Happy Father's Day

Feeling nostalgic and missing my dad. Was going through old photos on the computer this morning and not intending to post anything, but ran across the following and it's too good not to share. I only wish it included my big sister (2nd in the birth order) and mom.

(See if you can spot your blog host in his 'yute'... 1967-ish?)
 Clue: Think "Lloyd Christmas" in Dumb and Dumber. Go ahead. Take your shots people :)

Lost my dad in early 1990, shortly after losing my baby brother sporting the PEANUTS sweatshirt. Miss them both but hope to see them again.

Need to get ready for noon Mass. My 2-month-old baby granddaughter is getting baptized today!! God is good!... ALL THE TIME.


  1. God is very good.

    And the photo is endearing.

  2. Boycott Steven Colbert! He was Disgusting and degrading to our President and now to our First Lady,and to everyone else in their family . Patriotic Americans are fed up with the low intelligence and morals our news media is providing. They have no awareness of the loyalty, morals and pride of Americans fighting to keep our country free. It's very sad! What a mountain of ill-mannered, despicable trash is being dumped on Americans everyday. Don't you all have enough intelligence to recognize you're being manipulated? Everyone disrespecting our country, in any way, should be held accountable. Freedom of speech is precious to us all. When someone is maliciously attacking our President and his family, it should be firmly addressed. Our freedoms are based on respect for one another another. When there is no dignity and pride, our freedoms are not respected and we begin to lose our freedom.

  3. Based on your hints, I'm going to go with the fellow in the green shirt. You Dad looks like a fun guy. Ours was. He never said it but it's pretty clear now that one of his mottos was that negative energy is wasted energy. I hope I see them all again too.

  4. Nope, the goofier haorcut and missing front teeth in the gray. My brother Greg in the green is a very funny man though. Way funnier than me. As for my dad, he was a homicide detective in flint. Tough dude nut a softy with his kids. My mom was the disciplinarian. I like your dad's motto. Haven't always been successful following that sage advice,

  5. Like Dad, I also have the ability to shed the negative stuff pretty quickly. I remember many times when some tear jerker show would come on TV, he'd say, yea, this looks like a real screamer and find something else. Guess he had a lifetime of grief walking Italy, France, Germany during WWII.

  6. Did you hear that only 18 people came out to hear Former President Obama speak in Germany with Angela Merkel at his side? It's so obvious that Merkel and the German people really do not respect This phony guy , and as a matter of fact they loathe him. He's been running alive the world trying to get his legacy restored, after President Trump an "schlonged" him as being an embarrassment to America! . How will he ever ever get any respect back after Trump degraded him and made s fool out of him and his failed policies?

  7. What a handsome family. Hope you enjoyed your Father's Day.

    Congrats on your baby granddaughter's big day.
