Happy birthday dad

For those of you who don't know why I have such a diverse taste in music it is partly because of my stepfather Skip.  He always complained if we put "our" channel on, telling us to put his channel on before he gets home, he was a truck driver.

I was raised with Willie Nelson, Johny Cash and Ray Stevens playing in the kitchen.  I used to make my dad play "Jogging" and jog around the house, listen to the Monkey's and of course we can't forget his sweetheart Anne Murray.  

So I bet you could imagine the surprise on my face when we were at a summer party and I caught him singing, "it wasn't me."

I love and miss my dad every day and think of him every time I hear one of his songs.

    That’s sweet. It’s great to have a vast amount of music you like…you never run out of memories and can’t get bored,plus there’s always a song that fits your present mood.
