The Pops that Rocks

Yesterday marked another birthday for my pops. Happy Birthday P2!
Although he's known life without me, I've never known life without him and for this, I'm grateful. He is the type of man that teaches by example and when necessary, uses words.

A fond memory I have is watching Star Trek with him. I know, I know, we were dorks. What makes me even sillier is that anytime my dad called from work and I happened to answer, I would give the phone to Mama Mia and say, "It's Captain Picard - for you." Oh yes, I am that dork.

Growing up, people would tell me I looked like P2.

Really???

...I did have similar eyebrows before I discovered tweezers. Is that what they were referring to?
Hmm...maybe we are related. P2! Are those your fingers making bunny ears? Seriously, some people! I would never do that. *ahem.

P2, the past 28 years of my life have been great with you as my dad. Here's to at least 28 more birthdays to come! Love ya!

Hey Charlotte, my sister just told me to read your blog. It makes for some great reading. Especially when I need a laugh. But I must say, the best memory I have of you is when Doug and I (mostly Doug) gave you spoon fulls of peanut butter when your mom was out of the room. We didn't give you anything to drink either. I guess that is what cousins are for...to tease and laugh at you. You are great. By the way, I see a lot of Doug in your dad. And a lot of your dad in my mom!
