My Dad...

This is an all time favorite picture of My Dad...seemingly restraining me as my Mom took our picture at the Zoo.  Don't you love my high-water pants pulled up way above my waist?   Always the fashion icon...that's me.  My brother Bob is probably around 2 here...from what I remember he was 3 feet tall by the age of 2.  That puts this pic in the 1958 range...looks about right...all in black & white film.
 
We always went on family vacations & weekend or day trips.  We didn't stay in fancy hotels...it was motels where you parked right in front of your room.  There was always a cooler with soda & sandwiches & fruit for snacks along the way.  No fancy restaurants, either...but we had FUN & that's what it's all about.
 
Here's to my Dad...who died too soon at the age of 66...and to all the Dads out there...
HAPPY FATHERS DAY!
