Back from Dinner with Daddy and Jane
I just got back from dinner with my dad and his wife. We went to a wonderful seafood restaurant my friend Wendy suggested on the St. John's River, "Singletons". We sat out on the river and watched the most magnificent sunrise, wish I'd brought my camera, the colors were rich. It was great seeing my dad, I havn't seen him since Christmas. We all really enjoyed ourselves. My dad is a great storyteller, he's gets all excited and his eyes light up, just like when I was a little kid. We've just recently been connecting more in the last year. Well not a lot, but we do talk on the phone, and it's always good when I see him. Man am I full. I got Daddy talking about Papa and Mema, which I always enjoy stories about them, and even sometimes when things jar my memory. I don't want to appreciate things more when they are gone. I'm thankful for the time I got to spend with my dad tonight. I'm glad he is still in my life.
