Fathers Day.......

I hope you have all enjoyed your Fathers Day Weekend, and if you are blessed to still have your dad, hope you got to spend some time together!!! My dad has been gone 11 yrs. now, but there is not a Fathers Day that goes by that I don't miss him! I have soooooo many fun, great memories that I will always cherish! One being that he loved to restore old, vintage pick up trucks! He would work so hard turning them in to a real beauty......he did it all from the motor, covering the seats, to the paint and body work! If he were still here, I just know that he would have one for me to tool around and do my junkin in......and it would be painted "pink" with Girls Gone Junkin on the tailgate!!! I have to admit, that sometimes it makes me a lil sad that he is not here to be apart of my "junkin" adventures, but I know in my heart that he is smiling down on me, and someday I do hope to have that old vintage pick up truck......painted pink of course!

HUGS....Cathy aka GGJ


  1. What a wonderful sentiment. Hope to get to Canton one day maybe you will have that pink pickup by then...

  2. Hi Cathy, what a sweet post about your Dad, I lost my Dad when I was 15 and now I'm in my 40's and still miss him very much! I think you had a good ideal about the pink truck... I can just see you and Deidra loading it down with all of your chic treasures! Hope you have a wonderful week!!!
    hugs~~~ Daphne

  3. I say do it in memory of your daddy!
    My daddy has been gone for 23 years...much too long. He taught me to scrounge before scrounging was cool!

  4. Cathy, this was such a sweet post about your Daddy! I hope one day you will find that old truck and paint it pink!!
