Today is Father's Day. This year it is bitter-sweet.
The bitter part is that my dad passed away in March and I miss him. He was a great dad. He had a wicked sense of humor, was a great outdoorsman, and loved his family. I grew up listening to "Bean and the Jackstock", being called Udlick (quite the nickname), and hearing boy scout songs ALL the time. He was a dad who loved all of my bring-home pets - tarantulas, horn toads, puppies, frogs to name a few. He loved my mom and all of us. I miss him.
The sweet part is that I am married to PoppaH. He is a great dad. He has a wicked sense of humor, is a brilliant scientist, and loves his family. My kids have grown up listening to Harry Potter, being called many funny names, and hearing classical music ALL the time. He is a dad who loves our pets. He loves me and all of his kids. I love him.
