Life is a Palindrome- 2012

RIP PopPop

9-2-9

“If parents had anything to do with it; we’d be speaking with your Grandfather’s accent.”

“We are just dumb kids, raising dumb kids”

“This is going to be my last birthday, well not my last birthday but the last one we’re going to celebrate; 75 is enough, I don’t need to be reminded of growing old”

I know Dad’s birthday was in October, I know this because he became argumentative & depressed in October. No happy cake, hunting trip, leaf raking, Halloween decorating or football game watching tradition. I did get to understand that it was best to buy him a boomerang gift; he never wore a sweater or tie I got him, but I did. Good God did he hate aging and it wasn’t like he could no longer play scratch golf or chop down a tree.

I know we’re coming up on the anniversary of his passing; there was the Woman’s US Open playing on the jumbotron at 27th & 6th.
