Commute, Woodsy Owl

Day of Posts - Birth Family

Ok, so I'm going to do my best to catch everyone up on my life thus far. My first post is a recap on the trip to Salinas to visit my birth family.

Addendum: since the trip, Maggie has told Ruby over the phone that I am her son and that she wants to meet me, but that Tom isn't my father. This is progress, I suppose, from her saying that I was a charlatan who was trying to bilk the family out of money. Still, when I saw her online yesterday, I said "hi Maggie" (it's become my ritual whenever I see her online, to give her the never-taken chance to talk to me) when she actually responded! Her first, and so far, only words to her long-lost second son since last May? "Not now."
