Been a while since I blog everyone here but when you work in retail it keeps you busy love the commisions and paychecks this time of year!! I am glad it keeps me busy it has been 14 years since my dad had passed away from colon cancer and lost my mother two years ago, I always remember the good times but think of how tough my dad Robert had in last months which was in November he got so sick he insited going to a nursing home during this time and he was only 57 and past less than two months in Januray, You get to really appriciate what you have had and I thank God for my wife, kids and my health. One thing that make me smile a lot is looking in my Garage and seeing that Trans Am of mine and wish I had my Dad with to take it for a spin him self. He actually had a 1969 Dodge staion wagon; I thought it was such a lame car but boy he put me in my place when I was little brat then, the engine wore out and he found a 454 police interceptor in it and scared the crap out me when he put that in, THOSE WERE THE DAYS. I need to get some pictures up on that car it was a sleeper but love the green clolor solid green no woody.

Well to all have family and loves ones out there hug them and love them even the one that can drive you crazy once in a while!!

Oh yeah, and my dad took one of my transams for a spin about 10 years ago and blew the motor up in it!!! Wasn't as funny then, but still funny. I don't even have that one any more. My husband at the time was much less happy than me about it.haha It is still a great memory and typical of my dad.haha

My Dad is gone 16 years, Mom September 8, 2007. Every time I look at my 1960 Plymouth, which was our family car in the 60's to early 70's, I can't help but see Dad behind the wheel, or remember Mom taking us to school in that car, or grocery shopping. My Parents' anniversary was November 29th, so imagine how I feel today. frown image

Oh, and Dad drove my T/A, interesting little story behind that time, but I'll suffice it to say, that Dad proved he could easily handle that car. smile image

Wow. I'm sorry to hear all of that. I lost 8 people in 15 months in 2006, 2007, including mom, dad, second brother and grandmother so I understand. We buried a second brother the day before Thanksgiving, 2006, my grandmother died Christmas day, 2006 and my dad died the day after father's day 2007, so I know exactly what you mean. My mom was sick for a while, but my dad died very unexpectedly at 58 years old, and I'm not sure which one was worse. My dad took my TA for a spin to take his girlfriend for a ride one month before he died. That is a great memory. Amen to your last sentence.
