Father’s Day

Filed under: Journal writing — freethepen @ 1:05 pm

dad&uncle My father is the man on the left and his brother, my uncle, is the man on the right. Today I remember both of them for the jokes they constantly played on me, for the times we had together swimming at Coney Island at night, eating Nathan’s hot dogs, laughing on Sundays during my uncle’s weekly visits, eating, eating, and more eating. We sure loved long meals together around the table laughing, talking, arguing, and sharing our lives. I will always keep those meals close to my heart.

I loved times with dad eating hot pastrami sandwiches with sour pickles at a little deli on Avenue J, thick cheesy pizza, Carvel ice cream on hot summer nights, and going to the movies.

What were your favorite memories with your father? How well did you know him? What would you want to do with him today or what will you do with him today to make more memories?

Keep the pen moving,

Jan and
