cowboy boots and such
This is a picture of my Uncle Dell from a few summers ago.
He had a birthday last month and as the youngest sibling has now outlived my dad, who was the oldest sibling. Kind of weird. My dads siblings have all now officially out lived him.
I went to Arctic Circle yesterday with Sierra and Cole while I was out and about in the big city.
We stopped to grab a bite to eat and sat in "Kent's Booth" while we waited for our food.
I reminded the kids about my dad.
Cole continues to call him Uncle Kent.
Sierra said that she can only remember a few things about him.
Then, a funny thing happened.
Guy came in. Guy is the most regular of all regulars.
He has been coming in to AC for lunch for as long as I can remember.
He sat down in the booth next to us and said...
"I sure miss your dad.
With that silly-ass mustache,
and those damn clompitty clomp cowboy boots.
But I still miss him."
It just made me laugh. Only Guy can say things like that and have it not be offensive.
