I know I’m blessed to have my dad. He has been a good husband to my mom and a nurturing, patient father. He has not abused his wife, kids, alcohol, or drugs. He is a down to earth guy, whether he’s helping me bathe skunked dogs, enjoying a burger as we watch a Raiders game, or commenting on the latest installment of my fave reality show(his insights into I love NY were priceless). Pop turned 61 today but he’s funny and easygoing as ever. I’m grateful to and for him.
