As I share this story - I hope it brings laughter and a smile your way. And Dad... I LOVE YOU!
Yesterday I was outside working on this and that, I ran upstairs to get a drink of water and my phone was flashing (meaning I had a message). Now for those of you who know me - my phone and I do not get along the best at my house. I typically don't have service or it just plain old will not work.
So, I was completely surprised to see I had a message. I picked up my phone - a missed call from dad and a text from dad. The text was a little hard to decode - so I just called my dad (and again my phone worked).
Dad answers and asks if I can come over. I asked if it was an emergency - or could it wait a bit, for I was in the middle of a project. He says that it is sort of an emergency... still he is not giving me any details. I am getting a little nervous.
I ask, "Dad are you OK? What's going on?"
Dad says, "Well I'm sort of stuck on the roof. The wind came and blew my ladder away."
I am not sure if my dad was through with his story at this point, but I busted out in laughter and said I would be right there. I considered bringing my camera and taking a picture of him up there before giving him the ladder back.
Moral of the story - make sure your ladder is secure :)... and even more important - I'm just glad it was only a sort of emergency.
(It was pretty priceless pulling into my parent's and seeing dad just chillin' on the roof.)
Last ... But still Smiling!
Turbo Thank You...
... and Get Your Rear in Gear.
Peace and Hugs -
