How lucky am I to have had two dads!

 This month is not an easy month for me.  I lost my step dad last year on this date.  He taught me how to drive and took me to get my drivers license.  He was a rock driller, and I remember being able to go with him on the job.  I stood under a big rock truck, while they blew up the rock face for the quarry he worked in.  He taught me how to drive a drill that was on tracks.  I even was able to help him get explosives ready for blowing up the rock.   He was the best dad a girl could have!  He was the one that drove me from Illinois to Ohio to meet Matt when we were first together.  I was on my way to live with Matt in New York.   He is deeply missed.  I loved him as if he was my biological father.

Next week is just as hard.  It will be two years since I lost my real dad.  I will save his memories for next week.

So sorry Lisa, it must be very hard for you to get through this time.

Sounds like your dad did a great job of raising you! That must have been a lot of fun watching him blow stuff up!
