Happy Father’s Day

Billings, MT  High 84  Low 56

My dad and I in 1949. I sure do miss him. Wishing all the Dad’s a very Happy Father’s Day.

Friday was Todd’s 30th birthday. Hard to believe it’s been 30 years since I was cussing out the nurse in the recovery room. She wanted me to lay on my left side and I wasn’t going to do it. I had toxemia and they induced labor in order to save both our lives. Supposedly laying on your left side will help to bring down high blood pressure. But all it did was make me miserable. As soon as they listened to me and let me lay on my right side, my blood pressure started to come down.

However, I didn’t get to see Todd for many hours because I was so sick. Jim kept reassuring me that Todd was doing great but finally about 4:00 in the morning the nurse took pity on me and actually snuck him out of the nursery so I could see for myself that he was small but just fine.

We went to Guadalajara for his birthday dinner. Good choice.

Todd and Michaela

Everything is moving along with the house. Not fast enough for me but we should have the dry wall done next Saturday and then hopefully things will move rapidly after that.

  7. Belated Happy Fathers Day and Happy birthday to Todd. Our kids grow up so quickly and now we're watching their kids grow. The circle of life, I guess.

  9. True love does not mean the sweet sounds appealing, vehemently eachother, gluey kiss hug. Love is a noble, beautiful and pure feelings should be sincere and faithful replace falsehood, mutual respect and mutual respect in order to replace the selfish self-interest, moral civilization replace rash action.

  12. Nice to see your home is getting put back together. Such a different floor so it will take a while to get use to. I like it. Hugs to the fur kids.

  13. Finally caught up reading your blog. Sorry to hear about little Scooter--I'm glad she is still able to enjoy life. Poor Skit's nose! Reminded me of Jack. Yellow Labs' noses turn pink in the cold. We used to call him "Pinky". Tell Jim to stay up on his feet--glad he wasn't hurt. Enjoyed traveling with you--I've been to all those places--brought back memories. Glad you everyone had a nice Fathers Day and that you got to see your high school buddies.
