Father's Day

6-18-10 grateful brain
I am posting my Father's Day blog a few days early, since I will be too busy this weekend. This is one of my favorite pictures of Dad, my sister and I. I'm sure Mom was behind the camera. Dad would have been about 31-32 years old in this picture.

Next is another picture from my baby book. One of the first pictures in the photo section, so probably the first picture of Dad and I together. I have always thought that DAD is looking at me like I am an alien.... which it must have seemed like, since I've been told I had colic and cried a lot during the first 6 months of my life. (Sad to say my stomach still is easily upset if I don't watch what I eat.) Thanks for putting up with me Mom and Dad... A crying baby couldn't have been easy.... I'll remember this as I have to put up with you Dad, as you get more cranky!

Next is a unique picture of Dad and I taken in a automatic photo booth around 1958 or 1959 which was in the St Paul train station. It is unique that it is in a metal frame. It's about 4 x 3 inches high. I remember it well. We were waiting to board a train to travel out to Oregon to see Grandma and Grandpa.

This picture is one of the "treasures" I have kept in my safe over all these years.


  1. Judy, these pictures are awesome - you are SO very lucky to have such a wonderful father and such great memories. Love it.

  2. Thanks Renee, I know you speak from a different experience than mine..

  3. How nice of you to share these wonderful pictures of your father! From your description of him, he seems almost as special as my dad, who has had to put up with me all these years. I am the high maintenance child in our family and he still loves me!

    Thanks for a terrific post!

  4. My Dad and I didn't always get along.... then I discovered it was because we were so much a like... we clashed at times... Now happy that we have a wonderful relationship.

    Genevieve, I'm happy to say I have met both your Mom and Dad over the years... and you and Kelley are lucky for their love.

  5. Your pictures are wonderful treasures, Judy. That photo booth one is priceless!
