Happy Father's Day

Happy Father's Day, Dad!

I'm very grateful to my dad for the love and pride and encouragement he has given me over the years.

Since my photo albums were in storage when we were in Hawaii, I couldn't share any photos from before the invention of the digital camera. Now that I have them back, I can flip through the pages of our family history...

This has always been one of my parents' favorite photos. My dad and I are watching the fish in a small pond by the Four Seasons hotel in Albequerque, NM.

Los Alamos, NM, 1974.

Hard to believe I used to wear one of those blue and gold cub scout uniforms, too. (Oh, and the Navy used to allow beards :-) ). San Pedro, CA, 1980.

I am also very grateful to see what a wonderful, fun, loving Grandpa my dad has become for my boys.

We look forward to seeing you again next month, Dad!

He's a great Dad and Grandpa. You're a great Father two. I have two great fathers to model myself after!
