Father's Day 2006

I've been looking for a sign
"This exit off the Lost Highway"
I'm half asleep and veerin' toward the line
The radio is playin' Elvis' "My Way"

I remember what my daddy would do
Cold steel in his eyes of blue
Not a word while carryin' the weight
I only hope I didn't learn too late

Oh, can you tell me do you know
How to get from here to Victory Road?
Is there a tunnel to the end of the rainbow?
Can I get from here to Victory Road?

M/Sgt Kevin Trainor, USAF (Ret.), b. 9/3/1932 d. 12/8/2000
He set an example we couldn't always follow; instead, we went places with people he would never have wasted time on.
Still, he was always there for us, because that's part of what being a father is all about.

If nothing else, this has taught me to avoid the laundromat on Father's Day. They have WLTE for muzak there, and the DJ was playing lots of weepy dedications, so I left in a pretty maudlin mood.

I hadn't really taken in that yesterday was Father's Day (when Scott --the Rev. at Grace Trinity-- gave me the readings for the service earlier this week, I tried to see how they applied to "FD", and it did come up in the service, but other than that, it was sort of out of sight, out of mind...)

Oh Dammit All!! I was thinking that I should'a e-mail Uncle John to see how his Sunday School class went (he was a bit nervous about it), and then I remembered that my cousin had cut off ties with him because of his remarriage, and that he could have used an e-mail or a card...

Now I feel like a rotten son...

Did I tell you (I'm sure I must have) that he's going to be up here next month when I officially "jump the hoop" and join the church?

You did mention that, yes.
