I am very lucky to have a close relationship with my Dad. And especially after my mom died he has been my rock!! He is always there for me to listen, talk, motivate and encourage me, and he is G-R-E-A-T with the kids..... they LOVE their "Gamps" (it's a cute story how the name "Gamps" was started....another time) and he loves them to. He loves to come be a big kid with them and he loves to teach them new things too....especially science related, as he is WAY into that suff.
Angie and I took him to brunch this morning at Cracker Barrel and we had a really nice time!! And of course they had to get in a game of checkers...... he was "trying" to teach her to play.... but she's 3 and well, you can imagine how well she "learned"!!
HAPPY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY DADDY!!! Love, Halfpint (that's my nickname from my dad)
AND, yesterday was my best friend's birthday and we all went out for dinner and gambling at a casino about an hour from here (it's on Seminole Indian land, so I guess that's how it is legal).
I am not a gambler, but I do like to throw my money away in the slot machines.. he-he!!
HAPPY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, my friend!!!
