My Dad at his surprise birthday party in April 2009. He turned 80!! Still wearing his Chicago White Sox jacket. I love my Dad!!





He had just eaten a blue sucker when he came home to the surprise party. He had a blue tongue like a little kid.

That's just plain awesome! Makes me think of this song " He didn't have to be" by Brad Paisley.





Title: Brad Paisley - He Didn't Have To Be lyrics

When a single mom goes out on a date with somebody new
It always winds up feeling more like a job interview
My momma used to wonder if she'd ever meet someone
Who wouldn't find out about me and then turn around and run

I met the man I call my dad when I was five years old
He took my mom out to a movie and for once I got to go
A few months later I remember lying there in bed
I overheard him pop the question and prayed that she'd say yes

And then all of a sudden
Oh, it seemed so strange to me
How we went from something's missing
To a family
Lookin' back all I can say
About all the things he did for me
Is I hope I'm at least half the dad
That he didn't have to be

I met the girl that's now my wife about three years ago
We had the perfect marriage but we wanted somethin' more
Now here I stand surrounded by our family and friends
Crowded 'round the nursery window as they bring the baby in

And now all of a sudden
It seemed so strange to me
How we've gone from something's missing
To a family
Lookin' through the glass I think about the man
That's standin' next to me
And I hope I'm at least half the dad
That he didn't have to be

Lookin' back all I can say
About all the things he did for me
Is I hope I'm at least half the dad
That he didn't have to be

Yeah, I hope I'm at least half the dad
That he didn't have to be
Because he didn't have to be
You know he didn't have to be

Taken several years ago at around age 86 or so...



30 years in the Corps and he still cuts an imposing figure in uniform.

My dad in Naples when my brother and I were born. Middle of front row.




Me and my brother's first Christmas. Nobody knew that in little more than 16 years Dad would be gone. Miss him a lot.
