My Pop!

On thursday I was able to travel from Huntington Beach to La Habra, California to see my 92 and half year old Pop. It’s been 10 months since I’ve seen him face to face. We had lunch at The Habit close to Cal-State Fullerton. My pop said he wasn’t hungry for lunch but my niece and I were so he said, “Okay let’s go. I’m going to pay because what else am I going to do with my money?” So when we got to the habit we all ordered the #1 and he ate the hamburger and every last fry! I get to see him again on Sunday before I head home on Monday night. He has aches and pains and still would rather be in heaven than here on this earth but doesn’t he look great!?

Another great Moisism (my dad’s name is Moisi in English) that we heard again today was…”he sold the house in Thirty Nine Palms instead of Twenty Nine Palms.” He will not be corrected on that and we don’t care…we love Thirty Nine Palms!

Hope you are all doing well. I fly back home on Monday night and hope to be able to visit you all later next week.

  1. What a wonderful photo of your Dad and what a blessing for you both to get to see each other!! Many blessings to your “Moisi” and safe travels northward come Monday.
    Blessings, Aimee

  2. Your Pop looks great, and sounds like he is still “fiesty”. My dad, who went to be with the Lord 3 years ago, would be 91 1/2 yrs old. So glad you got to spend this time with him again. It made me smile when you said he ate his whole meal–being with his daughters must have brought his appetite back. 😉

  3. Your Dad does indeed look great, so glad you got to spend time with him! We call my mom”s grannymawisms, ~smile~ Have a safe trip home,
    Blessings,

  4. What a precious picture of your Pop, Ellen!! I’m so glad you got to have lunch with him, and I’m sure it meant a lot to him!

    I’m saying prayers for a safe return journey for you, as well as the health of your brother-in-law and your Pop, too. 🙂

    Blessings,

    Denise

  5. Love this! It’s those quirks that stay with us and bring smiles for years to come! I love it when something reminds me of my dad.
