Rappin’ Rodney

Do any of you remember this song by Rodney Dangerfield, circa 1983? We used to sing it to my dad at the dinner table and thought we were hysterical. Rod was always such a good sport–about everything. So this past week it was fun to honor him for Fathers Day and, more importantly, his 60th birthday! Please forgive the blurry photo–it is a result of my careless photography, not my father’s lack of handsomeness, which hasn’t diminished a bit over the years! When someone you love has a big b-day, its a nice time to reflect on that person’s qualities, and here is a non-inclusive list of my dad’s:

kind
funny
warm
compassionate
self-deprecating
intelligent
spiritual
organized
well-read

successful (in his career and otherwise)

faithful (to church and family)
a leader and example in every way
Some may think this list a bit optimistic, but if you know my dad, you know that it barely scratches the surface. Every girl thinks she has the best dad in the world, but I happen to know that mine really is. Happy Birthday, Rappin’ Rodney!
p.s. Here is our attempt to take a picture of ourselves. I know…very adolescent, but Rod was a good sport and played along
