Just A Boy On A Rock

He's just a little boy sitting on a rock. In this picture, he was only 2 years old.

He would have been 85 years old today. He rode a Harley as a messenger in WWII. He worked for the same company for 45 years. He was a goalie on the company's hockey team. He loved cars, and music, and dogs; but he really really loved his budgies. He enjoyed being at home, watching TV. He loved Christmas, and decked the house out with displays and lights.

He loved his family.

He may have been a little boy sitting on a rock, but he was also my Dad, and today marks the day that he was born. Happy Birthday, Dad, and I hope you are looking down and smiling. xx

I'm sure he is smiling down at you. How could he not?

I hope he made friends with my dad who's been up there since 1966.
