They Grow Up So Fast - Roger Report

It seems like only yesterday that we saw Roger's little head peaking out over the edge of the nest.  Already, he is flying!  Roger seems to have good ground speed - it is the law of gravity that confounds him.  Today he made it to the top of the fence!  He is still hanging pretty close to home - in the flower bed, on the porch bench.  His parent's watched over him very closely - we have not seen them today.  Maybe he is really on his own now!

We have a new baby!

No, not me.  Not a new grandbaby.  We have a new baby bird.  Mama and Papa Dove have been sitting on the nest for weeks.  Finally, today I see the little baby's head!  We are so excited!  His name is Roger.

Happy Father's Day

I will always be Daddy's girl.  It doesn't matter how old I get, or that Daddy has been gone for 35 years.  His influence lives on.  He was funny, fun, patient and kind.  He loved having me around - whether we were watching TV (which he didn't like to do much) or gapping the spark plugs on his car - we just hung out.  So many memories and all good - listening to the Indy 500 on the old radio; making fig preserves; 4 mile morning walks; baking bread; lunch at the Petroleum Club; learning to dance (he was very good); trips; washing cars on Saturday; church on Sunday - so many more.

Most important of all is the legacy of how he showed me the love of the Heavenly Father!  And some day we will be together in His presence.
