A Birthday Tribute...


This was my father when he was either 8 or 9 years old...my nephew Chase looks exactly like him.
My Grandmother Elsie had twelve children, my father was #5 and the second of only 4 boys...can you imagine living in a house with 8 girls?

I'm not sure how old he was when this beauty was taken, I'm guessing maybe 10th grade...isn't it marvelous? It's my all-time-favorite!
And this is a picture of him in his Navy uniform...wish I knew what happened to all his Navy gear...sure would love to hoard...I mean have some of it.
And here's what he looks like now, surrounded by all but his two youngest grandchildren.
Happy 68th Birthday dad...you're still one handsome dude! XOXO
