I have not been diagnosed with COPD yet, but know I am
in the early stages. When I sing, I don't have the wind I used to, and I
do have trouble getting winded easily. I think that if I could get into
the pool, and the hot tub, that would help me. I did quit for about 10
days last year when I nearly got married. I just patched up, flew out
to Oregon and spent 9 days out there and never craved a smoke once. I
was on the patch. I never cared much for alcohol, so that was a
blessing, and the pain meds are getting old. I have cut back a lot, and
only try to use them to take the edge off. I had my knee replaced and
it is not right, so if I can get that fixed, and my wrist, I think I
could get down to a minimum or be completely off of them. I would love
that. I just get hurting so bad, I can't
function, and the pain meds just do take the edge off. I know I never
will be pain free, but will have to live with some degree. I am hoping
that I can get off the smokes soon, so take it one day at a time, with
the goal of being smoke free, and pain med
free in the future.
We are so close to the ocean that it really doesn't
get that hot, but then again, we do stay in a lot. The humidity is the
killer. That is why I was wanting to get back
out to the west coast.
We will stay cool, and keep on making music. You do the
same, and keep in touch....Dale

I wish I could
tell you something that would help you quit smoking, but I had to get
so sick that I couldn't smoke. That's pretty much how I stopped
drinking, too. I told Scott that I gave up the pain meds, too, because
they really didn't help with the pain, and I was sitting around in a
fog all the time. Just wanting to quit wasn't enough for me. I had to
have drastic consequences.
I do know that
if you can get into a warm pool, it relieves arthritis pain,
temporarily. I don't understand how that works. Arthritis seems to like
dry heat more??????

Things are plugging away here. I am going to try to get around
and do more things. I think if I can find a way to get into a swimming
pool, it would help me with my arthritis pain. I really need to quit
smoking, and have tried to get Scott to join me, but so far nothing. I
know I need to just do it, but it is hard when someone around you

that on the longest day of the summer solstice, the midday sun shone to
the bottom of a well in the town of Syene
(Aswan). At the same time, he observed the sun was not directly
overhead at Alexandria; instead, it cast a shadow with the vertical
equal to 1/50th of a circle (7° 12'). To these observations,
Eratosthenes applied certain "known" facts (1) that on the day
of the summer solstice, the midday sun was directly over the Tropic of
Cancer; (2) Syene was on this tropic; (3)
Alexandria and Syene lay on a direct
north-south line; (4) The sun was a relatively long way away
(Astronomical unit). Legend has it that he had someone walk from
Alexandria to Syene to measure the distance:
that came out to be equal to 5000 stadia or (at the usual Hellenic 185
meters per stadion) about 925 kilometres.<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_geodesy#Hellenic_world>

facts, Eratosthenes concluded that, since the angular deviation of the
sun from the vertical direction at Alexandria was also the angle of the
subtended arc (see illustration), the linear distance between Alexandria
and Syene was 1/50 of the circumference of
the Earth which thus must be 50×5000 = 250,000 stadia or probably
25,000 geographical miles. The circumference of the Earth is 24,902
miles (40,075.16 km). Over the poles it is more precisely 40,008 km or
24,860 statute miles. The actual unit of measure used by Eratosthenes
was the stadion. No one knows for sure what
his stadion equals in modern units, but some
say that it was the Hellenic 185-meter stadion.<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Eratosthenes%27_method_for_determining_the_size_of_the_Earth.svg>

sympathize. I gave up all of my friends simply because if you are not
drinking with them, then there isn't much that you have in common.
Scott has to know that we won't get along worth a crap if he continues
to drink when he moves out here. I have a feeling part of this is him
having a last fling. I remember doing that several times myself. I hope
he doesn't make you too miserable. I hope the kids don't suffer too
much from this.
Hang in there!
On June 28, 2013 at 2:44 PM Dale Peterson <email@example.com>
Pete, thanks for the input. I figured that
may be the way to go, to let him find out for himself. I had to do the same.
I did the same thing too, with overmedicating. That is why I am really
strict with my meds now. I am trying to be patient with him, but he has been getting
really obnoxious and argumentative when he starts catching a buzz. He
gets on subjects and just keeps on interrogating me, and when I can't
answer, he tells me I am retarded and a moron because I can't answer
his questions. He was grilling me about my police record, and I told
him I didn't have much of one, and he started accusing me of lying, and
avoiding his questions so I gave him my information, and he had his
police friend run it, and they came up clean, with nothing on me.
That is just an example and then when he tells me what he found out, or
didn't find, he is not apologetic and then it goes to something else.
It really is hard, because I feel like I can't discuss things with him
openly once he starts drinking, and that is when he wants to start
talking. I will keep an eye on him and I do check him when he drinks
too much and lays on the couch to sleep. I
also watch to make sure he isn't taking pills when he is in that
condition. I love him and don't want to see anything happen and know
you love him too, so thanks for your input. I feel like he would feel
like we were ganging up on him so I am going to keep this between you
and me. You can tell him what you want, as you are his dad, and have
been thru it, and I only want what is best and feel like you will use
your judgement to help him, and if that includes telling him that you
talk to me about it, that is cool.
Aaron may move back here to go to school, and I may come
back out there, but that will be in the fall. That kind of was the
understanding with Scott when I came here. I told him it would not be
long term. I know he likes having me here and I like to be with him
when he is not boozing. My friend has offered me a place to live out
there, but we are still up in the air about when we would do that. I
know it would really help my arthritis and even Scott has expressed the
desire to move back there. I haven't brought this up to him yet, but
will. We had a little scene here last night, but I don't think he
remembers it and I let all that shit go, and don't bring it up to him.
The one night he was falling down and drunk, he brought it up, and I
made some comments, but didn't "lay into him" if you know
what I mean. I just agreed with him that he was really fucked up. He
was saying his knee gave out on him when he fell the first time, but
when he fell out of his chair, he didn't say much. I do not consume any
alcohol at all, and haven't for over 9 years, and feel like I am trying
to show him that I can have a good time without booze. I really don't
know that much about alcohol, so I have to depend on your judgement on
that. I am really glad you quit, and know you will keep clear of that
crap. I had to learn that about the pills and it is not easy. We don't
realize how we are affecting others and looking back I can see it and
feel bad, but feel like I can only go forward and try to show that I don't
do that anymore. Actions speak louder than words.
I will keep you posted and let you know what is going on
with Aaron and all of that. I don't know if Scott told you, but he is
keeping the boys here and is not going to let Josh go back to Raelene
when school starts again. She has really let him down and so he is
making her go to court to even visit them outside of the house. If
Aaron moves back, it will be pretty crowded here, so I think that my
move from here to Ca. will help that situation. I do want to stay as
long as possible and hope that helps. He really doesn't have a car that
is real dependable and I do, and he really isn't ready to drive, so I
will stay until that changes. I am look. I am kind of looking at maybe
being there in October, depending on a lot of things, like Aaron and
all of that. I can move out there just about anytime,
but told my friend that I am going to stay here to help Scott as long
as necessary and he is cool with that.
I am hoping to get the boys out fishing when Scott is more
healed. He is healed up pretty good now, but still is having trouble
walking, so it may be a while. Maybe I can get the kids to go fishing
with me, and give Scott a little break from them. They are good boys,
but Matt can be a handful. He talks non-stop, and I get along well with
him and tease him and I have a good relationship with both boys so I

Subject: Re: Please use this email acct.
I am worried
about Scott as well. I also understand exactly how he feels. He thinks
that he is only hurting himself, and doesn't realize that he hurts the
people that love him just as much. I was the same way myself, and I wasn't willing to listen to any advice
from anyone. If you value your relationship with Scott, I think the
best thing is for him to learn the hard way. It's tough to be around
someone who drinks, especially if you don't, so I urge you to use
patience. There are no easy answers, and I never realized how much
damage my life style would bring to others. Just please keep an eye on
him, and keep me posted. He tells me he doesn't drink much, but I can
tell by the way he talks it's not true. I really don't think that he
believes he has me fooled. As far as confidentiality, that is up to
you. He knows what I think, and how I feel. I don't try to hide
anything from him.

Things have been kind of crazy. I had to take Scott up
to Baltimore for a doctor appointment, and I have been trying to get a lot
of my stuff done. Matthew spends a lot of time on here, so I sometimes
don't get a chance to email much.
I want to ask you something, but hope you understand why. Scott
has been hitting the beer pretty hard, and when we go out, he does
shots of whiskey. I am really concerned about him for three reasons.
One, I don't want him to come home wasted, pop one of his pills, which
are really strong, and die. Two, if he keeps drinking with his
diabetes, he is going to start losing limbs. Three is I love him, and
hate to see him in that condition. I think he really has a problem, but
I don't approach him about it. I don't want to alienate him, and he
does get pissed when I talk anything about it, and denys
his intake. He told me he was only drinking a couple beers a day, and he has been going through a twelve pack a
day, missing only one day, and then shot of booze when we go out, which
he likes to go out to the marina. Do you have any advice for me? I know I am not
perfect and I am really sticking to my prescriptions as I am supposed
to, and do not get fucked up. I wouldn't do that around his kids, as a
guest here, but I don't know how to handle it. The only thing I
can think of is to just shut up, and let him find out the hard way.
Please don't tell him about me writing you this. I don't want any of
our relationships to be in jeopardy. I am approaching you as a brother, that is concerned for my nephew, and your
son. Let me know. He does not read my emails so what you tell me will
remain totally confidential.
Other than that, Raelene fucked up Josh's graduation, and tried
to fuck up Matthew's big day. I think that Scott may have told you
about that, and I stay out of that. That is between them. I am just
worried about his drinking. I will see what you think........Dale

that agreed to pay the insurance told me " we
usually don't pay for things that get shook in transit". The whole
front of the computer tower was smashed and the side of the thing was
crushed and couldn't even be taped back on.

concerned about his alcohol intake too, not that it is really a lot,
but that is also really bad for diabetes. I try not to bring it up, and
only discuss it if he does. I would really like to see him get better,
and take better care of himself, but you and I know how that
Matthew has been on the computer most of the time, so I haven't

once I get settled in, it will be okay. I hope all is well out there

It isn't a big
deal. It has to go a thousand miles extra to get that little forwarding
sticker. The Postal service wonders why they are losing money.

throw my shit over the fence, no problem, and I just love it. The
postman's excuse to not deliver was because my gate was closed. Isn't
everybody's gate closed? Anybody with a gate can't receive mail? What

I will take it that the best way to send anything to you
is to use your P.O. box. If that is correct, I will do that. I wish I
would have known sooner, but I guess you did receive all that I did
send, so will make a note and not use the street address

I know this is
confusing. You cannot mail to my house address. Post office stuff goes
to Post Office box.
UPS and Fed Ex
(only) can be addressed to the house.
fucked up my mail to no end. All because of one asshole!

Good job. I am surprised it came out that good. Looks
like it was a lot of work, but worth it. I didn't go thru it all, but
it does look good. Glad you got that okay. If I ship anything more, I
will Fed Ex or UPS it. I can just send regular
mail to the house. Good to know. I will check it out when I have more

It depends on

Pete, I wasn't aware that there would be an extra charge.
Sorry about that. Would you rather I ship Fed Ex and UPS? I really
think they handle packages better anyway. It is up to you. I will file
the PO box though and you can let me know your preference.....

I got the
yearbook, and I have already started to scan it. With a little luck,
it'll be on line by tomorrow.
It came with
postage due 'cause you shipped to the house.
When you mail stuff (U.S.P.S.) at the post office, ship to

I will try to get a look at some of the pictures again. Matthew has
taken over my computer, but will be in school for another week, so will
try to get thru more. That one site has not opened up yet, so I don't
have all of the names for that one picture I thought was Rittenhouse,
but some people identified almost all of the people in the pic, so will
get it when that site is open again.

temperatures aren't unusual, just the time of year. We average thirty
to thirty five days a year above 100.
As far as
climate change, we see it less here than they would in Oklahoma, or
even on the east coast and their hurricanes.
Scott says the
fishing is really good there. Good luck!

Pete, I don't remember it being that warm there, except
for a few days. Is it warmer there than it was, say 20 years ago? I
remember that my van, that we replaced the engine in, suffered a
cracked block from the water freezing in the engine. I didn't have any
anti-freeze in it, as the radiator leaked, but I just made sure it had
water. I thought that was odd for it to freeze hard enough to crack the
It looks like the climates are changing all over the world. Stay
comfy, and I hope you have a great summer. It
has really been mild here since I got here. I am looking forward to
when we can get some fishing in. Take care.........Dale

good here. We had 105 yesterday, and as I write it is
107 outside now. I have A/C this year so it is 75 in the house.

We got an even heavier rain today. I had to have Aaron
take me to the ER and get a cathator because
my prostate is swollen and I couldn't pee. I got squared away, and
Aaron is going back tomorrow. Scott is doing pretty good, but is really
sore. Other than that, all is well, and we are just hanging in there.
Hope all is good there.......

Pete, I arrived here in Virginia on tuesday
evening. Scott got released from the hospital on tuesday
at around noon. Aaron will be here til the
week end, then I will be helping Scott with Matthew and I think Josh
may come back too. I am enjoying cooking for them and we are all eating
good. I went to the store the first day and went nuts, so we all will
be sitting around rubbing our bellies for a while. Scott is doing good, but I am glad I can be here to get him to
appointments he needs to be at, and help with the boys. I will hope to
get back to looking at pictures. We had a bit of trouble getting the
computer going, but Aaron figured it out. I will be in touch. Hope all
is well there.........Dale
Find just before WTF
. Do you have any advice for me? I know I am not perfect and I am
really sticking to my prescriptions as I am supposed to, and do not get
fucked up. I wouldn't do that around his kids, as a guest here, but I
don't know how to handle it. The only thing I can think of is to just
shut up, and let him find out the hard way. Please don't tell him about
me writing you this. I don't want any of our relationships to be in
jeopardy. I am approaching you as a brother, that
is concerned for my nephew, and your son. Let me know. He does not read
my emails so what you tell me will remain totally confidential.
