We are his world!

We make him happy!

so proud of niece graduating from High School…

His Dad has become his best friendOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

They kid a lot… telling corny jokes k13041725… play scratch tickets together… go to the River Boat Casino every now and then…

If his Dad needs a hand around the house … he is right therewith lots of advice!

but, he does know how to do so many things… has that knack of fixing thingsredoing things…

He buys and sells on Ebay3625v1-max-150x150 for extra money(he’s on disability) and does well at it…

He loves to collect items and knows what it’s worth by his investigating on the computer…

Yes, he is smart!… he is loving… he is a good son!…OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Doug on right…

with Uncle visiting from Georgia… Rebellious years for sure!

I’m his partner in shopping at thrift stores… peddler’s malls…yard sales…

We have a common bond in loving older things… music… collectibles… movies…

He seems to have lots of confidence in me… although I’ve had to be the “mean” one at times… in discipline… pushing him forward… making him do for himself!

The neighbor lady calls him the “supervisor”… because he loves telling others how to do things… and has great confidence in his opinions…

Most people who know him… love him…

with cousin at her son’s wedding…

He has a natural ease in talking to all kinds of people…

especially people he feels has had a tough life

I imagine he can relate!

You would never guess… he suffers from bi-polar disorderP_culture_svg

He shys away from certain people at times due to their scrutinizing him …

He doesn’t go to some placestoo crowded… suffocates him and gives him anxiety…

Has a little paranoia… in what others think of him… what others may do… safety issues and doing right all of the time…

He would fight for those he loves with all of his might!

Family is what’s important to him!

He is concerned of his looks and has recently lost around 40+ pounds… Looking good!

Last Birthday…                                    3 months later at Christmas…

He is more content around me and his Dad…

He has become a wonderful person

He loves his nieces and nephew above all things…

with Kennedy, Carson and Taylor…

Wants to do for them and wants them to succeed…

He’s achieved so much in his 42 years… more than he realizes… but, being his Mom I see the accomplishments

Happy Birthday to my first-born… my Doug!
