We raised pigeons together for years, at one time our coop exceeded the 200 mark!! A lot of fun time was spent at pigeon shows and swaps with my dad. We would get up before sun up, crate the birds, load them in the truck, and off we'd go............those were great years.
Then I discovered boys........and dad made sure I understood there wasn't going to be any shanigans tolerated with his little girl. Once I married and moved away, both my parents have been there every single time I needed anything. Not judging, not complaining, just THERE. A lesson that I had to learn when my own son moved away, just be there when they need you.
Am I lucky, do I feel blessed, do I have great parents? yes, yes and yes.
