Mi Padre

I'm a day late but that's only because I was hangin' with THE man yesterday. Country living, a wading pool, and some sun, made for a relaxing father's day. Meet my dad: ca. 1980

He's a workin' man.
A husband of 27 years.
Father of two.
Classic car fanatic.
Czar of the equipment rental business.

. . .and much more. He's an onion-many concealed layers. My dad isn't the type to say 'I love you.' He's a man of few words. He speaks through actions. He's stubborn and high strung but I know he believes that people are generally good. He often goes out of his way to help people. He's a real guy. Okie work ethic, and dirty fingernails. He gets the job done and has a mighty strong backbone. Aside from that spill. He's just damn cool! He still sports those suave aviators. We've got a lot in common, and even though we don't speak the words to one another, I LOVE YOU! Happy Father's Day!
