Good News! Brandy received her first DIC VA check. It came in on Friday. Very exciting news because we were told she might not get a dime for up to and possibly longer than one and a half years. She was/is a hardship case having NO money which we told the jerk at the VA. He simply said he could do nothing. He didn’t even tell her about the hardship application that, once we knew about, she filed. We had to figure that one out by ourselves. The government is so helpful. The last time I was in room 222 at regional in St. Pete, they informed a widow of two days that her husband wasn’t dead because the computer was showing him still alive.

I would hope that anyone who reads my poetry understands that I write what comes to my mind and it doesn't mean I'm the reality of the words. I mean that just because I write about alcoholism does not mean I am the character in the poems. I write about those I've known and those I know and a very wide grouping that is of sinners and saints, those who know who and where they are going and those who are completely lost. I am empathic. I write in the first person because I feel the reality of what I am writing about. Like Dean Martin pretending to be drunk while performing I am not what it may seem. Just a thought as I know some out there who read what I write see the words and not the art or the understanding of the problem I am commenting on, nor do they understand that the comment is for the purpose of illustration and not my own personal reality.
