Hello everyone! Happy news! My Dad is much better! Recently, I did a post for Joy & Henry and in the comment from their son, Henry told me that his Dad always looks for photos of my Dad's garden...so I have some here for you!
A few years back, I asked my Dad to pose in one of his favorite hang outs, the local hardware store! He teased the owner, Paul, that there wasn't one single place in which to write his check, so Paul rigged a clipboard to the side of the counter just for my Dad! He calls it his office! (So funny!)
Also, from years back...Daddy is posing here on his April birthday with two of his grandsons, my nephews, Ian and Sam. (Look at my Dad's arms, that comes from years of hard work!)
Dad loves his cell phone! I took this photo of him on his front porch on the same day as the one above on his birthday. See the beautiful rose bush beside his porch? It is such a gorgeous color beside his blue house, you can also see it in the photo below.
I couldn't find a photo of Daddy on his tractor...but I did find a tractor photo for you! This was taken one year at the tractor ride that they did before the Sunflower Festival, which was held just down the road from my Dad's. I miss that festival! Hope they bring it back one day!
Well, doggone, how did this cowboy and his dog get on this post? That is our son, Christopher! (With Max, I think, belonging to my brother and sister-in-law.)
Oh, leaving you a photo of my Dad's canned potatoes... and he grew all these potatoes himself! The jars go about 10 deep on that shelf. The cabinet has to be be specially made to hold the weight. These potatoes just taste so good.
My Dad was born in 1927, the same year that the song "I'm Looking Over A Four Leaf Clover" was written. I love this song, it reminds me of him.
