Our son Mark has been down for a couple weeks, Son Jack can in last night. they are here to help dad celebrate his 75th Birthday.
(Jack on his tablet)
Since you only do this once, they want to be here to see if I can make it thru the whole day.
Life has been good to us as a family, very little health problems and accidents. For that we are grateful.
(Just to show that our TV does work)
Jack, the oldest was born while I was in the USAF and stationed in Biloxi, Miss., Mark was born a couple years later while still in the USAF but stationed in Kirksville, Mo. I am using the state abbreviations the way they were back then.
Funny how over the years how everything changes. I am amazed how old I have gotten in just a few years. LOL
We are looking forward to a lot of family fun, it is a joy to be with the boys.
(Mark declared dad would never cut his hair again, I cut it as long as he was home, but to my style, LOL)
Enjoy life, we must all take it as it comes. In these 75 years I have some regrets, but more happiness. I have been very fortunate.
(He was happy with the hair cut this time.)
So as I approach 75, something my Dad did not get to do, I am very happy over all with life. This is the Golden years, RIGHT?
Thanks for coming by the log.
It is hard to believe, they actually did dress up ONCE!
Tomorrow Birthday cards, today J & M say we will celebrate all day! (I be dragging worse than Lucy after her breathing test!)
Mark’s first car.’68 Malibu, I loved this car. It was originally powder blue, I painted it for him and built a center console for 8 tracks. It had a small 307 v8 I think.
