My dad is a really funny guy. For those that know him outside of my family, he is a real jokester. Then again, I think people within our family think the same thing. My dad was famous for playing jokes on us kids like "here, have a bite of my ice cream" and then it turned out to be sour cream. Or "have a drink of my sprite" and it turned out to be alka-seltzer. How about the time he promised to give me a whole dollar if I ate a jalapeno pepper.....sooooo not worth that dollar...... and I learned that milk is the only thing that cools off a burning tongue. He also liked to sneak into the bathroom while we showered and dump a huge glass of ice water over the top of the shower curtain.....that made for some pretty loud screams. I could go on and on. He still tries to get away with telling stories....but after 30 years of it......we are onto you now Dad!
Life has never been dull with you and I am grateful for the lessons you have taught me and the love that you still give to me. I love you very much Dad. Happy Birthday.
