In this transcription of a recording from 2014, Christine asked me about Patrick’s trip to the Prescott Rally.
CR: When you were at the Prescott Rally, and he was there, were you… could you see him, where he was?
JD: We broke down right around the corner from him!
CR: And how did that make you feel, having him there?
JD: I really enjoyed having him there. I realized… partly because I wanted him to see the sport, and partly because it meant a lot to me that he was willing to go there even though it was not his thing. He was willing to go there for me, and that was nice.
CR: It sounds like he enjoyed it. I was afraid he wouldn’t, it would just be long and hot, but it sounds like he really enjoyed it.
CR: I noticed last night he said “I’m your father, let’s drop the…”
JD: Yeah, the “other father” thing.
CR: Prior to that, he would always say “your other dad” or something like that. Always sort of preface that…
JD: Yep, it was an interesting…
CR: That to me was an indication, that there was some bonding that had taken place, even during the short time he was here (this time).
I’m the son of Patrick of Meadows.
