If you are fortunate enough to have a Daddy, give him a big ol' hug and tell him you love him. My Daddy died when I was four years old, 42 years ago, and my Grampa died when I was 18 and I still miss them both!
While we were walking the boardwalk in Grand Haven (Coast Guard City, USA) yesterday these bright red flowers caught my eye so I had to stop for a closer look. They were left by Seaman O'Mally's children. He was one of only two survivors of the sinking of the Escanaba.
