Happy father’s day to the father of my best friend and wife. Even though I did not get to know him very well due to him passing shortly after our marriage. I feel I got to know him through his kids.
I am wearing his wedding band. I lost mine several years ago when I had lost all my weight. My dear sweet Mother-in-law gave me Earl’s and I have been wearing it ever since. Oh by the way I have gained a lot of my weight back oh well.
This is the weekend to celebrate our father’s, dad, pop’s are what ever our children named us. It has now been 40 years since my dad passed. I do miss him he was a great man who provided for his family. He was not afraid to give us a spanking if needed which I myself needed quite often, and I feel that I am a better man for it. Of course I am not sure what my on kids feel about when I would spank them, but they have all turned out to be the best children that a dad could ask for. I know that both of my sons do not believe in spanking their boys but all 4 of them have become wonderful grandchildren in my opinion.
We knew this day was coming. My two youngest grandsons only live about 4 blocks from us. We were having a cook out here at the house to celebrate my old man birthday of 71 years young. When I heard some kids out in the front yard, the door bell rang and the boys came into the house, they were so excited they immediately told me that mom and dad wasn’t with them but they had ridden their bikes over to find out what time we wanted them for the cook out.
They took of and went back home. After a little bit we received a text from our daughter-in-law saying the boys were on their way back to our house on their bikes so Mama went out and took a picture of them. They felt like they were getting so big now that they could ride over without their mom or dad with them.
