My old man

Today is my dad’s 68th birthday. I can remember driving over to his house in my 1979 Datsun 510 back in Memphis and hammering a sign into his yard that said, “Happy 50th Dad!” That was EIGHTEEN YEARS AGO. Whooo-ahhhh? I called to wish him a happy birthday, and get this! My dad finally got call-waiting! FINALLY. IN 2009! Because he was talking to my sister on the other line! I COULDN’T BELIEVE IT. Next thing you know he’s going to start using his dishwasher! Dude is getting CRAZY in his old age!
