Father's Day 2013

Yours truly and my daddy

I could not let today go by without acknowledging my "dear old dad" (he used to refer to himself that way!).

He was not only there for my mother and I, but for other relatives, siblings, in-laws, nieces, nephews, friends, neighbors, and even total strangers  (either while on duty as a NYC fireman or because he just happened to be in the 'right place').

Happy Father's Day in Heaven, Daddy.  Love you always.

  22. Barb,
    Thanks so much for stopping by and for your very kind comment about my creativity. many people think I am crazy with what I do to my house. My own Mother used to call me a Gypsy!! LOL!! Sometimes I do think that if i could just turn off my mind which is always thinking, I would have a lot more time and be better off!!
    Lol!
    So your words are so much appreciated!

    Hugs,
    Deb

Thank you for visitng us and yes, we hadn't been at Disney since our two daughters were small, so that is over 20 years and it's grown a lot,filled with much things to see and enjoy, it was such a different experience with the grandgirls. Enjoy your weekend.
