My father was my hero. We just understood each other. Jimmy Powers had great panache. He made an impression on everyone. You kinda just wanted to drink whatever he was having. He was a bit bigger than life itself or so it seemed. My father used to come into the kitchen from tending his glorious vegetable garden and say," I am just going to have myself a little "sneeky." Well it didn't take me long to figure out what that meant. So if you were ever curious where "the sneeky" came from that is how it originated. He would be so proud of all my sneeky concoctions and that the term sneeky is viral. To all you fathers out there Happy Fathers Day and please have someone make you a Sneeky. "Dad, miss you everyday. Think of you and either, laugh, cry or pour myself a sneeky. You would have loved twitter, fb and by golly Instagram. Toy Always, Your Lulu P.S. We used to call each other TOY which means: thinking of you!
