Day 286: My Pops

This is my dad in his natural and entirely happy habitat.
I think my dad had a good Christmas. You know, how I know? He didn’t go back to bed. He loves naps buuuuuut…

We got him Non-alcoholic beer and a big book of sudoku puzzles. He is sporting his favorite causual wear–his bath robe.

You may think I’m joking but he was tickled with his Xmas presents. He sat and enjoyed his NA beer, sudoku and after a bit some decaf coffee.

He is a strange kid, but I love him anyway.

Day Thirty-Seven: Abominable

Clearing the Walk

There are several pictures of my father which I hold so dear to my heart. This is a camera phone snapshot of my dad shoveling the snow off of his sidewalk.

This picture really sums up my father. Genius, eccentric and passionate when he sets his mind to something. I see so much of my biological characteristics and personality traits rooted in this man.

Too bad I wasn’t in Salt Lake City at the same parade to see my dad walk on his hands and win my mother’s heart. My parents were and are pretty cool.

Not everyone can get away with clearing snow off their sidewalk in the middle of the afternoon in only house slippers and a bathrobe.

Keep it real, old hippie.
