Yesterday was my dad’s birthday. He was born on May 12, 1906, in Tomah, Wisconsin, and died on March 3, 1967, in Coppell, Texas. He was the youngest of five boys. He served in the Navy during World War II and once worked at the Dearborn Brass Works in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. This is one of the few photos I have of him and me. I think I was around 16 when it was taken.
We had some happy days and some not-so-happy days. This was one of the happy days. If he saw this post, he would probably say, “You’re a day late and a dollar short.”
And I hate to admit it, but you know what? He would be right.
