As to wonderful, educated, capable grandchildren--I am fortunate to have 5, with a Wall street investor, a PA cardiologist, business IBM ex employee now on her own, electrical engineer into robotics and a corporate employee with professional photography for fun(and $$$).
Also--3 glorious wonderful GREAT grandchildren, ages 13, 11 and 8. My wife and I have been fortunate to have enjoyed their company(12 family members plus us)on a 2019 trip to Florence, Italy(stayed in a 1000 year old castle) and Venice(and Murano and Burano).
And just returned from our 14 family member trip to IRELAND. ALL WHITE(except a husband to a grandaughter who is Japanese and Hawaiian), ALL AMERICAN, ALL self reliant and all considerate and appreciative of all my wife and I do assure they can all enjoy our FAMILY adventures to Europe.
Why do some have a need to put RACE into everything?
My family of children, grandchildren and great grandchildren are all capable and smart. Daughter is a nurse, and son a VP of a corporation.
WHO cares--but if bragging is required---read all the above!!

A few simple statements.
I enjoy conversing with each and every one of you gentlemen.
I respect each of you and your opinions.
I believe that we are a group of men with far above average intelligence, integrity, honesty and honor.
The debate that evolves among honorable, intelligent gentlemen with differing opinion, leads to broader minds and shared perspectives.
As I have stated many times, all DD brothers are welcome at my home. We will dine on Mutt and his Cajun wife's combination of unusual but excellent cooking, slam cold beers, drink a variety of fine red wines, enjoy after dinner cocktails (shots of Kentucky bourbon) and retire into the private guest quarters of Mutt's abroad.
Mutt and his beautiful gracious spouse, enjoy entertaining. It provides us with an opportunity to mix black cajon with hollar cooking, music and ideas.

Riley we got to get together. I got a feeling we would have a hell of a time. What do you call your home town?
I get back to Kentucky 3 or 4 times a year. I love bars, fishing (even creeks wading and catching bluegill, red eyes, shell crackers, small mouth and frog gigging), cooking especially out doors doing hog, beef, lamb, goat, fish, frog legs, foul of all varieties and wild game. Good grub, good music, good company and the outdoor beauty of Kentucky make old Mutt a happy old ass mangy dog.
Of course you are welcome to visit me in Houston. You have a private room, private bath, private entrance and hell even one of my vehicles to use as you wish any time you are down this way. I will take a couple days off work and we can do it right. Deep sea fishing, f%@!ing A good blues bars, or just hanging out in the Mutt cave cooking, drinking and listening to Mutt's stereo (the precession he is most proud of, KEF System customed designed for the Mutt Cave, it is a great vacation experience in its self, we can rattle the windows down the street with David Allen Coe , ACDC and Tyler Childers, my neighbors are listening to great music whether they like it or not).

Oh hell yes we would. Jail ain't that bad. Don't get me wrong it ain't my favorite place, but by and large, it ain't that bad. Id rather been in jail than an old folks home anytime. In fact, it might be the best retirement plan old man can get. Plenty food, hot coffee, canteen privs, computer, cable tv, decent bed, heat , AC, good shelter, free meds, free health care, free dental, free glasses once a year, a good library, good company (most old boys in jail are decent fellers, they just did not have the money to buy their way out), a hair cut any time you want one, not a bad way to spend your old age. We are too old and ugly to worry about getting raped, too mean to get punked, hell if some dumb shit tries to bully you, steal a bottle of bacon grease from the kitchen, wait till dumbshit goes to sleep, soak the bastard down with bacon grease and throw a match on him. Watch the f%@!er burn.
Problem solved and the word is spread, dont f%@! with Mutt and Riley, they are psycho old ass bastards.
Hell any aerosol can, I prefer Pam, is a f%@!ing flame thrower. A bottle of ammonia, a few ounces of bleach or a little vinegar and we got a f%@!ing chemical weapon. 4 bottles of ammonia and a hot plate, we got nitroglycerin. We would own the SOB in a week.
It aint cool to f%@! with old hillbilly f%@!ers, they will murder or maim your ass.
