Dad's Glory Days
Dad's socks were done in time for Father's Day, but I couldn't give them to my Dad. Unfortunately, we had colds in our house and my parents would just as soon not catch one. I called Dad up though and we had a nice chat on the phone for over an hour.
Last time we visited Dad gave me some old photographs of himself. (Click for bigger.)
Wasn't he cool? The writing in the dust on the bottom of the car reads "Luella loves Chester." That young couple would be my future godparents. It tickles me to see evidence that my oh so proper aunt was once young and giddy in love.
Here's Dad on his motorbike:
There are two things that I notice in this picture. First, my fashionable pop has a chain attached to his wallet. Second, there are two young ladies discretely watching from the window.
I'm really glad to put these photos of my Dad on the internet. It's nice to have one's glory days remembered...
