i just wanted to post a quick note telling my dad that i appreciate him. my dad is an extremely hard worker, always has been. he is a heating and air conditioning contractor and is extremely good at what he does. he often goes unthanked for the things that he does and i just wanted to let him know that i appreciate everything he's done. he has helped us immensely on our duplex with different things that needed to be done. dad had to have surgery today to fix his shoulder. he's been having major problems with it... torn ligaments and bone spurs. my mom just called to tell me that he's out of surgery and that it was a success. PHEW! i always get so worried about that kind of stuff. so anyway, just felt like letting you all know how much i love and appreciate my good ole' dad.
