    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    My condolences to you and your family on the loss of your father. I lost a parent last year and it is a difficult and stressful time. My thoughts are with you...

    Thanks, Haylen. When you've had a glorious run, a good long rest, afterwards, doesn't suck.

    After he was laid to rest, we all had a helluva party. That was actually in his will...so, we were just following orders. lol

    A party sounds like a great way to celebrate a glorious run...I'm sure he'd be thrilled to hear that his kids are still following his orders

    Thankee, Judy.
    My Dad & I played golf on a public course near his home, once, every month until he couldn't walk anymore. He was a lousy golfer, at best. Dangerous would be more accurate, really...

    At the 10th tee, he'd hand out home-made PBJ sandwiches (on wheat!; just awful) and a banana to our playing partners for the day. Most would graciously accept and say, "Thank you". But, sometimes, they would laugh nervously and say, "No thanks, I ate just, before..."

    My dad would smile and say, "Please, take it. I made it for you. Just save it for later..." And, then he would shake hands.

    That was my dad. You don't have to agree. But, a smile and hand shake was required...



    For those, here, with such little grace and curse every bad bounce of the ball, I can only wonder how hard life must be. Especially, when all's you have to do is make a pbj sandwich for someone...anyone...and you're problems are solved.

    It's that easy...

    What a lovely tribute to your dad. Sounds like he made his life all her wanted it to be and better for others as well. My condolences, brunosbud, and yet, I'm a little jealous as well;-)
