......
.... likes a chocolate cake with blue frosting for his birthday (because that's how it was when he was little), shares his apple on Sundays with Hermie, had a pet crow named John, slept under the stars with his brother, grew up in Pennsylvania, loves to fish, wears a shady brady while building beautiful fireplaces and walls with bricks and stone, wrote letters to Mom from his navy ship during the Vietnam war, enjoys evenings playing poker or toasting marshmallows out back, will come at a moment's notice no matter the time of day, wears blue to match his blue eyes, shares the number 21 with me, sings a funny chicken song, and is the very best dad in the world, has always been gentle and loving and supportive with all of his girls, thank you, Dad. xoxo

Happy Birthday!!!

Happy Birthday to your dad! My dad shares a 21 with you too, and has blue eyes, and is the very best dad in the world too. Wish I could see my dad on Sundays...too many mountain ranges and time zones separate us, though.

Hope you enjoyed your plums and water today!!
