The rest is behind a cut. Lots of pics of Dad, me as a young child, relatives, and Dad's medals
Did I mention my dad was a Hottie? *laugh* Michael inherited his cleft chin.
1941-1944 - back of campaign pin
Masonic pin, honorable service pin, discharge pin, American legion and retired civilian military
World War II medal
The dad I remember
Great colorized pic
My dad did HIS OWN IRONING. Can you believe it?
Dad's parents - can you believe they produced a son that much taller than either of them? I'm honestly SCARED of how tall Michael will be. The growth predicters say by the age of 18 he'll be 6'7". Should I start pushing the basketball now?
Dad and his sister, my Aunt Margaret
Is it just me, or does the guy on the end look like Anthony Michael Hall back in the 80s? *laugh* That's dad on the left.
Me and Dad
Mom, me and Dad
Me and my second cousin, Sara:
My half-brother, Rick, as a kid. Keep in mind, he's actually about 20 years older than me.
Rick following in the family Navy tradition
My other half-brother, Larry, as a kid. Unfortunately, Larry is no longer with us.
My grandmother was always SO well put together. Dressed to the nines, very proper, hair always done and full makeup. It's how I'll always remember her.
My cousin, Dale
