I want to say happy birthday to you.

I know it’s been awhile.

I still dream of you.

Change of topic – non-haiku.

I have been listening to some old cds as I scan in old  pictures.  Fun, but it does take a bit of time.  I found in my stash of cds one by Tom Russell, it is The Man From God Knows Where.  It is a series of songs about immigrants to the U.S., mostly Irish and Scandinavian.  It is worth a listen.

My great-great grand parents came from Ireland in 1854, running from the potato famine.  Another set of great, … grand parents came from England in the late 1700s.

I know this makes me a WASP – if anyone still uses that term.  However, we (or most of our families were immigrants at some point.  Remember this and show kindness to this eras immigrants.

June 17 – Father’s Day

Father’s or Fathers’ Day
I’m not a father, so does it matter?
Let’s move on now.

Just kidding folks.  It is a great day to celebrate all of the fathers in our lives.

Miss you Dad – Charles Richard Hudgins.  I remember you quiet ways and a red heart box filled with M&M you gave me for Valentines day when I was 6.

Miss you Tom! – Tom Hollearin.  Tom took on the heavy load of raising 3 kids, 2 months after marrying my mom when she died.  Thank you! Thank you!
