"Will you still need me?" – Always

He’s known as a basher, a blogger, a CPA – but, one of the first things I learned about my partner-in-blog is the title that best fits the man is “lil Sop’s Dad”.    Roof Surfing – Sop survives Katrina is not just the story of Sop’s survival, it’s the story of “lil Sop’s Dad” saving “lil Sop’s” life.   It’s a great read any day and a particularly touching story to read on Father’s Day.

I couldn’t help but think of Sop’s relationship with lil Sop when I read Paul McCartney revived and rewrote “When I’m Sixty-four” as a tribute to his father, James.  Julian Lennon recorded the song as a tribute as well and his recording with McCartney joined is my Father’s Day tribute to “lil Sop’s Dad” and all others who would answer these lyrics with a resounding “yes”.

Will you still need me
Will you still feed me
When I’m sixty four

  1. Considering this “sweet” – like most everything I’ve written these past few weeks – spent some time in “drafts” before I realized I hadn’t hit the “publish” button, you get a pass on Mother’s Day greetings.

    Hopefully, I can wrap up a few of those still in drafts since I didn’t send you a new tie!

  2. OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOwweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee Well Nowdy that was just about as good a father’s day message as I have ever read especially having a Katrina story myself except with less tragic lost of home. Like many including Sop,Iloved your story brother, we all soul searched knowing Our Lord had future plans and purposes from our trials. We all recall our personal struggles,sacrifices and most of all our God given blessings.And hopefully we all now better know our new purposes. But one thing we all have more in common now than before Katrina is FAITH and the reality of the words, STRENGTH IN THE LORD !!! Better go do some swinging before I need a box of Kleenex.OOOOOOOOOOOOOOwweeeeeeeeeeeee
