Then I made a decision to have a few beers with some friends and co-workers after work. That night changed my life. While making the hour drive home from Orlando, I lost control of my truck. I could blame it on the weather, but I won't. I should not have been driving.
I totaled my truck and spent the night in jail. My kids are aware of what happened. I have spent or am going to spend a small fortune. What a wake-up call this has been!
I can promise you this. That was the last time, and it will not happened again. My family need to see me home alive. I try to do right by my children and had given them good advice. I say,
Call me before you drive. It is better to call me than to end up in jail.They noticed that I didn't heed my own advice. For this I am forever changed in their eyes because they know that Daddy went to jail for driving drunk.
I totaled the workshop truck we were building. Two years of work down the drain.
