R I P

My 94 year old dad passed away July 22, 2014.
I was his caregiver for over 9 years.
I miss his smile, his singing and 
most important his love.
WE were best friends.
This is not a goodbye but
TILL WE MEET AGAIN.

Danny Loves To Read


 Danny burst to the kitchen. "I got to go, mom."
"Where are you going, son?"
"I'm off to the library," Danny replied.
"They have the summer reading program."
Danny's eyes lit up as soon he walked in.
He is greeted by the librarian in the children section.
"I'm looking for a great book," Danny declared.
Ms. Dean directed Danny over to the picture book area.
Danny searched shelf after shelf for a special book.
Buddy came along carrying a handful of books.
"Check out the fairy tale section," said Buddy.
"You'll find some classics."
"Great books indeed," Danny said.
"But I am looking for a book to inspire me."
Danny walked over to the next aisle.
Cathy strolled by carrying a bag full of books.
"You should get a Dr. Seuss book."
"They are great books indeed," Danny said.
"But I am looking for something that is inspirational."
Danny scanned the non-fiction area.
Wally stood nearby with his stack of books.
"You should get a book on sharks," Wally suggested.
"Great idea," Danny agreed.
"But I need a book to enlighten me."
Danny continued to search every aisle.
Pete walked past carrying a cart full of books.
"Try the poetry section," Pete suggested.
"A great selection to choose from."
"All the poem books are great," Danny admitted.
"But I need a book that will motivate me."
Danny decided to check out the new release section.
"There it is!" Danny announced.
"The book I want to read."
It's Henry's new book, "BUDDY'S FUN DAY"
