My Memories of Dick Harrison by Marci
Dick was the cool Dad in the neighborhood. Dick didn't mind spending time with the kids and he was willing to give us a ride when we wanted to go some place.
I have fond memories of Dick taking us girls out uncle wiggly road as we called it to the riding stables he always made it fun with all the humpty dumps. Holly and Anna would always make me sit up front with Dick because he would slap anyone who sat there on the thigh real hard and say in my case My ya Harce meaning Hi ya Marce.
Dick was a good sport he would eat anything we fixed him. Holly and I used to make Dick what we called minno eggs which was short for minute eggs because it only took a minute to cook them in a pan full of hot bacon grease. He had peanut butter on his toast. We were just learning to cook and thought this was great fun.
My favorite Dick song was Momma, Momma, Momma what makes you so mean. You washed my teddy bear in the washing machine.
Dick was always ready to share a joke or a song and I can't remember him ever getting angry as most of the other Adults did.
I can remember the names of the other Fathers in our neighborhood but that is about all not one made the impression that Dick did, he was a really great guy.
I am sure he has a place In God's rhythm section and is making everyone laugh as he did when he was here with us.
