There is no limits to what I would do for him or mom for that
matter. Dad came in to see his girls for his birthday. Mom was
sick and has been for days. She stayed home and we sent food home
to her. I miss her. The top picture makes me smile and tear up at the
same time. He so looks like my grandpa Clifton. I miss him. He was
a neat man. But so is my dad! I wonder sometimes leaving home at
14 like I did how he taught me so much but he did. I was always a
daddy's girl in a way. I always looked for approval.. I remember
following him out to his shop just to be with him. We would have
shop stove fires and it was fun to throw anything and everything in them.
Ooops I didnt know Aqua Net cans of hairspray could not go in there.
It wasnt until years later that I found out one of his scars was from where
it popped out and landed on his arm. He is always so proud of his girls.
Especially being twins and coming 19 yrs later than the other four. He
and mom was so proud. He liked to take us and show us off as he would
say. There was no limits to what we could have. We were spoiled to say
the least. Many times the other brothers and sisters said what did you do
with our parents. They worked opposite shifts so they would be with us
and give us everything we needed. We never went without. I like to say I
had a part in the buisness he started 22 yrs ago to supplement his
retirement. We did alot together and it was until I got pregnant that I didnt
help so much... Anyways down memory lane a bit. I love you dad!
