Daddy

Yeah, I still call my father "Daddy." What's it to you. It's his name and has been as long as I can remember. I don't plan to call him anything else. I couldn't believe when my oldest brother went away to college and came back home calling him "Dad." What a betrayal. How shallow could he be? I'm just crazy that way.

Daddy dedicated his life to us, his family, and he's still busily engaged in making life better for everyone around him--even at 81. I love him forever and always. Happy Father's Day, Daddy.

Found your blog at Patti's place and had to check it out as my fourth novel is based in China, a place I just spent 17 glorious days and enjoyed delicious LOTUS ROOT!!

What a fun place this is!!!

Love the Father's Day post and the prior one about your schedule.

If you have a chance, drop by my place.

Blessings,

He really is the best. He makes the best grand-daddy in the world. (And I call my dad Daddy, too.)

Your brother is struggling with what it means to be a man. He is still searching. He is not as mature as you ... or as loving. Have compassion on a sibling walking in the dark.

You wrote a beautiful tribute to your father. Roland

Thank you so much for the camera tip you left on my blog this week! I had a feeling it was something like that, but (I confess) I was too lazy to look it up. I appreciate your help!!
