Thumbs up Sad story but really good ending

Subject: St. Louis County Child Custody Battle

Heartwrenching court-room drama:

From St. Louis, MO - A seven-year old boy was at

the center of a St. Louis County courtroom drama this morning,

when his lawyers challenged a court ruling over who should have custody

of him. The boy has a lifelong history of being beaten by his parents

and the judge initially awarded custody to his aunt and uncle, in

keeping with child custody law and regulations requiring that

family unity be maintained to the highest degree possible.

The boy surprised the court when he proclaimed that his

uncle beat him nearly as much his parents and he adamantly refused to

live with them. When the judge then suggested that he live with

his grandparents, the boy cried and said that they not only abused

him but were known to withhold food on occasion. After considering the

remainder of the immediate family and learning that domestic violence

was apparently a way of life among them, the judge took the unprecedented

step of allowing the boy to propose who should have custody of him.

After two recesses to check legal references and confer

with the child welfare officials, the judge granted temporary

custody to the St. Louis Rams, whom the court officials and the boy

firmly believe are not capable of beating anyone.

Default I have a problem....

Lately my wife has been working alot of evening shifts and for the past couple months has been carpooling with a male co-worker. At first I didn't mind, I would rather have someone with her in case she has car trouble or something like that, but it seems that they have become a little bit more than friends. You know the scenario, the phone calls that hangup, she starts wearing nice clothes to work, talking about him all the time, etc. I don't know what to think. If I'm out in the garage when she gets home (usually after midnight) he just drops her off and leaves, but if the lights are off in the garage and I'm in the house (they think I'm sleeping) they sit out in the car for like twenty minutes. I asked her once what they were doing, she said "just talking"....whatever. So last night I decide that I'm going to see what really goes on out there. I leave the garage door open, but turn out all the lights. About the time she usually gets home, I go out and hide in the garage and wait. In a few minutes, his car pulls into my driveway, and I'm hiding behind my boat. When his headlights shine through the garage and onto my boat, I see something that I just can't believe. The prop is knicked and one blade has been bent. Should I change the prop or just get it straighted out?

What a bummer I'd say ya really need to change the prop...once something is broken, it can be almost impossible to straighten it out...You poor guy... Y'all really must be heartbroken about such a development. I mean, how can a guy have something this drastic happen to him?

And so unexpected..Scheesh, y'all are sure lucky to have found this out in time before something like,,oh , ya know, a bass fishing tourney or something equally as important. Wish y'all the very best Bassman, wow...what a crying shame. Poor guy...

Unhappy Poor CBM....


It is quite the quandary, indeed. Please don't do anything before thinking it through, ok???? This is a very important decision to make, and you have to consider all sides.....there are consequences involved. Just try to remain rational and factor in all of your options, ok?

With that said....I think I must concur with NV tho....The last thing you need is for a major problem to arise when you are in the middle of a tourney, or on the hot trail of the 'old man'. I feel so badly for you....I mean....how long has this been going on?????? Ya know??? They say 'what you don't know won't hurt you', but in this situationl....I'm just not so sure!

My recommendation is to consult the pros.....speak with someone that deals with this sort of thing all the time.....D*mn!!! And Bass Pro Shop is so far away... Just stay strong, man!!! The answer will come to you. In the meantime....we're here for ya....prayin' for ya. Let us know how it works out, ok? I'm soooooo sorry, CBM!!!

Wishin' you the best,
