But mostly our conversation was about the ventriloquist act Willie Tyler and Lester.
Didn't see that coming did ya??
I had just found out that our neighbor was Willie's twin brother. I KNEW my Dad would love to know that tidbit of information and called him right up...and yep he thought that was pretty cool.
We had the kind of relationship that always left nothing unsaid. We always ended each conversation with an I love you, and usually some sort of warning, like "now Amy remember that you don't want your gas tank to sit on Empty too long" or "I sure hope that you are ready for that BIG earthquake...it's coming soon you know"
I was most certainly Daddy's little girl.
So today I received some pictures from sister in law today that just caused me to smile real big.
My nephew had entered his first pinewood derby contest with the Boy Scouts. Thankfully for Tyler, a) my Dad passed down his love for wood working to his son and b) he isn't my son because I didn't get those genes.
Like Father Like Son Like Son (and daughter)
Yeah...Sister-In-Law has always been a BIG Steelers Fan
Yes Tyler, Grandpa Mike is very proud of you!!
Thanks Dad. (and to all those other Dads, both living and gone, for loving your kids so much, it really does make a difference in the next generation)
