Bi-Centennial baby..

When you were small,
Oh,three feet tall,
cotton dress a checkered blue.

You'd greet all and sundry passers by,with toothy grin,and sparkling eye.
They'd ask,'Who's little girl are you?'
Your jacks and jumprope,
off to play,
'My daddy's little girl' you'd say.
Proud daughter of my youth.
Kind strangers know,a child's heart grows,love guided,pledged to truth.

Late one night,I was awakened by my wife.
'I went to the bathroom,..and I can't stop peeing!'..
No sooner had she said that,than I felt the gush of fluid against my skin.

Yep,her water broke...(aren't you glad I shared that?)
Anywhiz,some 30-odd hours later,on April 6th,1976,she presented me with a lovely daughter!

Well I talked to Miss Thang yesterday,and it seems her significant other got her a brand spankin' new laptop for her birthday.
Finally we can IM on webcam,E-mail,and exchange pix with each other like as if this were indeed the 21st century!..
I'm so happy,I think my water may break..

Friday's post makes me think/say that when it comes to human minds and consciousness. es. The plural of that. Oh. When it comes to US, beauty and love (which HAS to be about the most beautiful) are our rewards for standing up to hostile nature and natures. Our rewards and our inspiration. (Okay, that's what I think.)

And we'll create it if we have to. You did beautifully with this laptop owning one. Happy Birthday, Dad.

What a doll Sling! An apple off the tree that stayed close to her sweet papa. God truly blessed you.
The scenario, though, afetr changing diapers all day...I'm off to hazmat shower and get in clean, cozy jammies. The wait for hot flashes...

That is way cool you can IM and video conference. haven't we come a long way daddy? :)

Booda Babe- ' When it comes to US, beauty and love (which HAS to be about the most beautiful) are our rewards for standing up to hostile nature and natures. Our rewards and our inspiration.'..
That's what I'm talkin' about right there!

Mouse- They are gorgeous kids!
Comes the 18th,and I'll be posting a pic of my son for his birthday. :)

serena joy- She's a livin' doll!
I've counted the votes,and it's official. ;)

CS- That whole 'scenario' was one of my most memorable experiences to be sure.
It was the first day of the rest of my life.

Hat-tastic - I only call her that when she finally gets a computer and promises to read my blog and I want to piss her off so she'll ring me up and call me a mean old bastard!..Lord he'p me,I love that stuff.
