#21 – Pimp Daddy

Photo taken: January 31, 2013

My Dad was something else… and this is my favorite photo I took of him, which I used occasionally on my blog even before he passed last year.  So what’s the story behind this picture?  Well, Dad occasionally borrowed money off of me… and at my request, always paid it back in one dollar bills.  No, I don’t frequent the types of places you would need lots of singles for… I’ve long been an avid user of the website “Where’s George?” which allows you to enter, mark, and track where your paper currency goes throughout the country and even the world.  Ones obviously end up in change a lot, so they move at the fastest rate… plus, you can release more into circulation at the time.  So anyway… Dad brings me this stack of 100 one dollar bills… and being weird like he was, he sorted them out on the table by each of the twelve Federal Reserve Banks (That A through L letter on each bill).  When I came in and saw this scene of Dad laid out with twelve stacks of money in front of him… I had to grab the camera, and true to form, he hammed it up for me with the side glance and crossed arms.  Way to keep it real, Daddy Mack…

  1. what a super idea… was your dad a fan of thje nest too? I bet he was ;O)))

  2. I remember this one too – such a great photo and it’s cool to know the “back story” ! I bet you got your sense of humor from him right? RIGHT?????

    I’ve seen this photo before and it’s a good one. Nice story to go with it, too.

  4. Your Pops sounded like quite the character. Guess that old adage is true…the nut doesn’t fall far from the tree. 😍

    I like this photo of your Dad. Sounds like he had a great sense of humor, and what a neat idea for him to do that for you. 🙂

  6. A great photo! Thanks to out TV we also know the word pimp, with a white limousine here, too.

    • I don’t know if there are any pimps who ride in white limos, though you could probably pimp up a limo. Pimp is one of those great American words that has many uses and meanings… all of them a bit eyebrow raising.

    Heh, that’s the sort of photo that gets you noticed by the cops if you post it on Facebook…

  8. That’s a very cool idea, tracking your “singles” as they go. You must still miss your dad. I still miss my mom and it has been more than 30 years …

    • I do. The Where’s George thing is really neat. The guy who came up with the website is from your neck of the woods. It’s been around for 20 years now this month, though I didn’t discover it until 2002…
