Happy Birthday Dad

How the time flies - huh Dad? Now that I am older and wiser I know that this picture of you and mom must seem like it was taken just a moment ago. How fast a lifetime goes by. Here are things that make me think of you today.
  • the smell of sawdust
  • pecans
  • bucket trucks of any kind
  • fly swatters (from an odd memory of listening to a Twins game on the radio at Grandpa Schmitd's driveway)
  • horseradish
  • rice pudding
  • fancy flippy dives
  • night shirts
  • Vicks and white socks to cure a sore throat
  • Camp Isabella - hats from Aunt Julia (where are those?)
There is so much more - my head and heart are full of all you are for me - in memories and for real everyday. I love you Dad - HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!
