Thankful: 3

I’m so very thankful for my Daddy. This is a photo of us from two birthdays ago, when I made him a chocolate spelt cake with peanut butter frosting. We have a weird and cute and close relationship, and he’s taught me so much about so many things: finance, survival, guns, livestock, drinking, sports, literature, politics, humor and storytelling. This week he came to town in the afternoon and met my coworkers at the library, and then we went out for a cocktail and fancy dinner just because it was a Monday night. This weekend I’m going home to see my family, and Daddy promised — if the weather permits — that we’d burn a brush pile. This is just one example of the mundane things that we like to do together, and because we’re together it makes them all the more special.

  1. Your Dad is a pretty good guy and I’m glad I’ve known him all these years. I know he’s quite proud of you. I really miss being able to drop in the bank and visit with him like I did so often when we both were in GF.
