Father's Day, a day to be thankful for your Father.
I wanted to think of things I remember about my Daddy.
-He loved the beach, Gulf of Mexico. He loved the sun. He was always tan. He loved
to fish. Before he passed he was working on a fiberglass sailboat. He wanted to
leave and just sail. I have some of those traits but mine would be on land just
traveling the world.
-He drank his coffee with Coffemate. I do the same and I add Splenda because I like
mine sweet and creamy. I still have his beat up stainless steel thermos.
-He had beautiful handwriting. He was a Civil Engineer and draftsman. They have
a special penmanship.
-He had beautiful feet. He took very good care of them. I get a pedicure every 2
weeks. He would have loved getting a pedicure.
-He could open the frig and make a meal out of nothing. Fried potatoes, cornbread
fritters, fried apples. I love fried potatoes, cornbread and fried apples.
-He hung his wash on the clothesline outside. One of the last times I saw him he had
all his whites hanging on a line.
-He loved his Mother. I loved his Mother as well. She could be an inspiration. She
read the Bible every day. He gave her an orchid corsage every Mother's Day.
-He always told me he loved me. We had a odd relationship after he separated from
my Mom but he always said he loved me.
I miss you Daddy, you will always be a part of me.
