  7. I had a difficult complicated childhood. It did not start out that way however. It started out by me being complicated. First I had one of the most loving and giving great grandmothers one could ever have known. Her name was Alice Mathews. She loved and gave me all the comfort, support and everything else that my parents should have provided for me. She even gave them the home they lived in next door to her home. My 5 brothers and sisters and I lived with her. My life seemed almost perfect in the beginning. Alice gave me a well ordered life, with all the creature comforts any child could ever want. She gave me my own 13" Television set when I was about 5 years old. I did not know of any other kid that had one of those when I was growing up. She appreciated everything I liked, and always encouraged me to do my best at whatever I set my mind to do. This all ended when she died when I was nine years of age. Most of my family treated me very cruelly after the tragic event. I was treated as though I were nothing of any importance at all for many years. They got rid of everything I owned that Alice had given me. I have felt quite alone most of my life since I lost my great grandmother Alice. I became an inventor. I devised the worlds first Intelligent Self Flushing Toilet Control System. I applied for patent and received my provisional serial registration for my invention by 1983 from USPTO. I hold patent # 06/650,075 on the Automated Commode Fixture. I never received any money or real credit for my work. It was taken over by greed others. I have never been married. I fell in love with a girl from back home. She did everything it seems in her power to make me as miserable as possible. I chased her for eleven years, then she married a guy she only knew for about two days. I decided to dedicate my life to science. Back in 1986 I constructed a life sized working replica of the "Lost in Space" TV Series Robot model -b9-. College of the Mainland honored me for my scientific contributions to the field of Electronic Science. They added Professor to my name as an honorary title. Someone broke into my home, stole destroyed everything I owned. Then the City of Texas City demolished my home and laboratory. I have started over many times in my life and up to now have faced more than my share of major upsets. I remain despite a great number of adversities optimistic. For the first time in many years I believe that things are going to start to get better in my life. I joined Traffic Academy. I believe that if it continues to work for me towards turning my life around financially at least, I will one day provide one of the most heart wrenching testimonials the world has ever know. I never say never. Until my next post, take care all.
