When he was in good health, he often sang and even sometimes he did a crazy little dance that still makes me smile when I see it in my head. He called me his "tweetie-pie" and would sing a made-up song that was just for me. I'm sure many girls think they have the best Dad and I'm no different. I miss him every day.
If you are fortunate enough to still have your Dad, or a Dad in your life, hug them often and be sure they know how much you love them; you'll be glad you did when they are no longer around.
I'll leave you with a verse to a song that he often sang for no particular reason:
A Bushel And A Peck
I love you a bushel and a peck
A bushel and a peck and a hug around the neck
A hug around the neck and a barrel and a heap
A barrel and a heap and I'm talkin' in my sleep
About you, about you
'Cause I love you a bushel and a peck
You bet your purdy neck I do.
Rest in Peace Carl "Coddie" Rodgers....until we meet again.
