I'm So Lonesome I Could...

They left today. I love them. My wife, Kim, and my half red/half black belt son, Ben. Gone on that big shiny aluminum bird to South Korea. I know it's only gonna be 2 weeks but it sucks. Her Dad is too frail for travel. She may never see him again. My son will get to see the town he was born in and meet his foster-mother. Ben will hone his fighting skills using Tae Soo Do there. He wants to spar. He's good at his craft...so was Elvis. So what better way to express my love for them... using a fake Elvis singing and doing martial arts...than with this video? Prayers for their safe travels and my love follows them wherever they go. The song is in my heart. Let me feel a little sorry for myself today, please. Nothing is fake in my love for them. Nothing is sorry for loving them. Nothing. JG

God Bless their travel Gene.

And may the two weeks go by as quick for you as the last 9 years did for me ;-)

Ps - Sorry, but I prefer the Hank Williams version.

Buffalodick, Maeve, & Kid-

Thanks for the good vibes! Got a call this AM (Wed) and they are in Seoul headed home to Osan with one of our nephews who met them at the airport. Now all I have to worry about is KIM Jong IL lighting up South Korea with a nuke or two and running our Mom & Pop gang-banger clothing store back here in Koweefornia...my life is hell'a kewl!
