  • Easter Basket Hunt

    from My Funny Dad, Harry

    I always did like chocolate and still do! My mom and dad used to fill up baskets like this with marshmallow peeps or bunnies, chocolate rabbits, colored eggs and my favorite--marshmallow eggs. I still like the marshmallow eggs best. My aunt Della used to work for Tower chocolates so those marshmallow eggs were my favorite. The above picture shows me with a big smile because I just found my Easter basket that was behind a chair. My parents used to hide it so I had the fun of looking for it....

    1956 Making Bubbles at Grandma'sI was daddy's little girl. I loved to to my grandma's house (his mom's) and in this picture, we are in her backyard. My dad is making bubbles and I am trying to catch them. He loved spending time with me. Back then, he had a good full head of black hair. Do you enjoy spending time playing with your little ones?

    After my mom died December of 1999, dad just piled stuff everywhere. While my husband and I were visiting him, I was helping him with his Christmas cards and my husband got bored so decided to take a video tour of his rooms. Harry's Dining RoomHe had two filing cabinets in his dining room (can't really see them in this shot though) and a whole lot of empty boxes on the floor between his table and the window seat from things he bought. Kitchen stove piled with junk.Dad quite using his stove...
  • Simple Things Aren't Always So Simple

    Square_140_bandaged_head-breakfast_story_7-23-2005Telling me his latest problem at breakfast in his dining room. I got a call from the paramedics telling me dad fell at Giant Eagle as he was taking his groceries to his car, hit his head but is refusing to go to the hospital. I told them to go ahead and take him and I would meet them there. His cart started to tip as he was pushing it down the little ramp from the sidewalk to the parking lot, then he fell when he was trying to straighten it. He just banged up his head but they said he didn't...
  • Cardboard Cat Condo--Fun To Make, Fun for Your Cats!

    from My Funny Dad, Harry

    Monday March 16th, 2015 at 03:37 AM

    This is a picture of the cat condo my dad, Harry, made out of cardboard. He loved building things and was very adept at working with cardboard since he worked at St. Regis for years as a box designer. Softie, another all black cat, is inside on the second floor. Sorry you can't see it too well in this picture. If you have cats, you know they love boxes, right? I had fun making one for my two cats, Spunky Doodle and Manny Boy using boxes from Christmas in 2012. I even put a musical Christmas...
  • Have You Ever Seen a Porch Like This?

    from My Funny Dad, Harry

    Saturday March 14th, 2015 at 04:12 AM

    My dad's porch was small. What you see in the picture shows just about the full length except for the space by the steps in front of the two front doors--one for upstairs where his cats Softie, Sweet Thing and Sylvester resided and one for downstairs. At first he put up the heated "Kitty Motel" that had a swinging door at the end that the cats could push to go in and out. Most liked the top where the food buffet was. The home-made scratching post was added later. He asked me to look for a...
  • Jail Break!

    from My Funny Dad, Harry

    Thursday March 12th, 2015 at 04:23 PM

    Do you know what this is? It's a homemade cat carrier the my dad made to take his sick cat, Timi, to the vet. I think it looks like a jail but my dad wanted his cat to be able to see his surroundings. The top was on hinges and could be lifted up to drop the cat inside and the door could open to let the cat out. Timi was not feeling well, he just laid in one spot all day for a couple days in a row and wouldn't eat. Dad was not a believer in regular vet care so the trip to the vet was very,...
  • Thanks to The Snipping Tool, I Have More Coming Here!

    from My Funny Dad, Harry

    Tuesday March 10th, 2015 at 04:47 PM

    Square_140_striper_in_the_laundry_chute After not posting on this blog since 2013 because I ran out of things to write, I finally discovered a way of capturing photos from the DVD I had made from some video that I had taken with my camcorder. If you can excuse the quality of the pics, I am sure you will enjoy these new upcoming posts. I found I can view the DVD clips on the computer, pause it when I get to a spot that I'd like a picture of and then minimize the screen and use the snipping tool to capture it and save it to my...
