Today is Day 18 of the March Slice of Life – the daily writing challenge hosted at “Two Writing Teachers.”
Today is also my Dad’s birthday – he would have been 93. He died in 1972, at age 49.
This morning , so many memories played in my head:
-standing for hours flooding our backyard rink with a hose, wearing his long navy coat and fur hat
-playing with our boxers, throwing a stick
-reading, always reading
-meeting me in a walkway near our house when I was late for supper and not saying a word as I followed him home – 13 was a cray year!
I so regret my kids never knew him, but they know of him. I can see some of him in each of them.
Today is a day I usually do some artwork and I drew his face:
as well as an art tag (part of my 366 art tag challenge)
Happy birthday Dad!
