I grew up with a dad who was a good dad and a mom who did a lot to drag us down. Without getting into it, I watched our modest home turn into something that would be on a reality TV show for being filthy. It completely fell apart and so did our relationships to a degree. I haven’t been home in about two years because I can’t bear to look at the shit hole it’s become. One thing I miss though from when I was a kid was my dad had a garden, a small one behind our garage. He worked all the time, still does at 75 because he’s too broke not to. Anyway, he didn’t have time for hobbies but he had that garden. The only gifts I ever knew to get him related to that. So when shit really went south for them, he didn’t have time or energy to keep it up. Sucks. So... he used to have a garden. It was the one thing that didn’t make him seem broken. Now, he doesn’t have that. - Frank Tsoukalas, Bass
