    On a personal note I'm quite sure this will be my last Fathers day with pops.

    He just turned 80 and is not looking too well, also the stupid weigh machine keeps saying he's losing weight. Not good for 80 y/olds.

    Sorry for bringing this (so far) scintillating thread to a grinding halt.

    Yeah, me too. Working kind of put a halt to that. But my weekends are mostly free...so there's that. :hug:

    Indeed.

    He came to my house earlier tonight and helped me solve a break bleeding problem I have been fighting for like three weeks!

    Love my Pops.

    That's the American Dream in this new world, getting weekends off.

    Thanks Wall Street. ;]

    Mine died the day before his 57th birthday. Liver cancer. We didn't have the best relationship, as I'm sure you've read, but we got along okay. So I'm glad you get to have moments like that with him.

    I really only work 4 days a week, so it's not that stressful, especially working the 10-2 am shift. Not many people come in.

    He was a drunk who was unpredictable. Some nights he would be funny as hell, but there were other nights you didn't want to be around him. He was really into music (Beatles were his favorite band). Whe was into muscle cars, and apparently grew weed in his garage before he moved after my mom died. He was a Journeyman Millwright, according to his death certificate. I don't know much else, because he was a very private man.
