Happy Father's Day to all you great dads out there...to all of you that are sharing this day with your dads and to all of you that are remembering your great dads.
I thought I should share some pics of my dad....he is still around kicking it. I think he is around 83 or so...I never get the age right. I should be talking to him very soon...my dad was one who was VERY strict, very traditional, extremely intelligent and a brillant business man. Most of all he did all he could to provide his family with everything he could. To this day...I still call him up when I am trying to make a decision about something major and get his feedback. To me he is truly wise. I will tell you all an inside secret...Since I was a teenager...I have always called my dad "old man". I have no idea why I began calling him that...I guess since we are the closest among all the kids and him..I had to have something that was just between him and me. Well hence the name--Old Man.
To this day--NO ONE else in the family is allowed to call him that...and he will tell them that it is my name to call him and no one else's...it is that connection between us, something else that makes our bond more closer.
Well...Here are some pics of Old Man:
This is Old Man in Morrocco about twenty something years ago when he and my mom decided to do the Europe trip and try it all.
Old Man in his backyard before he and Mom moved down south.This was taken almost a year ago.
Old man sitting in a porch chair because all their furniture at this point had been packed getting ready for the big move. Taken almost a year ago.
Taken this past March ... Old man arrived with mom to pick up my daughter for spring break. She spent almost two weeks with them and of course they spoiled her rotten.
I just wanted to share a few pics...I have alot more...but did not want to overwhelm on the loading of pictures. I do hope you all have a great day... Enjoy your family and/or friends and show your love to all those that you care about!!!
