Happy Birthday Mandy....








.


25 years ago today, My daughter Amanda was born.
Her 1st night home, I slept under her crib all night long,
just to hear her breathe!
She was named after JR Ewings mistress Mandy Winger.
(JR was my all time favorite TV character!!)
She graduated from The University of Michigan in Ann Arbor,
Just because she knew that her daddy would be so proud that
she would attend the college that I loved and graduated from.
She's been married for nearly 2 years to a fine young man Sean,
that loves her and treats her like the spoiled brat that she is.
They lived in Prague Czech Repuplic for over a year teaching
English. They now live in Istanbul Turkey doing the same thing.
I miss her terribly...
Happy Birthday Dollie...Daddy loves you very much!

(Mr. Knowitall has the night off....)

Hope your birthday is the first day of a great year for you kids.


Old man I'd let you sleep under my bed but the old lady would think it was weird and you'd probably want the safety on the shotgun that you'd be sleeping with.

G-Man, you sweet ol' teddy bear you! What a nice post about your little girl. She's lucky to have such a loving daddy. Happy birthday, Mandy!

Your daughter is quite lovely (mine just turned 21.) Such a great thing, for her to have that story of her first night home with a loving dad to watch over her...
