Saturday, dad and I traded songs via youtube. He showed me who put the overalls in mrs ___ chowder. We also listened to Nellie Jack and my blue heaven. Dad talked about how his dad would come out of his bedroom dancing and singing these two songs. My dad was emotional as he remembered this. He said Grandpa must have been a romantic. Other men didn’t want to get married, but he always wanted a family. Dad said he did too.
I replied that’s what I always wanted as well.
What a gift my father gave to me. To share and to be vulnerable. And to be emotional.
