Coffee and Them Ukraine Thinking’s…

Since I am not in Russia at this moment it would not be right to call them Russian thinking’s. Now would it? So with that morning cup of coffee I am going to place a post the best that I can. This proxy stuff is bull and it makes it hard to do. But it can and will be done…

So my thinking’s this morning are centered around a Skype call that I had with my son this morning. I told him to call me when he got back in from picking his son up. My grandson! That sounds good doesn’t it? The little tyke is going to preschool now and they grow so fast…

I am proud of my boy and he has done well for himself. He now has his own office and is hiring a staff to help run it. His company has opened a branch near where my son lives. Before this he did most of his work for them on line. By the way my son’s name is Lyle and grandson is Jayden…

We talked for one and a half hours and that time seemed like minutes. I miss the kid and it seems like just yesterday that he was the age of his own kid right now. Time screams by and just does not slow down for anyone or anything…

I saw myself in Lyle when I was younger and the work ethics are there that I tried to instill as part of growing up. I realized this morning that I raised a good kid and I should be very proud of him…

I always say what goes around comes around and as he told me about the grand-kid and how independent he is, I had memories of Lyle stirring at that age. I smiled and realized that, like grandfather, like son, like grand-kid…

It is a wonderful day in Ukraine and I think that I will have a second cup of that delicious coffee and do a little more thinking’s…

Cats In The Cradle:
My child arrived just the other day
He came to the world in the usual way
But there were planes to catch and bills to pay
He learned to walk while I was away
And he was talkin’ ‘fore I knew it, and as he grew
He’d say “I’m gonna be like you dad
You know I’m gonna be like you”

And the cat’s in the cradle and the silver spoon
Little boy blue and the man on the moon
When you comin’ home dad?
I don’t know when, but we’ll get together then son
You know we’ll have a good time then

My son turned ten just the other day
He said, “Thanks for the ball, Dad, come on let’s play
Can you teach me to throw”, I said “Not today
I got a lot to do”, he said, “That’s ok”
And he walked away but his smile never dimmed
And said, “I’m gonna be like him, yeah
You know I’m gonna be like him”

And the cat’s in the cradle and the silver spoon
Little boy blue and the man on the moon
When you comin’ home son?
I don’t know when, but we’ll get together then son
You know we’ll have a good time then

Well, he came home from college just the other day
So much like a man I just had to say
“Son, I’m proud of you, can you sit for a while?”
He shook his head and said with a smile
“What I’d really like, Dad, is to borrow the car keys
See you later, can I have them please?”

And the cat’s in the cradle and the silver spoon
Little boy blue and the man on the moon
When you comin’ home son?
I don’t know when, but we’ll get together then son
You know we’ll have a good time then

I’ve long since retired, my son’s moved away
I called him up just the other day
I said, “I’d like to see you if you don’t mind”
He said, “I’d love to, Dad, if I can find the time
You see my new job’s a hassle and kids have the flu
But it’s sure nice talking to you, Dad
It’s been sure nice talking to you”

And as I hung up the phone it occurred to me
He’d grown up just like me
My boy was just like me

And the cat’s in the cradle and the silver spoon
Little boy blue and the man on the moon
When you comin’ home son?
I don’t know when, but we’ll get together then dad
You know we’ll have a good time then
