Introducing Joseph Stuhlman the parent

I wanted to make an introduce yourself post, tell you all about myself, ups and downs with crypto since 2010, and I am sure that will come one day. But, crypto is not Disneyland and the clowns I met in crypto are not the fun loving type who want to print a smile on every face, they are the horror movie type of clowns. I have also met my share of good people, people with hearts of gold, they are few, but they are out there. I just got back from the Jumpyard a couple of hours ago, so to stay in a good mood I will not talk much about crypto.

After much thought I decided to introduce you to the best part of my life, my little angel, God's gift to me, my 5 year old little princess. That's her in my desktop background pic.

About 7 years ago I decided to take an early retirement, I sold my restaurant business and half of my partnership in a car rental company. Of course as a result I got to spend more time with the wife and you all know where babies come from. Nothing in life prepares you for the feeling of being a parent, the feeling of holding a piece of you in your own hands for the first time.

Being home all the time spending a lot of hours online, I had the luck of getting an introduction to bitcoin in the early days, no not the super early mining days, but the good buy and hold days, and that's what I did with a nice chunk of my retirement money.

The last 5 years were the best in my entire life, I enjoy every minute of every day, I spend most of it with my princess watching kids movies, or going places, and when she is not around, I spend the rest of my free time with crypto, crypto by contrast is a crazy world and my princess helped me keep my sanity.

You probably want to hear about my crypto experience and the mega pumps to the mega dumps that I went through, well I do want to tell you, but I will keep that closer to the 4th of July date.

Everyday, I put my princess to sleep, I sing to her a baby song or read a bed time story, most are made up stories from picture books, the same book can be read in many different ways, yet she never tells me she heard that before, instead she remembers something she liked and says " Papa tell me how the man threw the cat and mouse outside", that changes the story line for me, but again she never hears the end of the story anyway, because by then she is sleeping like an angel.

PS: I will leave you with some apples and oranges

I like apples and oranges.

Apples and oranges are so sweet .

Orange juice is so sweet,
Apple sauce is fun to eat,
Apple pie with ice cream -- what a tasty treat.

Thank you. A parent thinks of himself as the lucky one, until the kids reach the teenage years :)

I like hearing stories about good fathers.

That sounds like a rush to judgment.

How entitled is this "little princess" going to feel?

Do you not hear the schizophrenia in his post?
