I miss my Pop

My dad could out-weld your dad and he could nap longer in a boat floating down the Warrior River. 
He also holds the world record for longest string of profanity uttered while working on a car. He was an artist when it came to putting together interesting combinations of cuss words. 
Farm animals, common hand tools, and body parts were all part of his cussing palette.
I miss my Pop.


  1. It's good to remember our dad on Father's day.
    Hugs, Julia

  2. Isn't it strange the things we remember with love? Enjoy the memories.

  3. Of course. Gone but never forgotten.

  4. Interesting the things we remember about our fathers...your's has a different twist to it for sure. My own dad loved to work and if he couldn't work he wasn't happy.

  5. Short and sweet! Great little write up on your dad.

  6. I am sure you will forever miss him

  7. Hubby and I have discussed which one of us had the cussingest dad. I swear they did make up their own words. But they did right by us and that's what matters.

  8. Even with just a few words I can imagine your Dad and his way of life. Probably because my Dad was similar. I picture him under the hood of the car or under the sink fixing a leak, or under the name it he could cuss it out! Never the less..he, like your Dad, was wonderful. Nice tribute Rick!

    A short but beautiful tribute!!

  10. Everyone knows MOM's are special. But boys know that DADs sorta write the book.

  11. I love this post because it shows your dad as a real person and a character I wish I would have met. I have a very fond memory of my dad dropping F bombs every 2 seconds not realizing I was behind him. When he finally got the hint to look over his shoulder, the various shades of red and his stuttering just made me Amalie from ear to ear.

  12. Heart-felt post....
    Gentle hugs to you,
