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:


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

  1. Well – you two haven’t changed at bit since the great 80’s…..not a bit!!!! And I agree on every word written above – Rod – you’re just great. Miss you guys….would love to come visit – actually my oldest daghter is talking about going to the US as an exchangestudent….maybe she should go stay with you jen? Well – take care….watch out – maybe some day I will be at your doorstep 🙂
    Hugs, Stine

    The glamour photo really helps soften the fine lines and wrinkles; see, I AM a good photographer!:) I just didn’t have time/care enough to take a good shot. But Rod really hasn’t aged much since the old days, nor has your dad, for that matter. The last pics I saw of him on your mom’s blog, he looked very handsome–seriously!
