Happy Fathers' Day Dad!
This is an old photo of my father that I made into a birthday card.


Ah, the '70s. My dad and me.


Gulp, the '07s. Dad and me now.

I feel so fortunate that my father is still here to share my life, his stories and our adventures. Frankly, I can't imagine him not being here. How wonderful it is to find a best friend in a parent as you both get older.


I know that he was not so lucky with his own father. My grandfather died when my dad was only 11. Through my father's stories, I know that Kenneth was a charismatic and very likeable person. I'm so sorry I never knew him, and that my dad wasn't able to have an adult relationship with his father. I can see by the twinkle in his eye that my grandfather must have been a blast.

Happy Fathers' Day all!

  1. What a great blog Leslie!!! I love all the photos... so glad your camera is treating you right. There is an option you can add to blogs, it's a calendar that will highlight the dates you entered new posts. And don't forget to add to your description a daughter-in-law, too! ;)

  4. You know, your dad has a mystical look in his eyes... Part Hemingway... Part preacher. I could easily see him hiking along a sun-blasted ridge in New Mexico, or taking up the collection in a small country church. He inspires that kind of confidence.
