Dear Friends,

I am really excited because my Dad is coming to visit for two weeks. My Dad lives in Florida and I am here in California. We just don't get to see each other very often. Since my husband has a few weeks of traveling coming up I asked my Dad if he wanted to come and keep me company. I have a wonderful relationship with my Dad, he is my best friend. We lost my Mother 27 years ago. He will be able to meet Skye which I know he will enjoy. We will most likely have a visit or two to a casino, and he will go to bowling with me to cheer me on! It will also be wonderful for him to see my kids, his grandchildren, because they too don't get to see him very often. A few years ago my Dad was here in California about every other month helping his sister after the death of her husband. Since she passed in February of '08 he hasn't been back for a visit. I saw him last October when I celebrated my birthday in Florida with him. So like I said I am really excited.

I normally spend about six hours a day reading blogs and making comments. So while my Dad is here I will not be around as much so don't forget about me. I will be trying to do as much reading and commenting as I can but I know that you understand that the time with my Dad is very precious. (he turned 86 in June) So if I'm not leaving you comments you know where I am. If there is something that I need to know, important news, please email me at dpucci9972@gmail.com because I don't want to be left out of the loop.

Sincerely,

Debby

Hi there, this is my first visit to your blog and what a treat your post was for my first reading.

I loved reading about how excited you are to have your Dad spend time with you, it literally bought a little tear to my eye, really it did. No matter how old we get Daddy time is so important.

Have a lovely time with him whilst I take some time to read some more of your posts.

Have a blessed time together:)

MY FATHER THAT ADOPTED ME IS 83 AND HE HAS ALZEIMERS AND ITS HARD TO NOT SEE HIM BECAUSE NOW THAT HE DOESNT KNOW WHO I AM WHEN I WOULD VISIT IT MADE HIM VERY UNCOMFORTABLE BECAUSE HE COULDNT FIGURE OUT WHO THE STRANGERS WERE SO I WRITE HIM LETTERS AND MISS HIM. I THINK YOU ARE VERY LUCKY!

You have a great time with your Dad. I know what you mean about not being able to leave comments - ever since I arrived for my month long "vacation" in Michigan I've been running around like a mad woman. I've got a few thousand unread blog posts right now and I think I'm going to have just click on the "mark all as read" button just so I can move forward from here.

Really, have a great time with your Dad and don't worry a bit about blogland. If people can't understand that you took a week or two off, then they just weren't meant to be a part of your network.
