Happy Birthday Jimmy Lee

Today would have been my dad's 65th birthday, had he lived. He passed away back in 1991, almost twenty years ago. I was a total daddy's girl as a kid. So much so that family would call me Jimmy Sue (My dad being Jimmy and me having the middle name of Sue).

 

Here we are dressed up and ready to go to the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, probably around 1970 or 1971. Maybe this was the year I met Johnny Cash! Check out my dad's awesome sideburns.

 

Here I am now almost the age my dad was when he passed away and I do wonder what he would think of the grown up me. I regret that he only knew me as a pain in the butt young lady. I do hope he knew how much I really loved him, even as much as we could fight and bicker. I've always been hard-headed, and a lot like him.
