I am a cop in Foley. I came over here to give kayaking a shot before the kids get busy

“I just got this kayak. I was called to unlock a door because I am a cop in Foley. It took 40 minutes to open the door and it was in the back and he sold it to me. I just worked 7 days in a row and I came over here to give kayaking a shot before the kids get busy. When I was a kid, I came down here almost every day. It is kind of sad because the water was so clear when I was a kid. But it was nice to be out there and took pictures of the birds for my kids. I have a masters degree in music and I wanted to be a psychiatrist. I play saxophone and a little bass now. I have four kids under the age of six. I was in New Orleans in graduate school and wanted to go to the city. I moved to New York City to stay with my cousin who is a preacher at a wealthy church. I lived in Brooklyn and worked in an internship with a literary agent editing off-Broadway plays. The guy I worked for shot a Showtime show called “Chicken” that didn’t get picked up. Chicken is what you call young gigolos in California, and the show was about his experiences.  I also played music with musicians from the Lincoln Center orchestra. I wanted to get married it would have been a struggle to have a family in Brooklyn. My wife said I should teach English in Korea and save up some money. We went there for a year and I taught English and band in a school, and wound up in a band and on TV. We would have stayed longer, but our boss broke into our apartment to steal our passports to keep us in the country. I hadn’t planned on moving back here but I went back to school at South to become a clinical social worker and things fell apart. My parents have 50-60 acres in Baldwin County and built a new house there and left behind their old house. My wife suggested we fix up that house and move there, but I didn’t know how to fix up a house and didn’t want to stay in Alabama. We fixed up the house and now we don’t have a mortgage. I thought I had a school as a band director at a local band, but that fell through and I was offered a jail job and worked there until a friend told me to be a cop in Foley. I never thought I would be a cop, but I have been one for four years. It is kind of like teaching and you see how much people don’t know. You meet kids’ parents and you realize the parents aren’t teaching them anything. They say, ‘He is going to be just like me and he is not going to amount to anything.’ Some kids don’t have a chance. It’s a struggle to make it whatever you do. I want my kids to have a chance.”
