My “Daddy” died yesterday afternoon. Kind of an odd thing for me to post I know, but anyone that has “followed” me on Lumberjocks knows I wrote of him all the time. It’s his backyard that I was turned on to Apricot wood and have written about that wood here quite a bit. Along with his Lemon tree and Pomegranate tree and the beautiful wood from that. Several of my projects were made from these woods.
I made a “Manure Occureth” sign for him and wrote the story about it here. It’s sort of funny too as I was so worried I would get into trouble here on LJ’S for posting the words “Manure Occureth” I have to laugh now thinking about how I tip-toed around on that one. LOL!!!
Along with a frame for my Moms picture in the military here
And there was the “Grinning Gator” for my daddy here.
What I am getting at is my Daddy always had a way with his jokes and humor, and a way of encouraging me to”think outside of the box.”
Thanks for letting me share this personal news with you all.
Along with his death goes the house I grew up in my entire life. I am actually going to miss that also. There will be no more reason for me to ever go back to the town I grew up in and the whole thing is so terribly sad for me. I realize death is a part of life, and I will get through this. I also know I have a long and emotional road to travel this next week
I had always told him about LJ’s and showed him a couple times when I was down there visiting the projects I made that are in his house or out front of his house etc. He always got such a kick out of it.
