How time does fly

It's hard to believe that last week marked the one-year anniversary since my Father's passing. Because of that, I purposely scheduled lots of things to do, keeping myself very busy during that time and because of that, was unable to get anything posted to the site, my apologies.

The specific day was Wed, the 23rd and a local theater was showing all of the Indiana Jones films every Wed for the month of August and last week was, appropriately enough "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade". Now my father and I certainly never battled Nazis, flew to foreign countries (except Canada, as that was where he was from), or looked for religious artifacts of significant value. But we did share our own adventures, many of which came to mind while watching the film. I did tear up at times, but all in all it was an enjoyable evening. Oddly enough, we never saw this film together, the only IJ film he ever saw was "Raiders of the Lost Ark". Can't really say if he enjoyed it, I think in some way he did because if he hadn't, he would have walked out and waited for me in the car, like the time my Mom, Dad and I went to see "Ghostbusters". Dad believed there were two types of films in this world; John Wayne films…and crap. Hence the reason he could never understand my fixation with "Star Wars". But despite our many differences, after Mom passed away we mended fences and had many enjoyable times together, it's just sad we can't add to them anymore. But the bright side is that even though he's been gone from me for a year, he's been with Mom for a year now, and his place was always at her side.

So in closing, Dad I just want to say I love you, I miss you, and I cherish all the time we shared together. We may never have found a lost ark or a holy grail, but after being apart for so long, we did find each other in enough time to really make it count, and for that I am truly thankful. Rest in peace.
