Don your party hats and dust off your dancing shoes….it’s my Father-in-Law’s birthday today!!
Because everyone deserves a dancing banana on their birthday…
Here are five things you probably don’t know about my FIL, Walt:
He’s a blog author, too! He’s been writing a blog for as long as I’ve known him, and The Lucky Puppy
was a major inspiration for me to start my own blog. You’ll have to drop by and visit him sometime. **Warning**
This blog is not for kids! Be prepared for a lot of political discussion, dirty jokes, and a strange sense of humor. But, it’s why we love him so.
#2: Walt and I are as different politically as two people can possibly be. He thinks I’m a dirty tree-hugging liberal hippie. I think he’s a fanatical right-wing extremist. It makes for heated debates, that’s for sure. But when it comes right down to it, I think we’re both a little closer to the middle than we let on. (Shhh….don’t tell him I said that. He’ll think it’s a conspiracy and somehow link it to how the Democrats are brainwashing women under the age of 35 into believing that Republicans are the Devil.)
#3: I’m just guessing, here, but I’m assuming he likes it when people sing to him. So, on three, ladies and gents….One, two, THREE:
(My confusion with technology just makes this video funnier. Also, I couldn’t figure out how to edit it out….)
#4: Walt once gave me advice that shaped my life, and my marriage. The force is strong with this one.
#5: All kidding aside, Walt has the biggest heart of anyone I know. He’s always willing to drop everything when you need him, he gives the best long-distance pep talks in the world, and he loves his kids more than anything else in his life. People always tell you that when you get married, it’s a package deal. Well, I can honestly say that Brian’s Dad is a true gift, and I’m glad I got to add him to my family when I married his son.
Love ya, Dad!
