FATHER, DAD, DADDY, POPS
In the immortal words of Dad, Lets eat! Dad was beyond a magician, no one could make a double bacon cheeseburger disappear like pops. Dad pulled favors and advice out of his top hat his whole life and never expected anything in return but your appreciation. The love that Daddy Fish gave was no illusion, and his freindship and the humor he shared was without merit. Dad made bills and bullies disappear and he was the sun that enlightened our gray skies. Daddy Fish could make problems disappear and was also pro at making golf balls disappear off into the distance. If you nero associated people with a Steak n Shake Steak Burger. Some people in life are the pickles, some are tomatos, and some the cheese. If the joy in life were considered the beef, Dad was levels above the meat and bun that holds it all together. Dad was the entire menu, restaurant and towering marquee sign out front to attract customers. Dad could light up a room like Johnny Carson and lucky us. Growing up, we never had to wait for 10:30 pm after news, sports and weather for raw, uncut, unedited comedy entertainment. The Daddy Bob Show was on all the time in our house. Daddy Fish will always be the star of the show around here and a hard act to follow.
DADS GOLD RING
I always admired Dads gold initial ring since I was a little boy. Dad wore it on his pinky finger since I can remember. The first time I tried it on my fingers were so small, I could fit two fingers thru it. Mom had it made especially for Dad when they were married with his initials RF set in tiny diamonds. Dad said to me Son, when I die someday, this will be your ring. I replied Well, we dont have to worry about that Dad, that is going to be in a very long time.
