Comments: Jeans...

Graet story and yes a fitting end to the jeans. Yes it would have been his birthday. If still with us on this earth no dout we all would be together building a fire a celebrating his and mom's birthday as we so often did. He would have been proud to see those pants go.

As usual you make me laugh, go awwww, then cry. Don't worry you didn't fail your dad, no child can, unless they are truly horrid to their parent, and I seriously doubt you were. Wear your shorts proudly!

The only guy I know who can spin such a heart warming story out of a torn pair of jeans!
