I think of you every day. When life gets too challenging I remember all the things you taught me. Some you probably didn't even know you were teaching like perserverance. I love you Dad.

Thanks for checking in

Shared by Eddie Luckey on December 20, 2018

I had a 216 Calyer St memory flash through my thoughts this week. I recalled the wall mounted can opener near the kitchen sink. There were at least a half dozen "wishbones" drying out as usual. I guess we ate a lot of chicken. Then I remember the squabbles over who got to break these treasures. Whoever ended up with the bigger piece won the "wish". 

Well the flash came and went until a couple of days ago. Laura roasted a chicken with potatoes and carrots and onions. The epitome of a one pot meal. I scooped out some chicken and veggies. While eating my fork hit a bone. You guessed it. Wishbone! And then it came to me again, that simple memory. A second chance to recall the large family we had. Mom and Dad and brothers and sisters. 

So I guess thanks for checking in. Thanks for the memories. And a PS. I broke the bone myself. I won the wish.

Circular Saw!

Shared by Jean Staples on October 4, 2011

I remember Dad being out in the yard and just got his new circular saw!  I wanted to help him!  He let me use the saw and I had no clue what I was doing.  But dad told me no problem just cut a long the line that I drew.  Oh not only did I cut down the line - I cut the electric wire for the saw!  Oh how upset was I that I ruined Dad's saw and I couldnt stop crying!  But Dad said no problem you tried, the saw can be fixed, and as long as you are okay no problem  He then taped up the wires and showed me how to use it!  I'll never use a circular saw again!  But I know my dad had faith in me to let me try! 

Central Park

Shared by Eddie Luckey on August 26, 2011
This is a memory of Dad I keep close to my heart. As most of you know Dad had some pretty crazy work hours and our paths rarely crossed. One Saturday morning back when I was in high school I had gotten up so early it was still dark. I had a canoe race in Central Park for something called the Mayor's Cup or championship or something like that. I got myself dressed and out to the kitchen to eat something and leave. Well Dad was in the kitchen. He seemed tired and detached as he sometimes looked and was surprised to see me. After I told him about the race he helped me get a lunch. He packed all kind of simple treats like pickles and those little Italian plum tomatoes and and hard boiled eggs and sandwiches. I never would have packed a lunch like that. He asked me about the race and if I won a lot. I looked him in the eye and told him I always win. I think his approving smile is what lifted me that day. Through the dark and rainy day in Central Park not even getting soaked or lost on my way to the lake or breaking open the lunch bag that held my treasure could bring me down. I had my father's approval with me in that broken paper bag and nothing was bringing me down. I practically danced to the race, won my singles, doubles and 4man races and teamwise brought home the "Cup" and shared my lunch with everyone. It was a cold rainy Spring day but I will never forget the fire he put in me that day. I guess the moral of this story is never underestimate the power of a father's love. It is a golden thing radiating an irresistable warmth that restores and strengthens. I will always remember Dad this way.
