Happy Birthday, Dad!

I posted about my dad's birthday on Facebook, but right after I did, I realized that I had frozen his age and posted it wrong. My dad would have been 70 years old today. Of course, I will have to check that...he had fudged his age to get into the army and it was always a little unclear what year he was born. The information I have says he was born on January 9, 1940, so that would have made him 70 today. Time plays weird tricks sometimes.

Anyway, Happy Birthday, Dad!  I miss you still.

This is a picture of my dad the first time he was in Germany in the early 1960s, I believe.
This is my dad the summer before he died, I believe (there's no date on the picture).  I tried to edit out the child with him because I didn't feel comfortable posting their picture, but I couldn't figure out how to edit that without editing my dad's face - hence the white blob on the right side.  I like this photo because my dad is actually smiling in it.  A big happy smile was a rarity for him.

  1. I love how you remember people so fondly.

    I still celebrate my mom's birthday and her passing. She's been gone for over 10 years.

    Fondly remembered, greatly missed, still loved are all those that have passed.
