You guys didn't think I would forget about my dad, did you?  I bragged on my mom for Mother's Day, and now I'm gonna brag on my dad  for Father's Day (a few days late).

  • My dad is the hardest worker I know.  I definitely did NOT learn to procrastinate from him.  I don't think he's ever slept past 7 am in his life (another trait I didn't inherit) because there is always something for him to do.  He will always help you out if you need a hand, no matter what time of day it is.  He's the least selfish person I know.
  • Dad's really patient.  I can probably count the times I've heard him yell on one hand.
  • He's smart.  He can pretty much answer any question about that power plant he's been working at for so long, which is pretty dang impressive because that's not a small operation they've got going on.  He also knows a lot about the church, which is also impressive, because the church isn't a small operation either.
  • My dad is funny.  Most people think he's quiet and serious all the time.  He's not.  Once you get him telling stories, you'll never want him to stop.
  • Dad's a cowboy.  A real cowboy.  And that is cool.
  • He would do anything for his family.  Anything.
  • He's talented.  He can tie any knot (because he's an Eagle Scout) and pitch a knuckle ball (because he was an awesome pitcher back in his high school baseball days).
  • He's caring.  
  • He always puts others' needs before his own.
  • He's never late.
  • He's supportive.
  • He's helpful.
  • He's a family man.  I'm pretty sure most of the grand kids (ok, the kids too) have him wrapped around their fingers.  But that's just because he loves us so much and we love him so much.

Back in my EAC days.  Don't hate on the ugly dress.
Dad & all the girls back when Tera and Emmaree were just little toots.
My dad is the guy I compared potential husbands to.  If the guy I liked didn't have a lot of the qualities my dad has, he was pretty much out of the running. 

I love you very very much dad! I hope you had a wonderful Father's Day!
Little Ash
