Thursday 13 - What Daddy Did in Florida

I think all of you know by the incredible amount of pouting I did lately that my Daddy left me to go to Florida. But you did not know why he went. Here are 13 things my Daddy did on his trip to Florida.
1. He flew in big airplanes. He does not like to fly, so this was a lot like my Mommy shoving me in a PTU and going to the VET! Except she had to drive him to the airport and listen to him cry about the awfullness of it all.
The handsome man on the left is my Grandpa - he turned 90 years old last weekend. That's why Daddy agreed to get in a PTU. 2. They had a party and ate birthday cake and HAM!!! Without me... :(

3. My Grandpa was in the Navy at Pearl Harbor on the day it got attacked, so they looked at old news articles about that awful day. 4. Did I mention that they ate HAM!!! without me already? 5. They posed for photos wearing Chicago Cubs Floppy hats that Daddy had bought for my Grandpa and Grandma. 6. Daddy said he perspired a lot because it was very hot and humid in the Sunshine State. 7. He also took many, many showers because of #6.

8. Daddy played tennis. Poorly. 9. As a result of playing tennis, he had to buy a new pair of tennis shoes because his old pair fell into pieces. 10. He took a lot of Ibuprofen after he played tennis, I do not know why. 11. He got to meet a nephew of his that he had never met in person before. This was very exciting and cool for Daddy.

12. He watched the moon through the palm trees at night. If he would have been in Miami, would he have been watching the "Moon Over My Hammie"? HaHaHaHaHa!

13. He missed me. It's good to have him home!

I understand why your Daddy sweated -- it's our state's mandate that we sweat 11 months out of the year. Also our state bird is the mosquito...YIKES...but we echo that No.13 is the most impawtant of the TT!

Yes, Florida is the Perspiration State alright. We lived there for a long time before we moved to Georgia, which is also the Perspiration State. It's always miserable degrees hot, except around Christmas when it's tolerably hot.

What a wonderful trip your daddy took and know it meant a lot to his daddy. That's quite amazing he was at Pearl Harbor that day!!! Not many of those who fought in WWII are left. We salute him and all those who served and died.

What a wonderful collection of Thursday Thirteen things your Daddy did while away from you.

He should buy you some HAM just for you for having the audacity to actually eat the stuff without you being there.
