to my father

who is out of the country at the moment with mom {& thankfully safe!}, i want to wish him a very happy father's day across the miles! enjoy your day {& stay outta trouble, lol} pop! the snap below was taken not too long after we immigrated to the states... that's my sis jo {aka looney} to the left of pop & yours truly to the right. i think i must have been 2 still in this pic & my sis, one? gosh, how young our dad looks {he was about 24 or 25 at the time)! my nephew ian looks uncannily like his mother {jo}... & i still smile the same goofy smile after all these years!!! pop used to make us eat all our food... we couldn't leave the table until every last drop was gone... & i can remember my sis & i sitting at the kitchen table for a very long time {a nightly occurence}! you wouldn't know that by looking at this pic... while i don't remember this at all, i do remember us being practically in tears trying to finish our food. funny what the memory banks want to remember! anyway, happy father's day to all you fathers out there>>> may your day be filled with contentment & relaxation!
