Nothing like a horse to bring everyone together.

I'm the one in front, then Pam and Brenda.

All cowgirls in the making.

Where Would We Be Without Our Parents?

My grandparents were both hard working people. Who lived on a farm most of their lives.
As you can see my grandmother had an attitude. She lived to be ninety-six and was a small little lady with a never stop drive to get what she wanted.
My grandfather died when my dad was in the military so I never got the chance to meet the man. Luckily, my father had a number of brothers who never married and lived with my grandmother. They were like my grandfathers.
Both of my grandparents were the first of their family to be born in America.

Meet a Girl

Now how could you resist a pretty girl like this?
My dad dated my mom for a number of years before they got married.
She had a smile that could light up a room.
He loved her until her dying day.
You did good, dad.

A Car

Why is that we all love to have our picture taken next to our car?

Is it because it is one of the biggest purchase we make?

As you can see my dad was a looker. A man of simple means, he enjoyed his ride and changed his own oil on almost every car he owned.

What a man.

June Celebration

This year my father turn Ninety.

To celebrate his life, I plan to show off a number of old pictures and let you in on the wonderful people in his life.
This picture is of my father while he was in the military. He served in World War II. He had a several brothers who also served in the war. One was part of the team that held load the bomb that was dropped on Japan. While another one landed on the beach in Normandy.

Luckily for us, they all returned from the war.

Hope you enjoy this tribute to my father. He, like so many men of his time, are or were awesome.
