You are right, Windfall. A strike shouldn't be the cause of losing your home. My parents somehow how made it work, but those kind of hard times could certainly push you over the edge if you weren't prepaired for them.

Sounds like I would enjoy an afternoon listening to your stories, as I do listening to my grandfather in his old decaying rocker, tell his lifes story. At 95 he tends to be a ltitle repetitive, but he has an amazing memory and an attention to detail unlike many I know. The good thing about the repetition though, is that it helps those memories of his stories stick in my memory.

I hope to write a story about him one day. Please keep my email, as I would like to be among the first to read your memoir. I had it pretty easy growing up, my mother and father working endless hours to give my sister and I a really good childhood, but as strange as it may sound, I fing myself trying hard to step back a bit to my grandfather's, or even just my parents generation at least, to try and instill in them, as much of the old morals and respect that once existed in the world.
