Once my best friend came over to visit, we had to be like in the 6th grade, and she was walking around barefoot. My Father was in the living room watching TV and as she entered the room he said "Come in ..one whose foot stretches across the floor". Like always my mother cracked up and Lauren never walked around my house barefoot again. I remember her saying "but my feet aren't even big" . Ten years later he would give her her first job. That was him in a nutshell... crack on you hard, but do whatever he could for you.
In a mad dash, after a rough day, rough weekend, I want to celebrate my Dad too.
