10-10-10 Happy Birthday Dad!

Today would have been my Dad's 88th birthday. He loved a party and I know he would have had a great time celebrating on 10-10-10. He would have worn a paper party hat, played cards, and had a large serving of cake and ice cream (butter pecan was his favorite.)

I'm glad I was able to spend a small amount of time with my dad before he passed.

I'm grateful I was able to write my dad's obituary.

My dad was a coupon clipper and rebater. He stretched his money farther than anyone I've ever heard of. Without realizing it at the time, my after work shopping was sort of a tribute to him. I bought two large tuna pouches, and two Bumble Bee tuna sensations lunch packs for seventy one cents. Thanks Dad.


  1. We partied with my husband's sister today. She turned 85; she was born 10-10-25 and they talked a lot about how it snowed that day!

    Making joyful memories to be recalled in days to come is critical to our well being...thanks for sharing yours. I think you miss your dad as much as I miss mine.

  2. Connie, I'm so happy to hear of your celebration. Did you drink your punch while listening to Harry James 78's?

    I was born during a snow storm too.
