It’s a shock to the system when your parents die and you have to be the one responsible for all family matters.
This is a new experience for me, I don’t know if anyone else can relate to it.
First I had to deal with the lawyers and the bankers, settling accounts and such. Then I dealt with the insurance companies, who are even less fun than the bankers! Finally I had to go through my parents house and property and sort out their personal effects. This is how I came to find out that my dad had a secret second family in Lowell, Michigan. Don’t worry this isn’t one of those weepy blog posts about how hard my life is, because honestly I love my newly discovered relatives, and I also love the town of Lowell. It’s not a big town, but there is always a lot to do and to see in the Lowell area. I have always loved fishing, and the Flat River next to Lowell offers a wide array of great fishing spots. Another thing I have loved for years is smoking cannabis, which is another aspect of Lowell that surprised me. I never thought a town as small as Lowell would have such amazing locally grown cannabis. The only thing better than going fishing is going fishing with a fat sack of cannabis, and Lowell has me covered on both counts! One day I could see myself settling down in Lowell for good, but for the moment I will just enjoy my time here as I get to know my secret other family.
