Loud children in the background jumping and laughing –
and me hung over, stinking of booze... that was true.
Strong but soft you tried to play shy.
“Uncle Pat, Uncle Pat come play” Payton Mary cried.
Sometimes I ‘m a poop, angry like a bear – but it’s you that puts me in place, it’s you that cares and that is always there.
Pennsylvania with detours to – I know you hate when I watch Star Wars or Lord of the Rings – Again and Again. Michigan
(It was tradition to stop in Michigan to go to White Castle. When we went, we got lost. We always got lost when Patrick was driving.
His favorite movies were Star Wars and Lord of the rings. He liked to watch them on TV compared to the DVD's. He did watch them all the time!)
We’ve hit deer, strip poker’d with Brock and barfed Chinese – but the fun was doing all of it with you while listening to the Black Eyes Peas.
(On our way to see Aunt Jude and Uncle Bill in PA, he hit a deer with my new Jeep on the way.
When he lived in Madison, Goehler and I got drunk and played strip quarters. We wanted to see how drunk we could get before Patrick got home from work. When he returned, I was in a blanket and Brock in his boxers with the Black Eyed Peas playing at full blast. Patrick and I went and got dinner (Chinese) later and I puked in the parking lot.)
Back –aches, migraines and my lack of no butt. Us having food poisoning & with scratch-offs little to no luck –“What the Fuck?”
We only bought scratch off lottery tickets during Christmas and we never won.)
The porn channel on our honeymoon.
Our wedding song - the greatest-ever
Pearl Jam tune.
The sweet sound of Given To Fly.
The picture of you blowing…the one that made me cry.
(On our Honeymoon in Punta Cana, a porn channel appeared half way thru our vacation out of no where.
My wife – I love you more than you will ever see.
There is no other person like you who allows me to be me.
I may not know how to whisper and I may yawn too loud.
I also don’t turn on my side after being poked while I snore.
(Patrick had a hard time whispering. He would talk softer, but it was still loud.
His yawns would be loud that they would sometimes scare me.
He snored all the time. I used to hit him in the middle of the night, but then after a while I just gave him a soft poke and it usually worked.)
Happy Valentine’s Day
