I hav'nt spoke with my dad in over 14 yrs and to be honest had'nt thought about him but 2 to 3 times in that 14 yrs. While I was in Iraq he called my mom (not knowing of course I was in Iraq working on my fourth tour) to get info on his grand kids because him and his wife were fixing there wills. He had mentioned that if I wanted I could give him a call just to say hey. Now my father is not a pleasant man. But in the intrest of doing the right thing and at the behest of a nagging woman (My wife) I called to say hi and tell him about the kids. He of course was only tracking having one grand child, my daughter from my 1st wife. So when I informed him he had 5 grand kids he was shocked and pleasantly surprised. We talked on the phone for what seemed like just a couple minutes. But when I hung up the phone my wife asked me if I had a nice 2 hour talk with my dad and of course poked fun at me calling me a woman and such for being on the phone for so long. It was all pretty funny.While on the phone with him I learned he moved from CA to FL and had been there for the past 7 yrs. Well me being in GA he invited me down for a visit and to do some fishing and to just do some mending. I leave early thur morning. Wish me luck!
