Happy birthday DAD!!!

Today is my dad's birthday!!! He's 70 today. I am the luckiest girl to have a dad like him. He has always worked so hard for our family. He was the only man in the house with my mom raising 6 girls, and we had a lot of girl animals too!!! To make things worse, when most of the girls were living at home, there was only ONE BATHROOM!!! Can you imagine THAT? I'm convinced there's a golden toilet waiting for him in Heaven in a private bathroom!!! He was such a fun dad growing up, if you were ever throwing a temper tantrum, he would lay on the ground and start singing, "if you chance to meet a frown, do not let it stay.....". Not funny at the time, hilarious now!!! He's a funny and tender man. He has a lot of friends and many people that love and respect him. When I was little, he was custodian at Dixie High School, drove school bus and owned Pete's Taxi. How's that for multi-tasking? But I never felt like he wasn't there. A very present father in everything. His love and support has meant the world to me and I love him very much!!! Happy birthday Dad!!! Just remember, 70 is the new, well.... 70 is just 70 and I love you very much!!!! Have a great day!!!

Your dad is great....I remember him singing to us as he was cleaning the floors in the hall at 6am on our way to practice in the mornings. Was such a great way to start the day with a smile, thanks to him!
