All of the best years of my life involved you. I watched you grow from a careless teenager, and now I’m seeing you as the most loving and amazing father.. a man who works and comes home to his family and makes sure we sit down together at the dinner table every single night. What an amazing transformation for one to witness. You make me want to rip my hairs out on most occasions but I never loved a single soul harder than I love you and our family. Happy 30th birthday to this OLD MAN I would do anything in this world for. @kevralph#myoldman#birhdayboy
Exactly three years ago today a piece I wrote about my dad went online on Ted Kessler's My Old Man website. It was the last post that year, and people - friends and strangers - said the nicest things. It's no longer on the website because Ted chose it to appear in a book alongside tales of the fathers of a mix of writers, artists and musicians. Here's the hardback and paperback versions. Swipe for evidence that I appear just after Shaun Ryder. Swipe again for the photo that accompanies the writing - a picture of my dad in a bonnet circa 1976. #dad#missmydad#everysingleday#talesofourfathers#tedkessler#myoldman
My old man. Feel the callous on his hands, and plaid button downs. My old man. Now I finally understand - I have a lot to learn from my old man. Now I'm a giant. I have a son of my own. He's always trying to go everywhere Papa goes. I'll do the best I can to raise him up the right way - hoping that he one day wants to be like my old man. 'My Old Man' - Zac Brown Band .
