Meet The Greatest Dad in the World…

When I married Joel 25 years ago, I knew he would be an incredible dad someday. Let’s just say that he’s exceeded my wildest dreams. He loves deeply, supports whole-heartedly and lives in a state of contentment…which is a very good thing because some of us (not naming names) are a bit more intense and demanding. Seriously, there he is on the beach which is mostly to make me happy…


He’s also happy to throw on some winter-ish clothes, my scarf and the kids’ hat to play in the layer of ice on the deck in one of our rare “winter storms” just to make sure everyone is happy.

He’s always up for a challenge and usually proves he’s still “got it”.


When Beignet the Bichon is naughty (and that happens frequently), Joel like’s to say, “I’m not the one who wanted a dog.” But, in reality, they have a very close relationship…bahahah…


He’s always up for a game of basketball with the guys (read that as DAILY)…

    What an awesome post! That Joel is one lucky fellow to have such a loving, supportive spouse! I bet his wife has “still got it” too. 🙂
