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.
