Happy 80th Birthday Dad!
I was going through some pictures last night and found this one of Dad. This was taken when Mom and Dad were having a yard sale in July 2005. Kyle,....my nephew,.....yeah you know the one (with the shirt) made the sign and put it up behind Dad. I named the picture "Dad for sale" and the sign says "Bitter Old Man For Sale". I'm not sure if he knew the sign was behind him or not, but maybe Kyle can verify one way or the other. Anyway, it would have been Dad's 80th Birthday yesterday. It was a hard day to get through but I think he got the best birthday present ever when he looked up and saw Kelpie running towards him. I am very sad for Kadie and her family,....especially Spencer because he lost a "best friend", but I hope some day when he is older he'll understand his Great Grandpa got his "best friend" back to keep him company "up there". Dad,.....I hope you heard us all singing happy birthday to you. We Love Ya'!
