My “step”-dad is 80 today. I put “step” in quotes because, to me, he’s just Dad. I feel closer to him than my biological father (who passed 11 years ago), and he’s always been one of my biggest champions. Gotta love a man who married for the first time at 36 years old and inherited another man’s 3 children.
I know he won’t read this, and doesn’t know what a blog is, but Pa, I love you and hope I have quite a few more years to enjoy you.
