Yesterday, was Father’s Day. I have told you much in past blogs about him, but today I want to show you what my dad is to me.
See this smile? I love it when he smiles.
When I think of my dad, many things come to mind.
and (I know that I mentioned that he has lots of tools. This is only his garage.)
and (He also has a workshop downstairs in the basement!)
and (where he has more tools)
and (I told you he didn’t need any more tools!!!~~dad, doncha’ think ya ought to take it easy on the stores??? )
His guns…( this is his 1864 Pennsylvania Long Rifle. It was my grandfathers. This is one sweet gun! and wow! is it heavy!!!)
I won’t bore you with the details of all of these guns. I asked the boy if he would go take a picture of his Gramps’s guns, he said “you mean myyy guns, right?”
(This is his quick draw gun belt….I have a story about that…..but I won’t share now. You can see his pistols laying on the shelf there at the bottom of the picture.)
Him ridding himself of his tie at the soonest possible moment…
His beautiful love for my mom…
His love of westerns…(be it Louis L’Amour books or movies…especially Conagher. Oh…look! More tools!!! My question is why does he have his movies downstairs in the basement???)
and his ability to fix a cruise control with a bit of electrical tape. Yep! He can fix anything! I was wrong dad. Sorry!!!
He asked for 3 things for Father’s day. 1. an SUV…..bwahahahahaha~~in your dreams dad~~ 2. Lemon Iced Box Dessert~~check! the male chocolate chip made him one, and 3. cash, large bills in a paper sack.
Check! 1 paper bag with cash in it. I kept the big bills all for myself. I stuck him with the ones.
How did you celebrate your father, yesterday?
PS…..just because I can’t stop looking at her…
