My dad died on Memorial Day, 1991.
Two years ago on Memorial Day, I met Willy Dunne Wooters, who is a veteran, but very much alive.
Hes a cutie too!ReplyDelete
My dad or Willy Dunne Wooters?Delete
Obviously a significant day for you.ReplyDelete
Hold on to him.ReplyDelete
I remember my mom saying that her colleagues at work went on and on about how handsome my dad was. He was very tall and thin.Delete
It's good to remember.ReplyDelete
Favorite Young Man, Willy Dunne Wooters, and I drank a toast to my dad this evening.Delete
A special day xReplyDelete
You are a very lucky woman to have had a great dad and now another great man in your life. Wishing you well.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Murees. I did have a great dad, and now I love Willy Dunne Wooters wholeheartedly.Delete
I'm sure your Dad would be very happy that you met Willy Dunn Wooters!ReplyDelete
Yes, he would, but first he would have dealt with X in some fashion.Delete
I remember your touching salute to your father one year ago. It was nice to be reminded of him again this Memorial Day. It's quite a coincidence that you met WDW on this same holiday.ReplyDelete
It's not a coincidence. All went according to plan.Delete
Your dad looks so commanding but in a quiet way-steadfast and true. It is nice that your hubby is there beside you-many don't have thisReplyDelete
You describe my father perfectly. He was not a man to disobey. He was a good officer. Willy Dunne Wooters is not my husband, but he is the closest thing to it.Delete
I am not married either but I call him hubby instead of husband:)Delete
Occasionally I catch myself calling Willy Dunne Wooters my husband. I try not to do it because neither one of us wants to marry. I also don't want to give people the wrong impression.Delete
Gotta hold on to those keepers!ReplyDelete
Both very special people to you Janie. XXXXReplyDelete
Definitely. I don't know what I'd do without Willy Dunne Wooters and Favorite Young Man.Delete
Plenty to remember for you on Memorial Day!ReplyDelete
It's a special day. I don't think of it as a holiday.Delete
What a strange coincidence. Very symmetric how life gives and takes away. Happy...no, pensive...no...Mindful Memorial Day to you and all.ReplyDelete
"Mindful" is a good word. I've wondered how to use it, and now I know. It's not a coincidence, however. It was meant to be.Delete
Two years already?! OMG! Where has the time gone? That's really cool! Of course, I can't believe Ian is going to be one next month, either. Life seems to be speeding by. :)ReplyDelete
Remember you knew I was out with him? You were one of the people I was supposed to contact to say I was okay, and I spent HOURS with him.Delete
Yes--but it doesn't seem that long ago--LOL! Glad it has worked out for you two. :)Delete
The time has gone so quickly, even faster since Ian arrived to change your life.Delete
A very BIG day for you, Janie!ReplyDelete
Funny how 'these things' happen, eh?
"Eh" is right, Jim.Delete
Good plan. Losing your dad on Memorial Day adds another level of sadness to the remembrances, but meeting a good man ( a keeper!) on Memorial Day balances things out a bit.ReplyDelete
I like a balanced life.Delete
What a handsome fellow. He would be so proud of you (and I'm sure he WAS proud of you).ReplyDelete
Thank you for handling my comments - now everyone will prefer you and I'll be out of a Flipside job. Oh, well. Back to modeling (snark...pure snark). Love ya, JJ.
I've suspected for quite some time that you are a supermodel.Delete
The Wooters man is a sexy beast.Delete
Cheers to the great men in your life.ReplyDelete
Thank you, dear Squid.Delete
Sorry you lost your father:( and glad you met someone exceptional:)ReplyDelete
As I grow older, I miss my parents more. I've grateful for Willy Dunne Wooters.Delete
I'm sorry for your loss, when you were both way too young. Your dad looks brave, decisive and determined.ReplyDelete
It's wonderful that you have a positive connection with Memorial Day now, thanks to WDW. I'm happy for you both.
That's a good description of my father. He was in his seventies when he died. The photo of him in uniform was taken when he was quite a bit younger. I'm grateful for the positive twist to Memorial Day.Delete
I can tell your Dad meant and means a lot to you. I wish I could say the same about mine. Willy Dunne Wooters is very much alive. Good, let's keep it that way.ReplyDelete
Have a great day, Janie.
I'm sorry you can't say the same about your father, but I can't say the same about my mother. We all have unresolved issues with someone, dear Blue.Delete
Glad that WDW is still around. Nice photo of your day!ReplyDelete
I'll keep Willy Dunne Wooters alive so he can be my sex toy. Wow! I can't believe I said that (you know I can believe it, of course).Delete
