My Dads B-Day

Happy 67th Birthday Dad!!!
When my dad was younger he was so painfully shy if he saw someone he knew walking down the street he would cross the street so he wouldn’t have to talk to them. But he overcame this and I have spent a lot of time wishing he would stop talking to people so we could go.

My dad loves to scare people, and he has a knack of knowing when the scary moment in a movie will be and either grab or yell to make you jump. Sadly he passed this on to my brother Mark and I now have to be on my guard and watch out for both of them.

My dad loves movies and I find it funny what movies he loves. Some of his favorites are Raising Arizona, O Brother Where Art Thou, Fargo (yeah he likes the Coen Brothers) and Falling Down. If any of these movies are on TV he is watching them. He also likes John Wayne movies; one of our favorites is The Quite Man.

He loves music and passed that on to his children, we all have a knowledge and love for the oldies. I love seeing him watching old concerts or finding old songs on youtube.

My dad might not be politically correct, but he loves and looks at everyone like they are his brothers and sisters. He is always befriending people from all over the world, India or Africa he loves everyone the same. Well maybe not politicians but really who loves politicians?

He especially loves his family, I love watching him with the grandkids he is a great dad & grandpa.


  1. Oh, this is sweet Connie. I hardly know your dad & even I love him. He seems like a really good guy.

  2. You forgot to mention his fear of drive threws. He he. He is so funny. Why is it that just thinking about her Daddy can make a girl cry?
    I love him so much, yet didn't call him today and now it is too late. Sheesh I am awful.

  3. Those kids he is with are so cute!
    This was a really nice post to get to read.
