through my parents divorce. It was a pretty “mellow” and “green” time. A euphoric ride through a harsh time but I don’t regret any of it.
A song that really sticks out is “Soul To Squeeze” by The Red Hot Chili Peppers. Every time I hear it I zone out and flash back to one of the times I saw my eldest son Richie. When I first started seeing him again after his mother and I split up he was about a year and a half and it was bittersweet. My family from Florida was visiting and we had gone to a cookout at my Tio Steve’s house. I remember seeing all of my cousins and their kids and I was depressed. I wanted to have my boy with me and spend some time with him but I couldn’t. We were all lining up to eat and I noticed my mom was gone. I was told she had gone to get some more plates and napkins from the store but it seemed like she had been gone longer than just a trip to the store. When she returned I saw she had someone small in her arms. I dropped my plate of food and ran toward my mom. She had Richie with her and I was emotional like you wouldn’t believe. He looked toward me and jumped into my arms. I held him so tight and I held back from crying. We spent a few hours together and it was one of the greatest times in my life. At the end of our visit he reached for me as my mom tried to put him in the car. He cried and cried that he didn’t want to leave. It broke my heart…
I was able to see him a few days later and we spent the day at my Tia Cruz’s house. I didn’t want to let him out of my sight. He gave me hugs and sat on my lap. At the end of the day I sat in back of my mom’s car with Richie as she drove us back to drop him off. She had the radio on and as we drove off “Soul To Squeeze” came on.
“Yes! This is the Red Hot Chili Peppers mijo.”
He got a big smile and threw his hands up and yelled, “Chili Peppers!”
We swayed back and forth as the music played. We pretended to play instruments and I didn’t want the moment to end. When it did we said our goodbyes and till this day I remember and cherish that moment. Whenever I hear that song I think of him and the time we shared during that song. As I type and fight back my tears I have to remember that this is a good memory and I can always play the song to flash back when I feel the need. There are many more songs that fill the soundtrack to my life and this is one of them. I now have a need for some “Soul To Squeeze”, I love you mijo…until that day.Post Views: 142
