dear Just Curious 1,
let me tell you how all this came about. I grew up on the same street as my son's mother; Her name is Cherilyn. As my 2nd oldest brother and myself used to sit on the sidewalk in front of our house on 10615 Atwell Dr, across the street was Cynthia Ann Parker Elementary School...my 2 older Brothers & sister attended. I seen a girl with red hair & glasses riding down the street. I told Mark (my 2nd oldest brother), I'm going to step out in the street and stop her to ask her name...
As I grabbed the handlebars it shocked her...but I said my name is Guy what's yours...she said if you let me pass I'll tell you...I said OK...She smiled; said Cherilyn...I had a thought that second...I'm going to fall in Love with her...and sure enough it happened later; this was 1970... She was younger than me...I found out 4 yrs...She was born July 7 1963...its amazing how I can remember, but she is my baby mother. As the years passed, it was the day I was to graduate from Westbury SR High I was stopped going to school. She asked me "Who I was taking to the Prom". I

replied it can't be you which got a mad look. That year Winter came; it snowed and I met Cherilyn * her friend, it was like 5 or 6 am.
Long Story, my sister Clara and I switched bedrooms. I'll tell it later...I was woken up by noises out in our front lawn. I couldn't see but "feet" and girlish voices...it was snowing so I went to wake up my 2nd oldest brother Mark. Said let's put Poncho in the Utility Room and surprise them...So I caught the friend, Mark got Cherilyn. We all 4 looked back. I said "Really" looking at Cherilyn. As we stood Cherilyn walked up to me, raised up on her tiptoes, kissed me, said I'll come later to help clean up...But she never did...the year went then summer came...there was a public pool behind Parker everyone would go to...I'd ride my skateboard in my Levi Jeans & T-shirt. Well as I was leaning my eye caught a sexy redhead sitting on a Burgundy Camaro...Of course right then my brain recognizes it was Cherilyn...She jumped off and came up to me. Again tiptoed & kissed me...smiling says come on I'll give you a ride...
So on the way to my house, she says I spoke to your mom, asked her

After my mom & her were talking, my mom says today is Guy's 21st Birthday...
But before I continue...tell me all about who is (Just Curious 1)
I don't have my son (Eric) address. Yes Eric has a Son named Conner. I seen a photo of him!
Not to bring up the past but I once had a person who stalked me? is this the same person who is Just Curious 1. You never revealed who you are yet? It's water under the bridge...you can tell me, and I'll tell you the rest of this story...If you jpay.com you can stay anonymous?
Eric was 2 years old the last time I held him. A child's memory doesn't copy til age 5 or older...I do love Eric with all my heart...soul for life...I'd wish he write me & share his life & all with me as I would with him...Soon Tdcj is going to give us tablets? you want to register your phone 866-806-7804...I'd love to speak to you Eric...God Bless Stay Strong...
All my Blessings, Guy

Your story has a tender nature to it. I thoroughly enjoyed transcribing your work.

Hello Guy!

Yes, I've been in love and it was lost as well. It hurt me dearly but as you said, eventually you learn to love again. I'm still not with someone, but I learned to open my heart again.

I have a son; he's young and still growing. He's definitely made me a far better person than I'd been before him.

I do think a large majority of us deserve a second chance. Though I often lost hope in humanity. I often don't think that many will put in the work it takes to not take it for granted. A second chance did me well, but I also worked my a** off for it.

I'm not quite sure about other blogs that exist such as this one, but I will look around and get back to you on that.

I transcribe on this site as part of the club I'm in at University. I'm a 4th year and finishing up my education. Transcribing on this site has given me many points of inspiration and different perspectives that I like to understand.

I hope to take the words and perspectives of people like you and make others aware of them. Be a vessel in a way for the words you all speak.

I'm curious, were you ever into certain movies and films? If there are a few that you like a lot, I'd like to watch them and understand you better.

I hope the 2023 new year treats you well. Until next time,

-Brandilarke
