Well, since I am not as cool as my sisters and don't have a blog, I decided to leave a comment about my favorite memory of my daddy.

I love all the silly little phrases he comes up with! My favorite of all times was when he called me while I was hanging out with some friends. He asked what I was doing and I responded with, "I am just hanging out." Dad, the philosopher that he is, responded with, "Katie, you have hung out long enough! You are dry now!"

I love you daddy! Happy 50!
