Krissy's Photo Scavenger Hunt this week honors Dads. Happy Father's Day, Dad!! I have been sitting for awhile trying to think what traits I have gotten from my Father. I think I am a mix of my Mom and Dad. My Dad will be 80 next year. He is still very spry - he drives, walks a lot, uses the computer, and is still very involved in his children's lives. Many people think he is 10 - 20 years younger than he is. My Dad worked for the U.S. Government for 40 years as a petroleum engineer. He and my Mom have retired to his home state Pennsylvania. I moved up here from Virginia after a divorce when I needed some help from my parents. I had only intended to be here for a month or two. I have stayed here since then - 17 years!! My Dad has always been there for his family members when they have a problem with wisdom and guidance. He is even often there for my friends and boyfriends to lend an ear and a solution with this same wisdom. He is vocal about his opinions concerning plights of the oppressed (i.e. the mentally ill, the needy). I believe I have gotten this trait from my Dad. My parents have been married for almost 50 years. They have shown me how to stick together through life's troubles. My Dad has a love for words and knowledge. He and my Mom always have a dictionary, encyclopedia and map sitting close by. I have come to do the same in my home. He can also talk up a storm. If there is ten seconds of silence in a room my Dad is not in it! LOL I can talk up a storm as well, although I do have quiet times, my Dad does not. LOL I affectionately call my Dad, Dadddeeooo. He calls me quite often. He loves his children with actions and I love this about him. Thanks for all you do and have done for me, Daddeeeooo!! Happy Father's Day to my wonderful Dadddeeeeoooo!!!
