Isn't vacation the best? I know it never seems to last very long but it is still good. Last week my ederly parents put their nerves aside and flew out to see the family, it was great. It's hard to see your parents grow old, mine are in their 80's, but the spirit is still there. You might wonder where I get my silliness, well look no further then my dad. I took him to Bronco training camp on Tuesday, if you have ever been to Dove Valley you know th spectaors sit on a small hillside very close to the action. As I was helping my dad down the field to sit down and take in the action, he stops and announces on the top of his lungs that he is the only Chicago Bears fan here. Everybody got a big chuckle and decided to humor an old man.
However as my dad shouts this out ,of course I kind of duck my head and turn only to look up and see none other than Bronco great Champ Bailey standing about 15 feet away with a big smile on his face. He had obviously heard my dad make his loyality statement to the Bears and he stood there with a big grin on his face, I made my dad turn to look and Champ gave him a big tumbs-up, it was a special moment. However my dad says to me who was that, I told him the great Champ Bailey... long pause..he says WHO? Oh well he is a Bears fan and he is 86, but I love him... we had a blast.
