Easy Just Like Father's Day Sunday

Went thru Tommy's pictures and found these-
Of Tommy when she was itty bitty kitten and her Daddy
Not really sure what that thing is Tommy reaches for and
Why is she covered all over-even her hands-
To be in all that white stuff? Like her own fur!
It's neat to hear Tommy talk about her Daddy, because
He LOVED cats!
Her Daddu liked to blow smoke rings from his cigar-
So Tommy's cats would try to bat at them!
When Tommy moved to Dallas 100 years ago,
Her Daddy missed Tommy's before ME cats, Morris and Millee
Around the house. They would greet her Daddy when he got home
From work. Liked that alot. Of course, Morris ate 4 of
Tommy's step-mother's love birds, but that's another post! :)
Thru the years besides, her Daddy eating anything Tommy made
In her Easy Bake Oven, they always did lotsa stuff together:
Take walks, movies, go fishing, talk over pancakes and just be-
Tommy's Daddy has been gone since 2001and misses him a bunch-
Sometimes now when Tommy and ME curl to watch Andy Griffith-
Tommy swears her Daddy's cigar smoke lingers in the air-
I purr to let her know it does-
As I bat at the cigar smoke rings
Happy Father's Day!

My Sweet Daddy Peyton
I love him

Always good to remember those who have gone before us, and it sounds as though Tommy's daddy was an excellent daddy.

Thanks for liking the post! Tommy is about to sit down and watch some TV after she handles the laundry. Dishes still need to be washed--but she says: It's Father's Day! :)

Have a great rest of the Sunday!

Really lovely post! Sounds like Tommy's daddy is a daddy we'd like too!

Tommy says her Daddy really liked the before Me cat, Morris--he was all long haired--like Samson-but he was a orange tabby--so she says her Daddy woulda really liked Samson!
