So, today would have been my dad's 77th birthday - he passed away back in 2003. Last year I did a post for him - and it also happened to be my 300th post (wow, I can't believe I have done over 400 posts since then). So today, I decided to repost the post from last year. I hope you like it!
So this is post #300 and it falls on what would have been my dad's 76th birthday. So I decided to post some interesting things. There is a picture of him at around age 7, on a horse (he is not thrilled - there is one of his younger brother and he is much happier). There is a jigsaw puzzle, which was his birth announcment - I think it is so cool. At the time, my grandparents made a living making jigsaw puzzles - later my grandpa would open a radio/tv shop - if anyone here remembers North End Radio in Tacoma - that was their store). There is a picture of my parents cutting their wedding cake, and a couple of him with me. There is one of my dad, my mom, me, my aunt, my grandma and our cat, Mog (sorry for the horrifying fashion by the way - I was a teen in the 80's.) And, there is a photo that my dad took from inside an ice cave on Mt. Rainer (you can see the main peak in the distance). My dad was from Tacoma, WA, so he lived near there. He was also an amazing photographer - even though this is a picture of a picture (and not taken under the best conditions) you can tell how awesome it is. I think it is one of my favorites that he took.
Right now I am on a borrowed laptop - similar to the one I am getting. So I should be able to do some visiting this weekend.
Anyway, here are the pictures - Happy Birthday Dad - we miss you!
