As I posted here earlier, I thought my dad was dead. He isint. He contacted me last saturday. He looked up my name on google, found an amazon review I did and then looked up my username and found this place, and all the posts about my life. He e mailed me through this site and he called me. I know what you guys are thinking, prank or scam. Its not. He sent me a picture that looks a lot like me, and he sent me a younger picture of him and my mom that really looks like me. He talked to my mom and it really is him.

My dad is a chemical engineer and I have three siblings. And I probabally have my postings at Gamingtrend to thank. Heres some pictures

on a side note, is your dad is the guy from Welcome Back Kotter?  I figure he's the guy with the mustache in the last pic, and he's got the look going  icon_wink icon_biggrin

I haven't seen it as a bumper sticker, but you can get it as a T-Shirt.

I've been following your OO thread.  You could do your own made-for-TV movie with this story.

I hope nothing but good comes from this. I'm curious about your mom's reaction to speaking with him,  any why did she say he was dead? I went over to the site that shall remain nameless, and a very good point was brought up by rlmullen.  Be careful.

Crazy cool. Sometimes I think the internet makes it far too easy for people to become accessible to each other, but in this case that's a good thing for sure.

Well we can stop the paternity tests to see if one of us is his father (I think it's Ike), so that's a benefit.
