My Dad

This photo was taken when my dad joined the Navy. The year was 1942, he was 17 years old. I love this picture of him. My dad loves root beer, his rose bushes (which he inherited from his father Otto), butter pecan ice cream, his dog Deuce, living by the ocean, and Sallie ~ my mom ~ his wife of 61 years. Happy Father's Day Dad!

OH my gosh...61 years? That is amazing. I was reading your post and thinking of how many of us who did one today had dads who served our country. You must be so proud of your daddy. Wow...61 years!

I love this picture of your dad, too. Your parents have been married for 61 years? How cool. What a sweet and loving post!
