Great Day For My Dad

My dad tells a dirty joke   YouTube

My father is impressed with his own accomplishment, which actually is pretty darned impressive. Last night his dirty joke on YouTube passed the million viewer mark! It’s heady stuff for a guy who predates video.

It’s not just the numbers, it’s the comments. To summarize, a lot of the commenters want to be like him when they’re 89.

Why not? He’s sharp. He’s funny. His obvious (and less obvious) physical infirmities, though part of him, don’t define him.

Being Harold Fox at 89 is a good thing.

I get a chance to put more on the hard drive soon. He’s coming to visit in a few weeks.

When I write about my dad, people always say I should cherish the time with him. I do. But my dad’s not coming because this is some final roundup. He’s coming because we enjoy his company and he ours.

It’s also a little warmer here than Milwaukee.

  1. cant wait for his visit and your posts about his visit. Also I hope he has some more dirty or not so dirty jokes. My husband is still telling the last one. Lol

  2. It is good that now he has the ‘freedom’ to get out and about. I am sure that he misses your mom, but he doesn’t have to stay home and think about it. He must have had a fairly good experience with his flights last trip.
    So now Helaine has another reason to cook—(like she needs one)
    Have fun.

  3. Geoff, Your Dad is the best! Yes, cherish the time you have with him. My father was not a good provider, not a good husband, and definitely not a good father….

    Can your Dad adopt me???? LOL

    Have a great day,

    Laura, Wallingford, CT

  4. I’ve been missing your dad stories and updates. Glad to hear he is doing well and getting ready for a return visit.

    I look forward to keeping up with the Fox visit.
