Looking back, my Dad has always had a really funny personality. Michelle and I were talking about a time when my Dad and my brother John were helping me move out of my college apartment two hours away from home. After we had loaded up the truck that John was driving back home full of my stuff, my Dad pulls out a bundle of ropes and says "Hold on. My son is not going to look like one of those idiots with their tarps flapping all around the freeway" and proceeded to tie down every square inch of the back of that truck! In the end, I think his son did look like a different kind of idiot on the freeway. The kind that looks like is hauling Shelob's lair around.
My Dad is also looking for either a husband for Michelle or a wife for my brothers. He apparently thinks any unmarried person of the opposite gender would be a good match for any of them.
One last random thing to throw in---speaking of dating people---John is dating a gymnast and we were all together not long ago. While Lia (super sweet girl) was talking about gymnastics, my Dad says "You know, I'd really like to get one of those gymnastic outfits." It was meant to be funny and it was. We never did get out of him if he wants one with leggings, or without?
