Been trying to keep busy today – working on a laptop for a customer, hanging up laundry when possible, cooking dinner, upgrading the kernels on the two remaining Linux boxes I have online, that sort of thing.

But it’s been at the back of my mind constantly today, and it just now slapped me in the face full force.

Father’s Day.  And yet another one without my son.

Fuck you, Stephanie Dawn Stewart.

I do love you, son.  I realize your mother and grandparents will try mightily to persuade you that I don’t – but I do, very much.  Someday – hopefully – I’ll get to tell you to your face.)

Aw, come on! Is that all you got?! >

Story for you guys from nearly 15 years ago.

I had just proposed to Her Doublewideness not too long previous, and in preparation for the Wedding To End All Weddings™, I had moved into a nice little one-bedroom apartment in the Sleepy Little Town™ of Rockwall, TX.  (Steffi, of course, had a key.  That’s foreshadowing.  Remember it.)

At the time, I was working two jobs – an eight-to-fiver in an office, and a dispatching job on the weekends for the courier company I’d worked days for previously.

As fate would have it, my graveyard relief at the dispatching job this one Sunday night phoned in sick.  And, as fate would also have it, no replacement was available.  Ergo, I would have to work a double shift.  And also ergo (grin), I would be forced to work my eight-to-fiver on zero sleep.

Not a lot of fun.

Anyway, I phoned my then-fiancee, let her know the situation, and kindly asked her if she could come from Sulphur Springs, grab a change of clothes out of the apartment, and come to dispatch to drop them off.  (At the time, I was in a t-shirt & jeans, my apartment was thirty minutes away, and an hour to my eight-to-fiver from there.  No way could I have made it there and back – hence, the call for help to the fiancee. This is also foreshadowing. Remember it.)

Fiancee hemmed & hawed, but eventually agreed that yes, she could do this for the guy she was ultimately going to spend the rest of her life with.  This was 1430 hours.

Fast forward to 1800 hours.  I received a call from Fiancee Unit™, ostensibly apologetic, whereupon she said that she had to go to “church”, and couldn’t come down.

Long story short, I subsequently had to call my eight-to-fiver, report in “sick”, and went home after work to sleep until afternoon.  Didn’t hurt my standing there, but Mondays were a hellaciously busy day at that particular company, and it didn’t help my cause any.

Now, at the time of Doublewide Fiancee’s refusal, I figured “okay, one-off, no biggie, not a hill I want to die on”, and ignored the sickening feeling in the pit of my stomach.  Had I realized at the time that this was a Huge Honkin’ Red Flag O’ Doom™ as to her general dependability, I’d have never married the bitch.  I’d have told her the minute she failed to come through for me, “Okay, sweetie, just drop off the key next time you see me, and have a nice life”.

Should’ve taught me not to ignore the sickening feeling.  But hell – what do I know, hm?

I tell you this story, Denizens, to compare & contrast something that happened to me in San Diego last year at the mum-in-law’s funeral.  Friday was the day of the service, and we started off for the chapel not having had time for a proper breakfast.  So we grabbed a couple hot dogs each on the way.

After the funeral was the reception, whereupon there was fried chicken, pizza, mac ‘n cheese, Chinese, etc, etc, ad infinitum, ad nauseam.  Particular emphasis on the ad nauseam – I posted a pic that I’m sure a couple of you saw.  (Yes, that’s exactly how I was feeling at the time.)

Get back to our lodging for the week, and I’m…well, let’s just say I’ve had better days, mkay?

So here I am in the can.  Doubled over in pain, and without going into TMI mode, Pepto’s not going to be of any help.

I’m still in my Sunday-go-to-meeting clothes, and I’m overheating.  I need to get into a t-shirt & shorts pretty quickly, but I’m not in any condition to venture out from the can at that moment in time.  So I send a text to Mrs. Venomous – “Honey, I need you to get me a t-shirt & my shorts, okay?”

Five minutes go by.  Ten.  Fifteen.

I’m starting to wonder just where the hell she is, when a thought from the Lord (and He’s the only one who could have put this thought there at the time) comes, unbidden, into my head.

“Have faith in your wife”.

Not three seconds later comes a knock on the door – “Honey???”

She slides the clothing under the door, I’m in t-shirt & shorts not too long thereafter, and all turns out well; the day is officially saved.

The point of all this:  I have a pretty damned hellacious wife.  She’s got my back.

JUST LIKE YOU SHOULD HAVE ALL THOSE YEARS AGO, STEFFI, YOU STUPID-ASSED BIMBO!

Mrs. Venomous – I love you.

Front & center, Steffi.

Skip’s present is on its way.  It’s been sent to your attention.  Might be a day or two late, but it’ll get there.

Do all of us a favor and let him actually have  this one, mkay?

_____________________________________________________





Stephanie Dawn Stewart?  Front & center.

Skip’s present is on its way.  It’s a bike.  Not a bad one, either, for his age.

Be a decent human being for once and let him have this present, will you?

_____________________________________________________





Well, Denizens, she’s done it again.  Or rather, she and her fat-assed pussy of an excuse-for-a-father have done it again.

Stephanie Dawn Stewart (she long ago forfeited any right she ever had to wear the Crager name) refused to allow my son to have the Christmas present I got for him.  Or more to the point, they were too cowardly to even answer the door so that FedEx© could give it to them.

Even when I followed her suggestion and put it in the form of a gift card, well, they’re above  all that.  Can’t have his father  giving him a Chirstmas present, y’know.

And it’s not as if you can’t say you weren’t home.  FedEx, after, all, tried three times  and left three door cards  to let you know there was something for Skip.

But none of that matters to you, does it?  Long as you can stick it to me and deny me any  contact with my son – well, that just makes you cream your granny panties, doesn’t it?

So, fine, Steffi.  Have it your way.

You’ve whined in the past about how I keep saying “some aweful things” (no kidding, Denizens, that’s how an elementary school teacher  spells it) about you in the past, even though I’ve pretty much documented things.

But you can’t keep him under your cowardly thumb forever.  At some point, I’m going to get to tell Skip my  side of the story.

And when I do, the things I’ve  said about you will pale in comparison.

Bank on it, you miserable little shrew.

Stephanie Dawn Stewart – front & center.

I have ordered Skip’s Christmas present for this year.  It’s something I think he’ll like, and I can promise you it’s something you’d never think to get him.

Do us all a favor this year, and let him have this one, okay?

ThatIsAll™.

Denizens, it’s now been 10 long years since I made what is probably the Mistake Of My Life™ and married that doublewide fatassed trollop in East Texas.

But this post isn’t for you guys, it’s for her.  Therefore, feel free to bypass this and go straight to the PFW post below.

Aw, come on! Is that all you got?! >

_____________________________________________________





Speaking of Her Doublewideness™, today happens to be her birthday.

Two words come to mind:  Old maid.

Eh.  Whatever.

(For reasons which are mine & mine alone, I’m removing this post.

No, I haven’t been threatened, either physically (ha!) or legally.  I have my reasons for taking this post down, they’re good ones – damned  good ones, in fact – and I’m keeping them to myself for now.

ThatIsAll™.)

_____________________________________________________





Stephanie Dawn Stewart Crager, front & center.

I’ve just finished sending Skip’s present to him, care of you and that fat-assed son-of-a-bitch you call a father.

Try not to be complete asses this time and let my son have his present, okay?

Thatisall™.

_____________________________________________________





Well, it looks like Steffi the Doublewide Fat-Assed Bitch Supreme™ has once again prevented my son from receiving Christmas presents sent to him by yours truly.

(And this time I know for a fact it was you personally, Steffi, you miserable little shrew.  Here’s a hint:  try lying about your identity BEFORE you admit to being you next time, hm?)

And Steffi, just so you know what it is you kept our  son from having this year, have a gander:

A Lightning McQueen (from the Disney movie Cars) interactive car.  Skip probably would’ve had fun with the thing all year – and it cost you nothing.

Oh, and I also sent along one of those goofy-assed little Teddy Snowflake™ bears you love so much, just so you wouldn’t have to buy him one.  And as unbelieveable as it might sound, Steffi, you dumbass – I actually do that to honor you  in a small (very small) way.  Hell – do you think I want  him to be caught dead with a stupid-assed bear that would be more at home swishing about in Oak Lawn?

So congratulations on playing the role of Grinch™ yet again, bitch.  That’s four Christmases now you’ve denied him – and me.

I just hope you have a good explanation ready for God when you die.  I guran-damn-tee you – you’re gonna need it.

Stupid trollop.

I hate today.  For obvious reasons.

Because of a self-absorbed bimbo like Stephanie Dawn Stewart Crager, this is one of a myriad of Father’s Days I’ll not get to spend with my son.

It’s now been three years since I last saw my boy, and seeing as Her Doublewideness is likely to get her way, it’s liable to be quite a few more.

My one hope is in the fact that she can’t keep him away from me forever, and neither can that jackassed family of hers.  If Skip is anything like his old man was, he’s got a curiosity streak a mile wide and a world’d diameter long.  At some point, he’s going  to seek me out.  Bank on that.  All I have to do is remain alive long enough.

So I will continue to sit and wait her out.  I can be very  patient when I need to be.

Anyway, guys, Happy Father’s Day.  Hope yours went better than mine did.
