Its Father’s day again, and I have written post after post about my Dad. (click the word post to read more about him) He is the very silly Grampie we all know and love to see on here once and a while. He is always good for a smile. Today’s tribute will have a lot of silly in it…and some sap too. :)
I have been blessed with a Dad that I can be proud of. In making this post, I was perusing a few old albums, and realized that my Dad has been here for almost every pivotal moment of my life…and then some.
He held me close…(even wen I didn’t smell so good…look at Grammie’s face…pretty sure that’s what it means)
we also had similar hair dos…
He was there for everything…
Always invoking a smile from the “Boogie/ Leenie” (me)
He protected us all from Evil (hmm…maybe it was the pants…nope…it was the shirt)
He is a very snappy dresser…always up with the latest fashions.
He made sure I always had wonderful toys to play with, and demonstrate at length for him…(and I do mean at LENGTH…haha) (I also might add that all of the items in that photo…including me…are still in the family!)
He taught me to be the creative girl I am today…(wait…is that the bowl from my potty????) Maybe I should have gotten a lampshade instead. lol Just sayin’ This photo always brings to mind the phrase "shit for brains" hahaha
I used to love sitting in my swings…
…especially when my Dad came home for lunch to sit with me! we must have been swinging fast…see the blur??? hee hee!
He always shared his toys with me…(bet there’s Buddy Holly or the Beatles playin’…maybe the Beach Boys?)
He used to love to dance with my sister and me…and again…I ask you to note…the fashion statement he made…
He took our family lots of places…I think this is the Calgary Zoo…(of all the things I got from my dad…I wish I had gotten the skinny gene!)
He was always so proud of his family!
(it appears that we are all smelling something unpleasant…I bet it’s the one with the big smile who stinks) *)
We were kinda cute weren't we??? (Man did she ever have a devilish smile! lol)
My Dad (as was my Mom) was there for all of the very memorable moments of my life…
…Always cracking a joke or smiling about something…
He has been there proudly smiling …
When I graduated High School...
....When I had my first baby! (I suppose I could put on this one that he loves me when I’m not so cute…hahaha and again I say…why not give me the skinny gene??)
His very first grandson is his biggest admirer now…
…and just like he loved me when I didn’t smell so good…he endures.
Did I ever tell you my Dad has always been my hero???
He was such a good protector…risking life an limb to rescue me from the scariest of monsters! (I bet she had an evil lair somewhere that she would have taken me to!!!) Luv You Grammie…hee hee!
My Dad was there for the good the bad…he was there for everything. He proudly helped pick out my grad dress…and it was gorgeous…hoop and all..
He was the pivotal vote in the choosing and design of my wedding gown…
He was there with bells on the day I wore it by mistake! *)
But all joking aside…
I am who I am today largely because of my Dad.
You may have thought I didn't see,
Or that I hadn't heard,
Life lessons that you taught to me,
But I got every word.
Perhaps you thought I missed it all,
And that we'd grow apart,
But Dad, I picked up everything,
It's written on my heart.
Without you, Dad, I wouldn't be
The (TOOTSIE) I am today;
You built a strong foundation
No one can take away.
I've grown up with your values,
And I'm very glad I did;
So here's to you, dear father,
From your forever grateful kid.

I am so glad my dad is still here…still sharing the moments, and still silly!
Thanks for everything Dad…without you and Mom…me and the kid’s lives wouldn’t be so full. The gang and I can hardly wait to celebrate Father’s day with you!
Happy Father’s Day from your oldest junkin Kid! Love you!
I so hope you all have a wonderful Father’s day!
Until Next time…Happy Father’s Day!
