It is lovely, when I forget all birthdays, including my own, to find that somebody remembers me. ~Ellen Glasgow
Happy Birthday dad! The old man has made it another year.
Dad’s birthday almost slipped past me this year. The entire family except for Nicole and Kyle has been laid up in bed sick. I mean sick, with strep throat, sinus infections, coughing, migraines, the whole nine yards. So the days leading up to today, were a bit of a medicine induced coma dream. Thankfully, we are all on the road to recovery, just in time for the weekend!
Every year we get out of my parents, are blessed ones. I try to remind Kyle of that, yet the kid has no clue how lucky he is to have his grandparents. Between Kyle, the dogs and the excitement of another year of hunting and fishing, are all what keeps dad ticking. Sounds like a plan to me!
Below is dad’s high school graduation picture from Ligonier Valley High School in 1968. This is one of those rare pictures of dad without his beard. If pictures wouldn’t have captured this smooth faced dad, I never would believe it.
Happy Birthday dad!
