I'm Off To See The Wizened

My father turned 80 on the 27th of February - Go Dad!

I'll be jetting off to see him from Friday to Sunday (sorry Pop, longer term love comes at a premium).

I will try to exercise a modicum of restraint when dealing with relatives who will be joining in the fun.

Dale,
you have to interact with the other members of your family. Those are some of your best stories. Geez, talk about self-centered!

Grr, I hate typos, so let's try this again...

I hope your Dad had a great birthday celebration, and that you took lots of catty notes about the rest of the family to relate to us when you return.

Happy Birthday to your pa. My dad turns 80 in twelve years, so I hope to find out what you're going through first hand then.

Hope you enjoy your time at home.

Hope you're planning to drink nonstop.

Happy birthday, Daddio!

My mama turned seventy last month, BTW, and she keeps asking where her card is.

Happy Birthday to your dad! Restraint is for sissies. I say have a great time at someone elses' expense.

You are such a good son. Now get down & over to Palatine and help me take care of my parents for a week. I should be about 3 years old when I return to my home. How old will you be?

chelene said...

Happy birthday to your dad, Dale. Have fun and keep copious notes on all the doings. :)

Dr.evil said...

No offense Dale but if you are even half that age of your dad I will consider old.

Old Lady said...

Have a safe trip and maintain that force field.

We'll be here for your therapy when you return.

Have I told all of you lately that I love you? No? Well, maybe next time. Okay, this time.
