Ever been overwhelmed when trying to fall asleep? When this happened to Paul, he felt the old neighborhood was calling out to him. It wanted to be remembered. This type of personification seems odd, but truly happened. From some wonderful positive neighbors, to one possibly from Area 51, this episode centers around those neighbors with whom Paul and his family were blessed AAAAAAND cursed. The gruff ex-marine who was tattooed head to toe and worked on cars, the retired one who called the police on Paul six times. The one that told Paul’s mom he was ‘too oafish’ to walk in her yard. Add Tilley, the Bangs, the Johnsons and Walt and you have Paul’s environment growing up. Don’t miss the go cart story . Paul gets INVITED BACK HOME to have a talk with his awkward, eccentric and quirky past.
We retell ife's stories that helped us become who we are now. The stories can be quite funny, ironic, as well as painful. The human spirit fights to succeed, while at the same time, we try our best to keep adding day to day value to our lives. When we take that story-step backward, we often rediscover the humor, love and sometimes we even find needed closure we once overlooked. There is more to life than the day to day. Life passes by quickly & sometimes it’s hard to let the past go. So, with humor and optimism we present this podcast.
