First fathers day without a father
Yeah, it sucks. I think that's why I have been so emotional lately.. Anyway, happy fathers day to all you dads out there and if you still have your dad make sure you tell him how much he means to you. I know some people had fathers that were lousy. I was blessed. My dad was not flawless, he was a mean drunk but luckily he didn't drink that much. He hated my dogs. He loved cats though, go figure. But he loved me completely, and never made me feel bad about who I was, was there for me when no one else was.

The picture, was taken in the early 50's. He served in Korea, I believe this picture was taken on the way over or from there. I had a time with this, I took a picture of a picture and I can not figure out how to turn my flash off. But i was able to fix it some with paint shop. It looks OK, so maybe I will try some more pictures of pictures. LOL If I had a scanner it would be easier but hey I work with what I have :)

I was still dizzy this morning when I got up but it seems better now so I may take myself to a movie. Hubby is working and I wanna see Knocked up.

Dads may not be perfect, but we love them anyway. Least that's how I think of my own dad.

That picture of your father...he looks eerily like my own dad in the fifties. Though of course it looks like your father had dark hair and my dad was a carrot-top. Must be the hairstyle and glasses. Still...very similar.

(By the way, the good news that I hinted at on my blog the other best friend Tai got engaged. And she is marrying another very good friend of mine. Double happiness!) :)

But remember just because he is not here doesn't mean you can't wish him a happy Father's Day. I am sure your dad will be OK as long as you are OK. Since my dad left us almost four years ago let's wish them together a Happy Father's Day.

I love the picture of your dad. No one is perfect but a dad's love is....

I hope you do a review of the movie. I'd been kind of wanting to see it but not so sure :)
