My daddy is 50 today. A few days ago I asked daddy if I needed to start calling him something more distinguished such as, "Father Dear" being that he would be reaching such an elegant stage of life. He replied that he didn't care what I called him as long as I don't stop loving him. Awesome man.
I pondered on what gift to give daddy that appropriately coupled with turning fifty. Daddy doesn't care about gifts, as most parents don't, however, I wanted to get him something. Playing around with ideas, I mentioned to Anton that I was going to get a bed pan and fill it with Depends, Ben-Gay, Memory Enhancer Supplements, A "Gift Certificate" to his favorite pharmacy and some other "old folk" stuff!
Well, I have decided to give daddy something that is real, from my heart. So, a written tribute, highlighting his greatness in his 50 years, is what will be presented to my daddy. Of course I can't share it right now with you all because I want him to be the first to read it, so y'all will have to wait.
Oh, the photo was taken in 2006 at a Family Reunion. No, it's not the most recent photo I have of daddy, but it is one of the rare photos that I have of my daddy in a "normal" state! He is usually doing something silly, ya know, puttin' on a show for the camera. The beautiful woman beside him is his bride, my mommy, of course!
Happy Birthday Daddy!!!
