Time to get a couple hours of sleep…

Never realized that My Little Pony’s show format is, interestingly enough, Mork & Mindy.

Testing from my iPad. Nooch.

Today would have been my dad’s 64th Birthday.

As a few of you picked up on, today was a rough day thanks to the miracle of Google Now.  You see, I’ve worked so hard to keep all the information in and around my life organized that sometimes I forget some of that info… hence why I use reminders via technology.

Today Google Now on my phone reminded me that it was (would have been) my father’s 64th birthday and his and Sharon’s 19th wedding anniversary.

Russ CroomIt took a number of months or so after his death for me to truly come to terms with his passing, and I’m more or less fine – but random reminders still serve as a kick in the gut from time to time.  My dad never really understood the whole “geek universe” I swim in the sea of, but he would always listen when I would vent regarding the issues I would have to overcome when working with events.

If nothing else, we was a great listener.

So happy birthday, old man.  (If you’ll excuse me – I’m just going to continue to assume he’s still reading my online nonsense.)

Added note: I Google dad from time to time in case any random info pops up and found this site listing his football career.  I might have to find photos to scan and update the info for him at some point: http://www.fanbase.com/Russ-Croom
