Happy Birthday Dad!

Today my dad would have 64…

In my late teen, early adult years my dad and I had a thing…it was just something that went on between the two of us.  I don’t remember who started it, but we had so much fun doing it.  Every year on our birthdays and on Christmas, we would give each other a goofy, silly, funny,  gift.  I remember buying him a viking hat with horns, a beanie with a propeller, a pair of glow in the dark boxer shorts for Halloween, a pair of howling wolf slippers, a pair of rainbow suspenders, a Jack-0-lantern shirt…you get the drift?  I can’t remember a lot of the gifts he gave me, but here are a few…an electric dish cloth, a parrot alarm clock that squawked and flapped it’s wings and said “Rawt, Wake up, Wake up, Rawt, Wake up!”…that thing annoyed everyone that came in contact with it, but I loved it.  Wish I could remember some of the other gifts he gave me,  maybe later.   Anyway, thought I’d share some pictures of some of his funny gifts.

Thought I had more downloaded, but I don’t.


Happy Birthday Dad!  We love and miss you very much!
