To all you Fathers out there, Happy Father's Day. You have no idea how much influence you have on your children. Keep up the good work.
Normally this would be where I share a happy childhood memory of my father, but, my dad was a jackass. So instead of remembering him, I'll honor Pa, Oliver's grandfather who has adopted Tallulah, me & Bean.
Pa smokes and drinks and cusses. He likes to look at boobs and has taken Oliver to Hooters. He collects Easter Peeps and keeps them for years.
All of these things crack me up.
He can fix anything that's broken (even a spirit) and knows everything about everything. He cooks like nobody's business.
He's kind and generous and loving and strong, and he's someone that I wish had really been my father, and I'm so grateful to have been adopted by him.
He & Bean are kindred spirits, and I hope that Oliver & Tallulah know how lucky they are to have these two great men in their lives.
