My Daddy Has Died

Daddy left this world Friday, July 1st at 11:46 am. He had a stroke on Sunday and was in the Lourdes Hospital ICU until he passed. He was always so active. He was an avid organic gardener and loved his tomato plants. He adored spaghetti westerns. Clint Eastwood was his hero. He loved good movies. I remember being in 7th grade? and going to the theater to just pick a new movie to watch and we both decided on ET. It was so cool. We always watched the latest James Bond movie. My mom hated the loud acoustics, so, I was his partner in crime for every new 007. He will be missed so very much. His laugh, his love of jokes and talking about the Sunday comics he found hilarious. He had so much energy and would give the shirt off of his back for anyone in need. He loved the love of his life, Sherleen, his wife of 65 years. They met on a blind date. He was 20, she was 19 and it was love at first sight. They were always together and were soulmates thru and thru. My dad was old school. He hated passwords and facetime, but he loved playing minesweeper. He was bonafide salt of the earth, French speaking Catholic Cajun. He was and is the most honest, honorable, loving, giving, God-fearing man I’ve ever had the honor to know and love. I am so blessed that he was the man I called Father.

Dream I had…

I was halfway asleep this early morning and saw our gate. He was standing there staring. Not happy, nor sad, just staring at me SEEING me as I was.

A coward. A child. A fool. Way too spoiled and too sad in my own self-centered grief.

His eyes spoke volumes.

He saw me letting my mother down.

I saw his sadness at my own selfishness and it made me see my soul for a millisecond and it made me ashamed within my own skin.

Blueprints for Mind Control

An alarming, fascinating,eye-opening article.

We live in an alternate reality depending upon how much media we inhale and imprint upon our psyche. We allow the opinions and beliefs of manipulators and obfuscaters to dictate the type of world we live in.

A Charlie Brown Christmas

I love Christmas. All things Christmas.

Especially the holiday tv classics only whipped out during Christmastime. In a time of instant gratification there’s something soothing and pure about things predictable and rare.

That said, I’m also a sucker for favorite movies. The kind that never get old. Like Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, Jaws, Aliens, Signs, Die Hard, ad nauseam. Just great movies with awesome acting and unforgettable scenes.

When in a funk I binge watch comforting shows like Andy Griffith or Young Sheldon, things I’ve taped( dvr’d) ahead of time for just such known will be in a funk occasions.

Every Christmas, it never fails, I manage to tape A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving (yippee)!

but NEVER A Charlie Brown Christmas (boo)!

I always delete them in January or February because it ruins it if they are available year round.

My point is, I’m trying to find where I can DVR A Charlie Brown Christmas.
