A little winding but such a good read.. Funny to look back on the antics of our life and see the blessing we never understood at the time.
I thought this was great! Light hearted and well told. A wonderful picture of a man who was true and unbending, but obviously approachable and lovable. I'd be he also had a sense of humor, else you wouldn't be so light-hearted in describing his lead foot. I'll bet your family had many a laugh over stories told at years and years of holiday dinners.
Great little pictures here. I enjoyed these two aspects of your father's personality so nicely woven together. A good read!
Marilyn, I just love your character studies, here, both of your little-girl narrator and of the "three out of four" doctor dad. You are giving us genuine people, not plastic saints, which I find so refreshing and delightful. Thank you for your comment on my "Guardian Angels" story, too. I appreciate you!
