It takes a lifetime to appreciate our fathers, and even then it is not enough. My dad has been gone for over 34 years, but the lessons he taught me remain with me today stronger than ever. Just you wait he would say. And, he was right.
I waited...and sure enough all the things he said were true. My dad, Bill Budnovitch, was a humble man. Born in 1907, he had a hard life. Had to leave school in 7 Th grade to work in the coal mines. He was everything..coal miner, assembly worker, porcelain sprayer, battery shipper and packer. Most of all he was someone who I knew would always take care of us, no matter what. And, he did. He could sing, and dance, play the harmonica, tell a good joke and fix or build anything I ever wanted. Thanks, Daddy.
This treasury is for you and all the wonderful dads out there. Be sure to listen to Eric Clapton at the end of the blog. He is on YouTube, singing, "My father's Eyes."
Maybe you will find something for your dad or something that reminds you of him in here...items from my friends and fellow artists on Etsy.
