Some of Daddy's Treasures


In the living room,  I have a secretary desk that is devoted to some of my
Daddy's treasures obtained from his years in international business.  In the
1960's he had quite a bit of business in both Israel and some of the Middle 
Eastern nations.  Travel in and out of these countries was a bit tricky and he
would carry more than one passport so that he would get past country restrictions.
Don't ask me how he did this, but he did have a close relationship with many
in Washington.  

Over the years, Daddy was gifted with many treasures from business
associates.  He was given a tiger skin, which was meant to be used as a rug,
but none of us were okay with it.  Our dog especially hated it.  It remained
carefully packaged up in the attic, but was brought out only if the giver came
 to visit when he was in the states.





Daddy also did quite a bit of business in Israel.  He was invited into the home of
the Dobkin family in Jerusalem many times.  They had a son who was starting to
apply to colleges in the US, and expressed an interest in attending Harvard.   
Daddy has some connections at the University, and offered to write a letter of 
recommendation for the college hopeful.  I do not know what the ultimate result
of this letter was, but the Dobkin family was very thankful and presented my
Daddy with quite a nice gift of antique glass found on an architectural dig in
Jerusalem.  




These artifacts were uncovered near Bethlehem from the first century 
 of the Common Era.  Daddy was an avid student of the history and the
architecture of the ancient Near East, so this gift had a very special 
meaning to him.

I'm thinking of Daddy today (as I do every day) and remembering
things that were special to him.  On this date in 2010, Daddy passed
away.  That year it was two days before Father's Day, and this year
it is two days after.  He led a fascinating life and died at the age of
93.  He sure was a great guy!

Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley

  3. I’m getting all teary reading about this, Susan, because as you know, I am in the process of going through my beloved father‘s things. Father’s Day was hard for me to get through, and dad‘s 95th birthday would have been next week. Our dads are our true treasures. How lovely that you have these wonderful things. Surround yourself with them and his love. You know that you still have it. Love to you, girl.

  9. My friend convinced me and i had no choice than to follow my friend advice,because i never dreamed of loosing my lovely Husband. And i contacted_________Robinson.buckler@yahoo.com, and i discussed with him all my problems and worries and so surprisingly,he told me that I’ll get my husband back a day after. I didn’t believed Him, until when i got home,the next day,my husband called me to inform me that he is coming back home…..So Amazing!! That’s how i got my back through spell casting and our relationship was stronger than ever. One of the price i was asked to pay was to tell it to the people around me that problems like this,can always be solved by Robinson Buckler So! my advice to you out there is to visit this same E-mail address,and tell him your problems too,if you are in any condition related to love issue or getting your ex back or and problem at all, pls Contact him and have a happy life.______ YEEEAAASSS!!!����������������������������������������
