This is my first entry in the Thankful Thursday series. I want to clarify that this isn’t going to be in order of importance – it’s more dictated by whatever is standing out in my mind today. I’m very thankful to my parents, each of which I will go into with more detail. Right now, I want to focus on those who aren’t so obvious.
To the Allen Family – John, Marilyn, Kirk and Jeff. Jeff, Kirk and I shared many adventures as children. In many ways, it’s the kind of summer fun and silly adventures that I can only hope that my children have. I want to say thank you to the entire family for their warmth and especially their humor.
I don’t think my humor would have quite the absurdist bent it has today without the introduction of Monty Python and a host of other silliness at the Allen household.
Rest in Peace, John. You’re always missed.
