Memories of Dad....Father's Day 2010

Being a child of the 60's, we had "Silly Putty" , (who remembers that?) we played with it for hours...pressing it flat and making "copies" of the comics in the newspaper...that was so high tech..anyway, one day my Dad picked it up and began to roll it on the table, making it skinnier and longer, much like a snake or a worm. Then, he says, "hey kids, watch this", and puts one end of the "snake" in his right ear and the other end in his left ear, as if a snake is crawling through his head. Of course we all got a good laugh out of that. But, when he removed the silly putty from his ears, he did not get all of it out and Mom had to take him to the emergency room and have it removed. Of course, eventually, that was the funniest part. Many funny, fond, loving memories of my Dad today. I miss him and his sense of humor. ♥
