PART II! THINGS GOT NASTY! - Author With Dementia...Or Victim of Daughter's Deceit?

PART II! THINGS GOT NASTY! - Author With Dementia...Or Victim of Daughter's Deceit?

...she came out swingin'! She sent me a scathing email, laden with typos (which was odd because she claims to be a "mental health professional" with a PhD), saying that my note to her father forced her to discuss this with her father before she was ready to do so (remember that part for later). She made allegations about her dad being verbally abusive toward his wife. She made some other pretty disturbing accusations about him as well.

Go Karts...That Go 50 MPH?!?! What???

Go Karts...That Go 50 MPH?!?! What???

These go-karts ("electric Italian pro-karts") were going SO FAST! I got nervous because Mason is only 10 years old and he'd never ridden one before. I voiced my hesitation and Mason said, "Don't worry, Mom. The kids only get to go 25 mph."

25 MILES PER HOUR?! ACK!!!

I looked around and none of the other parents appeared anxious so I pushed my fears aside, and sat down to watch. A couple of races later, they called Mason's name for the kids' race. He listened to the instructions, put on a cloth head covering (I thought, 'Oh good, he wouldn't get lice!') and a huge helmet, and got into his "pro-kart." The employees helped strap the kids in the cars. Of course, I watched to make sure they strapped Mason in really tight!

I Want to Write My Life Story...But Where Do I Start?!

I Want to Write My Life Story...But Where Do I Start?!

My father and uncle were involved in the 6 day war, and my uncle (a member of the PFLP) was sentenced to 125 years in prison. Long story there. We moved to the USA in 1978 and my father ran the home with an iron fist, became a gang member, and did all that comes along with that life style. He also went to prison for many years. I mean, there is so much to say. Please can you guide me?
