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!!!
