The chain motels perch all along the US highways and freeways and cluster where they intersect, nestled among convenience stores and gas stations. Convenient, soulless, and relatively inexpensive, they provide a place to rest for a time, take a respite from a journey. They also house meetings, celebrations, and assignations. Inside their homogenous rooms, through their economical walls, you can sometimes hear life’s dramas play out. Many stories end there as the faceless and anonymous nature of chain motels, their very convenience, makes them almost perfect for the tragic endings that come. This is the story of several such endings, stories that take on their own power and strength and become inevitable. They overwhelm actual desire, playing out no matter what outcome we truly want.
“You never know what day your kids are going to remember most about growing up.
You hope that it is a good day, a day when you performed well as a parent. Your greatest fear is that it will be a bad day, a day when you lost your temper or let the dog run out in front of traffic, or a day when something happened that is only talked about in front of high-priced therapists.
In my case it was the day my dad bought sod.”
Thus begins Donald J. Bingle’s award-winning short memoir about his father, a heart-warming, surprising, and humorous tale about how a single incident on a single summer day can become one of a child’s favorite memories of his parent.
This short, simple tale will bring both laughter and tears and create a lasting memory that no mass-produced Father’s Day card can ever duplicate. Pre-load it on your dad’s Kindle for a perfect Father’s Day gift. At about 2,000 words, it is a delightful short read, not a lengthy chore.
