263. Lying in a made bed

He never thought it would come to this, Ken didn't. Which probably stood to prove his father's opinion of his only son. From the age of 15 when he lost his virginity to Annette Johnson, on the hay bales high up in old man Winter's shed, Ken had a liking for women and the sports they play. He just had not thought through the consequences.

So, here he was aged 32 with four children under the age of ten, a basic job driving road grader for the Wingecarribbee Shire, living in a weather-board two bedroom shack on the outskirts of Picton. And he still had the shelia from the pub on the side. It wasn't that he didn't love his kids, he just didn't take responsibility for his actions.

Ken, blamed his father, which was par for the course. His father adored his grandkids and was in a bind.
