Rememberances

Today is my father's birthday, that is, if he hadn't passed away in 2004.  There are days when I miss him so terribly, that I feel there is a hole in my chest.  And then other times, I think of love and fun, Sir Graves Ghastly movies on Saturday afternoons, and the World Series Winning Detroit Tigers of 1984, and I smile and know that Angel Dad is watching from heaven.  Happy Birthday, Puba!

(Dig that crazy tie!)
And an old friend left us last week for The Rainbow Bridge: Spit Spot. I posted about his recent 20th birthday here.  His family is very sad, yet have a houseful of rowdy kittens to lick away their tears.
Farewell, Angel Spit Spot

  1. So sorry about your Dad. Sounds like a lovely man.
    I lost my Dad in 2009, I understand the hole in the chest feeling.
    I didn't know Spit Spot had left us.
    Take care.

  19. I am sorry about your Dad. He sounds like a wonderful person. Birthdays seem to be especially hard. My dad died in July 1997. I cannot believe it has been almost 20 years.
