My Dad worked hard but was a fun loving man. Remember when my dad worked 4 pm to midnight shift. I was 8 at the time. I put our dogs left over can food in a dish and into the fridge. In the morning at breakfast my mom asked what happened to the dog food Dave put in the fridge? My Dad said Dog food? I thought it was canned hash and ate it fried with my eggs. I was laughing and Dad said what's so funny it was very good. Then all 5 of our family members bought Dad canned dog food for his birthday as a joke. Was a funny and happy birthday for Dad. Now he has been gone many years but I will always remember this time and the Love he had for his kids and wife.

Another funny thing Dad did. We all were taking a local bus home from a movie night as a family. A lady said hello to my Dad and he said do I know you. She said yes I work as a nurse where you are the maintenance man. Oh he said (she was not in her nurses outfit), so he said I did not recognize you with clothes on. The look on our Mom's face made us laugh for a long time. Dad never understood what he said that was so funny.
