I won't be blogging much in June.
There's a good reason.
This Saturday, the 9th is (would have been? Was?) my Dad's birthday. He would have been 72.
Next Sunday - my first Father's Day without my Dad.
Saturday the 23rd - My Mom's birthday, her first without my Dad.
I can barely get out of bed in the morning, much less write anything entertaining.
That whole "time makes it better" thing? Bull shit.
So I think it best to spare you my misery and just not post. I'll be around, commenting here and there.
But I don't really feel like writing a bunch of posts about him.
I am SO glad that last year for Father's day, I did write a post about/for my Dad. I also posted it on teh FB, so he was able to read it.
I remember I asked him if he read it. I gave me a little half smile, and there was a questioning look in his eyes. He said "Yep. I read it. Very nice, Von."
I wonder if he was trying to tell me something. I feel now like he knew that I knew that something wasn't quite right, even then, in June.
So just do me a favor - that person that you love most above all others? Tell them so.
