First I would like to thank all the authors who participated in RomFan’s First Annual Holiday Blog Hop. All of your stories were wonderful and you all were great sports.
A special thank you to Keta Diablo whom if it was not for her having the idea I would have never thought of it myself, Keta you are awesome big cyber hugs to you my friend.
So, after reading all these great memories I decided to throw my own together for the last day of 2011.
I have a lot of favorite holidays with my family but every year two special ones come to mind.
The first one I was probably eight and got my ears pierced that year. Well, my daddy hands me a box and asks me to wrap it for my mom inside was a pair of diamond earrings, so as any good daughter *snickers* I did as I was asked. On Christmas morning my dad was handing out the gifts and he handed me the gift I had wrapped for my mom and he handed an identical gift to my mom. We went to hand them back and said he got them mixed up and that is when he informed us that we wrapped our own Christmas presents, you see he bought us identical earrings.
Now the second favorite Christmas was the following year and we spent it at my grandparents in Maryland. I always loved going to grandpa and grandma’s because they moved a lot due to my grandpa’s job. Anyway, this particular Christmas I was opening my gifts when I came upon one which was a stuffed St. Bernard and a book on how to care for your St. Bernard. Of course I gave my dad a quizzical look and asked why would I need a book to care for a stuffed dog? Hey I was nine what did I know. I didn’t get an answer.
After Christmas we drove home, we always drove my mom fears flying. When we got close to home daddy said we had to make a quick stop, so we stopped at this house and dad went in while mom and I waited in our VW Camper Van thingy, I know that is telling my age. When my dad came out he had a bundle of fluff in his arms yep, you guessed it, my St. Bernard puppy my dad named Chickasaw, Chick for short. Chick was my constant companion and friend until I was 16 when due to my parents divorce and lose of our home due to a fire I had to find him a new home.
|Me and Daddy|
My daddy has always been the best daddy in the world. He came into my life when I was three and I did not make a very good first impression as he likes to remind me. But, he gave me his name and loved me more than anything else in this world.
He called me just some time ago and said he came across this site called RomFan Reviews. I told him yep that was me and his reply was “My daughter reads erotica” I just said yep. He came back with “That’s my girl”. He also likes the word erotica, such a dirty old man lol…
Although we don’t talk much or see each other often I know that he will always be there to catch me if I need him. To hold me if I need to cry or tease me until I laugh so hard I can’t breath. Because I know that as he is one of the most important people in my life I am also one of his and I am still his “baby” as he still calls me.
I love you Daddy and thank you for all the wonderful memories you have given me and the many more we will make.
