Obviously today is not Father's Day. But Dad is continuing his drive up to Canada from Florida (961 km yesterday he proudly told me in an email last night) today with his fiancee, Sandy, so I guess he's on my mind. Sandy has driven this route before. Dad hasn't. I'll be glad when they arrive safely home tomorrow evening as expected, especially since Dad sent another email asking if I could make a doctor's appointment for him asap as his chest congestion is getting worse.
This blog is short--for a few reasons: I spent a lot of time with a friend today. I have to start my midnight shift soon and I want to have some sleep before I go. I already lost this text once in trying to publish it! Arrgghh!
After my shift is over tomorrow morning, I'm going to buy some flowers and leave them at Dad's to welcome him and Sandy. And today I picked up a shirt for his wedding that he had had altered. The shirt had been ready since January and he doesn't think I've picked it up so that will be a surprise, too.
I'm ending with a published poem that I wrote several years ago. I hope you enjoy it. (and I hope this post publishes properly this time!)
