Vintage Pictures

Here are a few pictures of my dad that I found this week from way back in the day. (So far back that I wasn't even born yet!)

My Birthday Project

This is a big birthday coming up in about 2 weeks.

The big 4 0


I want to make a playlist of some of the truly special songs that have played a part in my life so far and I want things to cross all the genres I've loved in my life.

There's a lot of music to go through, but I can guarantee you'll see these artists in the mix:

Elvis Costello
Duran Duran
The Monkees
The Beatles
The Moody Blues
Celtic Thunder
Gordon Lightfoot
Lady Antebellum
Nick Lowe
Oingo Boingo

Here's hoping I get it done in time...and then I'll put it on my little ipod shuffle and enjoy.

Its Hard Letting Go

My dad's days are winding down.

I can't believe I'm typing that.

My dad is a strong man. I think even now he is battling with God, who is knocking on the door telling him, his time is coming, but he's telling him no.

I don't think I've ever felt such pain. I can't even begin to imagine what my mom feels like. This is the man she's spent all her life with. They've been married 62 years. That's more than half of her life.

My brother had the audacity to say his children don't want to talk to her, because all she talks about is dad. What is there for her to talk about.

Life isn't full of "the happy" right now.

Any person that doesn't understand that, is pretty unfeeling. Any person that would say that to their mother who is already grieving, should be kicked in the seat of their pants.

I can't believe a son would act that way when it comes to a father that loves him dearly.

But that is a rant for another day.

Keep us in your prayers.

Hump Day Hunks

It has been a hard few weeks, I know I've been a bad blogger, but there was no way I can blog much with my dad's health the way it is.

So, to lighten things up...have some hunks!

OK....this is scary..I wonder if Justin knows he has a much younger doppelganger.

A Little Leave Of Absence

If you follow my facebook page, you'll know that dad's condition is worsening. They sent him home from the hospital on Wednesday, not because he was improving, but because there was nothing more that they could do.

My heart is breaking, to see my father that 2 weeks ago was so feisty and so full of it being brought low. My heart aches for my mother, who is slowly losing the man she has spent the last 62 years of her life with.

I told her I was jealous of her, because I'll never have someone love me the way that dad loves her. It is true love at its finest. We should all be so lucky. Even when things don't go right, love is always there.

Pray for us....
