The other morning while running on the treadmill at my new gym, a gentleman who looked to be a trainer approached me and extended his hand out for a high five. Not knowing him, I thought maybe he confused me for a friend or a client. Since I was running at a pretty good clip (and exhausted), I clasped the handle bar with my left hand and high-fived him with my right. He broke out in a huge grin, gave me a thumbs up, and with a limp in his gait, walked away. It was then I realized he is living with some disabilities, and besides replenishing headsets on cardio machines, his favorite task is to go around and offer encouragement to those sweating away on ellipticals, stationary bikes, and the like.
To all of the men out there–whether fathers or not–for your high-fives, protection, encouragement, and support, I hope you have a very Happy Father’s Day!
Hey Pokey!! I saw your Father’s Day post on Facebook and just wanted to say hi. I hope all is well in your world. Maybe our paths will cross one of these days soon. Love ya, Dave
Cuz! Hope all is well with you, too, and hope to catch up sometime soon. I think I am going back to the farm in VA in the next few weeks if I can swing it. Take care, Dave. Love, Pokey
What a Precious memory and Photo. You look the same and your dress was just adorable!
That was sweet to say, Judy. Thanks!
I love this pic of you and your dad! 🙂
I’ve been enjoying your ponderings!
(from SEP board– a long time ago!)
Dena! Long time no chat! Nice to see you! I hope all is well with you and yours… xoxo, Pokey
I just pieced my first quilt and couldn’t help but think of you. I still have the books you sent and fabric. Looks like I might be a quilter after all! Hope all is well with you, too.
Hugs to you!
What a nice-looking man your Dad was! Kb

Lovely post Pokey and what a wonderful photo of you and your Dad. I totally agree with Judy, you look the same… 🙂
Okay, now that I see your father I realize there is no way you could have lost out in the good gene department: both your parents are very good looking. What a sweet picture of you with your father. I know you miss him. I miss mine, too. but I’m happy for all the good memories.
