To Daddy On His 80th Birthday

"My father didn't tell me how to live; he lived, and let me watch him do it." ~Clarence B. Kelland (American Writer)

We have had some wonderful times with Daddy, he's made us laugh hysterically, he's hugged us when we had rough times, disciplined us when we did wrong, made us "pull his finger", scared us out of our wits in the dark, supported us and kissed our "boo boos" and made them all better, he's been there for us through it all.

I can't imagine a Dad better than the one we were lucky enough to have in this lifetime. I also cannot believe that he turned 80 years old today... He wears it well, even though he's been through so much and endured it all, he has hung in there and we're so fortunate to have him here to share his "Big 8-0" So here is a tribute to: Jack Cutler...

Daddy...
"Gangster"

"Prankster"

"#1 Greatest Truck Driver"

"Father"

"Grandfather"

"Loving Husband"

One truly Magnificent Man...

Happy Birthday Daddy!!!

Indoors, Thanks. I hope he likes it too. Of course, he likes it anytime I brag on him. ;)

Dinners, He'll thank you, but I can't say for sure what allowed him to live this long, he has had Quad-Bypass surgery, strokes, is diabetic, etc. It's not for lack of him trying to buy the farm, he just still keeps on ticking! He still smokes too, maybe you shouldn't take tips from him!! LOL.

Jay, Muchos Gracias Amigo.

Speedcat, I appreciate that... and I'm glad you enjoyed it. I guess any parent hopes to get tributes so sincere. He's one of a kind!

Congrats on your B-day and if you need someone to pop out of the cake next year....Jackie knows how to reach me.....
