Remembering

This was a fun day we had sometime in the '70's! We managed to stuff Dad back into his R.C.N.V.R. Uniform - even though he couldn't get the top done up, the pants were fine! Mom even swooned all over again!

I am proud that my dad, a landlocked-farm-boy, volunteered to join the Navy during WWII. He spent a lot of time feeding the fish in the Atlantic.

I am happy to take the time today to remember all the men and women that have sacrificed their lives, that we may live the lifestyles that we have today.

Sis, I wondered if you had a copy.

What a fun photo. Your parents were quite the characters. My gratitude to your dad. And am I wrong in seeing a strong resemblance between your mom and your sister?

Thanks Hilary. Not wrong at all.
