Much to Celebrate

Here are my folks on their wedding day.  Juanita Shutters and George Crowther united in matrimony.

Sunday - I wish my dad a very Happy Father's Day

Tuesday - I shall remember my mom's birthday.  She passed in 1992 at the age of 60.

I'll be spending Sunday in Texas. Still healing from my toe surgery, I'm not flying up to PA to hang with Dad. My sister shall treat him to lunch and then stay for a few days to trim bushes, put down mulch, and have some laughs. He's not doing the greatest right now. A bad 2015 has continued into 2016 with assorted medical issues. But he's still in his original home, still drives a bit, and he's up on current events.

I'll think about my mom on Tuesday. She liked chocolate, reading, and worked hard. She kept track of my brother, sister, and me with an eagle eye and taught us right and wrong.

Two good people to celebrate here in June - my mom and dad

    1. He has been "young" for so long and now he's his full 84 and it is frustrating.

  5. That's a sweet post. My parents were also from Pennsylvania. They are both gone now but it is always good to remember them.
