Hi RUSH Family, the weather down here in New Orleans has been kinda cool over the last few days; and yesterday's was almost too good for a Halloween weekend. After some tears at mass, letting out at 10:30, I headed downtown to the Superdome and the five block walk was wonderful; drinking a Pepsi and having so much on my mind...so much of Dad. About 3 1/2 hours later when the Saints intercepted securing the win, I lost it a bit. Yes, I was crying more at this game than at the Detroit game ( the first after Dad ); the emotions were going through me. A dear friendly-fan came to me just as Brees was going into victory formation gave me a hug of both happiness & consoling, telling me "...you're grieving, it's ok...". Yes, I was happy we won, but just knowing my reality. Even one of the very many Chicago fans in my row, ( I'm the first seat on the end....9 seats to my left ), understood how I was; for he & I talked a bit during the game. I especially always tell visiting fans, "...I don't drink, not gonna get rowdy, but I do say the safe curse words = shit, dammit, son of a bitch...". All was good, and if the final score could've been 21 to 12 it would've been even better. I guess you can say best of all is that I'm doing my Dad proud by going ahead with my life, and trying to have fun. With that, always & forever with honor, pride & love for Dad. Thanks & I love Y'all !!!
