“Who’s thaaaat?” I asked with my three-year old heart filling with love.
“That’s your father when he was in the Navy!”
I sat and stared at that picture for the longest time.
My dad was an incredibly handsome man, and I adored him. I still do. And he is still the handsomest man I’ve ever known.
Today would have been his 100th Birthday.
Dad loved this picture. Mr. Whiskers. 1917-2000

Today would have been my mom’s 97th birthday. She’s been gone a while now.
She was a singer in her twenties, well known locally for her smoky, sultry voice. According to one version of my parents’ “how we met” story, Mom was performing when Dad fell in love.
This was one of her favorites.
Happy Birthday Mom! I can still hear you singing.
Even though every day at my house is Dog Day, I figured I hadn’t posted a picture of Duncan in a while. Here he is, the Devil!
Damn! You caught me looking at the camera!!!
