HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAD

TODAY IS MY DAD'S 89TH BIRTHDAY. 89! WOW! AND HE'S STILL GOING STRONG. EVEN WITH ALZHEIMER'S. DAD HAS ALWAYS BEEN A STRONG MAN.....HE'S WORKED THROUGH JUST ABOUT ANYTHING THAT'S BEEN THROWN AT HIM. ONE THING THAT BROUGHT HIM DOWN WAS THE DAY HE WAS WORKING AT THE HOTEL AND AN ELEVATOR WAS NOT WORKING RIGHT. DAD WAS KIND OF AN ALL AROUND FIX IT GUY. SO HE GRABBED THE OUT OF ORDER SIGN FOR THE ELEVATOR AND PUT IT RIGHT ACROSS THE BUTTONS. THEN HE LOCKED OPEN THE DOORS AND PUT HIS LADDER RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE. THEN HE CLIMBED UP ON TOP TO LOOK AT THE CABLES AND WHAT NOTS TO SEE WHAT IF ANYTHING WAS WRONG UP THERE. ALL OF A SUDDEN HE REALISED THAT SOMEONE WAS IN THE ELEVATOR AND THAT THEY HAD OVER RODE THE LOCK ON THE DOOR. HE THOUGHT TO HIMSELF OK I'LL RIDE IT OUT. THEY WERE JUST GOING DOWN A FLOOR. ALL WAS GOING WELL UNTIL HIS HAMMER GOT CAUGHT BETWEEN THE WALL OF SHAFT AND MY DAD'S BACK. THIS WAS NOT GOOD. NOW WHEN THIS LITTLE INCIDENT HAPPENED MY MOM HAD GONE TO CALIFORNIA WITH MY DAD'S BROTHER TO VISIT HER MOM. I WAS HOME CARING FOR MY TWO SISTERS. WE HAD ALREADY HAD 2 INCIDENTS. THE FIRST WAS I WAS KNOCKING ON OUR KITCHEN WINDOW AT OUR DOG SOMETHING I'VE DONE A THOUSAND TIMES AS HAD MY MOM....BUT THIS TIME MY FIST WENT THROUGH THE WINDOW. I WASN'T HURT TO BAD. THEN MY HANDICAPPED SISTER HAD FALLEN OUT OF HER WHEELCHAIR AND BROKEN HER THUMB. THE DAY DAD HAD HIS ACCIDENT WAS THE DAY MY MOM WAS COMING HOME FROM CALIFORNIA BY BUS. NOW DAD USUALLY CALLED EVERY DAY AT THE SAME TIME. NOON. AND IF FOR SOME REASON I DIDN'T HEAR FROM HIM RIGHT AT NOON HE MADE SURE HE CALLED AT 1. THIS DAY I DIDN'T HEAR FROM HIM UNTIL AFTER 2 AND WHEN HE CALLED HE WAS OUT OF IT AND HE HAD TO ASK A NURSE WHERE WAS HE? THIS WAS ONE THING THAT KEPT DAD DOWN. THE REST OF THE STORY IS ALMOST AS BAD AS THE BEGINNING. BUT I WONT GO INTO IT. LETS JUST SAY DAD WORKED HIS WAY OUT OF THIS AND WAS AS STRONG AS EVER. SO EVEN THOUGH MY DAD DOESNT READ MY BLOG I STILL WANT TO SHARE WITH EVERYONE "HAPPY BIRTHDAY DADDY I LOVE YOU!"

p.s. check out the jackassery blog for a beautiful girl.
p.s.s. Well I got my new cell today. One of those razo ones. its pink.

I did not get pink cause Im a girl I got pink for breast awareness. Then my grandson and I had to return his phone I got him yesterday becasue it was defected. While we were getting it exchanged he found me a cover for my phone:

never hurts to have a little bling! its a pink cover with little sparkles all over it. Sorry pics are so bad!

Happy Birthday to your Dad. My Dad did not let much hold him down either. He refuses to let Alzheimer's get him down and out.

Nice looking phone there. That would not be you that I am getting reminder beeps for on my phone? I did not have it with me as it needed to be recharged and now I see I missed something. Better see...
