Happy Father’s Day, Dad!

Sorry that this is a few days late; Mrs. Davenport’s death still has me feeling pretty low. I sent a sympathy card to the family yesterday, that pretty much finalized everything. Mrs. Brown sent me funeral arrangements, but funerals are still limited to family only in Pennsylvania and Pottstown is a bit of a hike.

Also, I wanted to take a few days to celebrate dad; spend time with him and mom, and do things together as a family. Putting blogs and social media aside is the best way to spend time with friends and family.

When dad got up on Sunday morning, he saw the big Mickey bag that was waiting for him.


I was still asleep, but I’m sure he was almost like a small child , he tossed the paper out of the bag and pulled out his gifts: PJs, a frame, and a kosher chocolate bar. When I woke up on Sunday, I said good morning and wished him a Happy Father’s Day. He gave me a big hug and kiss, thanked me and agreed to some photos with two of his gifts.

We relaxed on Sunday and for dinner, mom made us prime rib. The perfect meal for a wonderful man that does so much for us. I made collard greens and we both enjoyed the greens with the meat.


I’m so thankful for my dad and all that he does for me. I’m daddy’s little girl and even at almost 31, I will always be daddy’s girl.

One thought on “Happy Father’s Day, Dad!”

  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    I’m all verklempt, dear friend!

    It makes me happy that you were willing to set aside the social media sharing for a spell and focus on bonding with your folks. It was the right thing to do. Looks like you and your mother treated your dad like a king on Father’s Day. It must have seemed to him like Christmas morning when he found that Mickey bag filled with presents. And your mom went all out making prime rib! It does my heart good to see the smiles on the faces. I’m so glad your father gave his girl a big hug and kiss to show his appreciation.

    I am also verklempt after watching that video of The Temptations doing “My Girl.” It shows the Motown super group at or near their peak. Sadly, only one of those men is still alive, namely Otis Williams who is one of the founders. I believe this performance took place on DJ Robin Seymour’s teen dance TV show which was broadcast in the Detroit and Windsor, Ontario market.

    Enjoy the rest of your week, dear friend JM!
