Seniorisms by LMW, I Didn't Finish In Time

Last week Sunday was Father's Day & this Tribute to My Dad should have been written then... I had to review many thoughts & memories before I could commit myself on paper...

I didn't remember him on his appropriate day, but he would have understood because I know in my heart I will never forget him... He & my Mom supported & cared for me from the day I was born & they adopted me when I was 4... He always called me his little slow poke, (I've never been very fast at anything!) If he only knew that I worked in the bindery department at Sir Speedy he would have gotten a kick out of that... He was better to me than many natural fathers are to their own... I have so many good memories of him when I was growing up...

We had a little chocolate Cocker Spaniel named Pudgy... Every night he would grab the leash & we would head for the door for pudgy's nightly walk. My Dad was 6'1” but when he thought I was getting tired he would bend his long & lanky frame to sit on the curb with me & let me rest...

I'll never forget the day he taught me how to ride my first bike... He was responsible for my first love affair... That was my love of bikes... When I was a youngster that was my freedom to explore my world & everything in it... Along with that it taught me a certain amount of responsibility for myself also... The first thing I did after I quit smoking was to save my money, buy a 10 speed, trained for distance & rode in the St. Pete Times 50 Mile Bicycle Tour to celebrate my 50th birthday... It took me 5 hours to complete, but I'm what they call a daisy picker in cyclist terms... I enjoyed the scenery all around me & I loved it... Thanks Dad, I'm forever Grateful to you!

About 7 years ago I was in a bike shop... I had always wanted a recumbent bike... I found one that some lady had placed there on consignment... It was a 3 wheeled, 3 speed with a large basket in the back... It was perfect for me! They said she wanted $250 for it... The salesman called her & asked her if she would accept $200... She agreed & the trike was mine... I gave up driving last year... It was time for me to be retested, both written & road... With my insurance rising every year, I decided it would be good exercise for me to use the trike instead, saving me quite a bit of money so this year I fixed it up for about $150... Brand new they are $1,000 so I figure it's a good investment... I do believe my Dad inspired me to be in the right place at the right time to find this trike...

I had invited my Mom & Dad for Thanksgiving dinner in 1974... I received a phone call the night before that they might not be able to make it because Dad wasn't feeling well... The next morning, Thanksgiving Day I received the call that Dad had passed away peacefully in his sleep... This was the call that absolutely broke my heart... He was My Hero! This was long before I had learned acceptance, so I had an extremely difficult time with this... I've finally learned acceptance & realize that the leading cause of death is birth... I'm ok with it now... Things he had difficulty explaining to me he would tell me, “Linda, someday you'll understand & he was right... To this day I am grateful that he was My Dad... If I had a way to reach him I would send this to him filled with hugs & kisses...

I miss you so Dad...
