  1. Your dad’s Satchmo singing is no joke. I have heard him sing Wonderful World and You’re Nobody Til Somebody Loves You at perhaps that same piano bar. He is truly amazing. Sending a kiss to Bierne from Mims and tell him that Louis A. should be thanking him from the grave for keeping his songs so well tuned.

    Even though your presence will be quite enough I’m sure. Ahem….

  2. Mimi-
    And he always has a smile for you. When I arrived at his door Thursday I got a bear hug. It had been a couple of months since I had seen him…

  3. Sounds like a great guy! I’m just glad my dad isn’t online to read my answers (although I didn’t really get into any details).

  4. I envy the fact that you still have your dad around a 83, though I’m delighted the two of you have so much fun together and get along well. I’m saddened by the passing of Tim Russert too and feel for HIS dad (and his family of course) today.

    Thanks for the brief history of Saturday 9. I always enjoy learning things I don’t know. I’m relieved to know I’m not the only one who doesn’t read all the questions first … and who sometimes finds myself being repetitiously redundant … or having to revise previous answers to make for a coherent list.

    Hugs and blessings,

    I am lucky to still have him around. His brothers and mom lived well into their 90s.

    I feel equally bad for Tim Russerts family. 58 is WAY too young to leave this world.

    Hugs and blessing to you as well…

  6. I think calling me a drunk is one thing. But you also insult me by calling me Lola! Actually I did screw up the questions when I posted last night and did not realize it mad a difference until I read your blog today.

    Well eeeexxxxxxxxcuse me!

    I was a bit tipsy. Have you had Smirnoff? Bwhaha! Thanks for keeping me on my toes!

  7. “And I sound more like Bob Dylan.” OMG–I’m giggling now. Bob’s made some good money so the door may not be shut for you either.

    Lovely tribute to someone who sounds like a great guy. Enjoy your day tomorrow!

  8. Wow…you dad sounds like a great man! Must be where you get your greatness Bud 🙂

    Have a great weekend.

  9. Your Dad sounds wonderful… you’re lucky to have such a great relationship with him.
    Happy Father’s Day Eve Bud!

  10. I really enjoyed reading this~I love your wit and humor! Your Dad sounds like an amazing and wonderful man! Thanks for stopping by mine.

    BTW~do you know what Budweiser stands for?

    My dad is a one of a kind guy. He marches to his own drummer with wit, class and a ton of common sense. Thanks!

  12. Mere-
    Thanks for returning my visit! I have been Bud Weiser since 1967. And I don’t even like beer!

  13. I was so surprised by how many people said their moms were tougher! I am thinking maybe I could have gotten away with being tougher as a mom!

    Your dad sounds like a fun guy!

  14. Barbara-
    It is odd about the moms. Thanks, my dad is one of a kind. “The best kind!” he would say…

  15. I’m with you on #9. No way in hell would I ever do this either.

    I got a little sick with the Grandma does Dallas thing. Just the idea that you actually watched the entire thing kind of sick. Bwahahahahahah. I read them all I’ll have you know. Have a great day Bud. 🙂
