5 Years Ago Today


5 years ago today, I was shopping at one of my thrift stores. I remember because it was the day my dad died and I got the call while I was standing in line to pay. Hard to believe its been 5 years already.

The phone rang again this morning - early. 8:10am. I don't like getting calls that early, it seems like it's gotta be an emergency or something bad when someone calls that early. It was an automated phone call from ebay saying that there was a one day sale on listing fees today. ebay calling at 8am!!!???!! Good thing I wasn't sleeping. Well I'm gonna run and list some stuff on ebay. My Dad would approve - he had the most rock solid work ethic I've ever seen. I just wish more rubbed off on me!

Chris,
Very sorry to hear about your Dad. We never get over the loss of our Father. I am sure he was watching over you as you listed on E-Bay and I am sure you made him proud. He would also be happy to learn that you are on Twitter. I signed up to follow you but don't know a thing about it. I read the info from Mark O'Neill and it was very helpful. Keep up the good work.

He looks like a nice man.

(My dad will be gone for five years in July.)
