Today is November 4th, 2014.
My dad would have been 84 years old today. I sure do miss him.
I think in honor of him this day I will…
Put on Misty by Erroll Garner and savor every note.
Take time out to visit Cooper Mountain to enjoy every breath.
Listen closely to every word spoken to me.
Wear a hat.
Swing a golf club.
Play more jazz.
Not let a song pass me by without letting it do to me.. what it is going to do to me.
Remember the good times.
Tap my finger to the songs I hear.
Read an article about Bill Elliot.
Dance along to a Beach Boys song (Like that one time you did.)
Walk down the street to where that manhole cover with GTE is on it and take a picture of it.
Go through the voter’s guide and draw an X over the faces of those I did not vote for.
Enjoy every breath.
Be confident that everything is going to be alright.
Tell my family I love them.
And that’s just for starters. I love you dad. I miss you very much.
