I was young once …

… and bald.

I’m in the process of digitizing some old photos. Right now I am working through a group that my aunt (Hi, Aunt Pat!) gave to me.

Not sure how old I am in this one – I am at my grandparents’ home in Grove City.

This was, and is, my happy face.

See you along the Trail.

Remembering

I often post a photo of a toast to my father on this day, the anniversary of his death in 1974. This year, I have been digitizing some old family photos. It seems appropriate to post a photo of my father. We were younger then.

Thanks, Dad. Miss you.
