Tomorrow is Father's Day and I love my brother's quote on FaceBook.
"Treasurer your father before he becomes a buried treasurer."
With my brother, you sometimes don't know how he would say this if her were in the room. At first, I did laugh out loud and trust me, our dad would have done the same. As a matter of fact we had a grand time at his grave site burial - yup laughter and tears especially when my brother and I started to break out in song (always sung on the road when we were young and encouraged by Dad) 99 bottles of beer on the wall . . . My aunt called a halt to that "celebration" - yes, a good time was had by all.
So I just wanted all of you who still have your Dad around -- cherish the time that you have them. Yes we have all been through good times and bad with our parents. I choose to honor his time here on earth. I'm sure him and Mama are having a fine time in heaven watching their two children (my brother and me) trip through this life with laughter and still trying to one up each other.
Don't let me get started on brothers! OK, love you baby bro!
