They come in all shapes and sizes, different temperments, different hobbies. Although our Dad never gave us horsey-back-rides, he had a great imagination and was great at making things for us to play with. He actually made us a merry-go-round and a sliding board when we were kids, our sandbox was really a big old wooden row boat. And he made doll furniture, such beautiful doll furniture. He wasn't a huggy-kissy kind of Dad, didn't like physical gestures of love, but we knew he loved us. Funny, you pick and choose the parts of your parents habits and personalities that you want to be a part of who you are. My mother was always so crabby in the morning...no talking to her until she had a truck load of coffee in her. But good old Dad, he would come down the stairs in the morning and give her a loud "Good morning apple pie dumpling", with a big smile on his face, just to get her goat (and believe me...it got her goat.) Anyway, I decided at an early age, I was going to be like my father in the morning, ready for the day and not crabby!!! We miss both our parents dearly, so be sure to make lots of good memories and give Dad a real big hug and kiss on Father's Day...whether he is a huggy-kissy kind of dad or not!!
