Jackson Browne - These Days

February Daddy's birthday. I've thought about him all day. Today he would have been 80. I can't imagine Daddy being 80....he was so full of life. You never knew what he was going to say or do. He was one of those people you were always so happy to see. He had a certain engery to him.

I think about him almost everyday. I haven't forgotten. Some days I think of him more than others, no rhyme or reason. I have a feeling he is having a party today in Heaven. I love you Daddy...always have, always will.

Carol-your baby girl


  1. I so relate to your feelings about your Dad. I have them so for my long gone Mom and Dad. Dad will be gone 15 years Tuesday. Seems it was only yesterday when the wheels came off my Life. My, how it gets away...

    I have a sneaking suspicion he knew how great a daughter he has in you.


  2. We were very close. I went everywhere he did. I was his baby girl that is for sure.

  3. Apparently it is a Dad day. My dad's biopsy came back and it is definitely cancer. They aren't even talking surgery, chemo, etc. They have gone straight to hospice care and "making him comfortable." I don't think anyone has said the words terminal to my brother, but I don't think you have to. They said that they have yet to determine what stage the cancer is at, but I am now expecting a 4. It is ironic. You can go from praying for benign to expecting a 4 in three days. Snap. Bang. Boom. There goes your life. Shoes got it right. The wheels come off and there is no going back. I am just sick.
