Country Road, Take Me Home!

Today is my father’s birthday, I just got off the phone with him to say happy 94th birthday, dad! This got me thinking about my roots way back up north. I dug into my very extensive archives and pulled this photo down from my cloud storage. This photo isn’t near where I lived but it is the same bumpy ass road, complete with those ridiculous plops of asphalt the road crews throw in those craters. Snow, rain, ice. Freezing and thawing all work together to destroy our Michigan roads! Happy birthday, Dad, I love you!

    • Thank you, Anneli! I call my son and daughter every year the day of, or the day before, dad’s birthday to make sure that they make the call and show respect. They love grandpa so much too! My sister and I are so amazed and happy for our daddy! 🙏🏻❤️☺️

  1. Happy birthday to your father, John, and more to follow! ❤️

    Those roads with asphalt filled craters look similar to ones from my home town where I grew up. 🙂

    • Thank you so much, Linda! He’s doing fine and is an amazing man in many ways. Best father any son could want! ❤️

  2. Happy Birthday to Him, Blessing and Happiness to you all, Thank you, Love, nia

    • He’s fine, thanks so much, AnneMarie! Actually, one of his wonderful old buddies has traveled with him from Florida via an antique car show or two over the last few days while heading north. Dad owned the business, his buddy was the parts department manager and I worked for the manager when I was in high school! This was 1978 and 1979. Wonderful memories!
