My dad, at the beach (1955)

Sunday, July 17, 2011

Because it's a pretty day out there, and because I wish I was among the beachers, rolling and surfing and reading my book (which is Jennifer Haigh's Faith, at the moment), I post this 1955 photo of my dad — years before I knew him.

He looks happy and tan.  In other words:  he hasn't really changed all that much.

Lovely photo! You resemble your dad.

I've met your dad (well, been in his presence, really) and you're right ... he really hasn't changed much at all. Great picture!

What a wonderful photo! Thanks for sharing. He looks like such a nice man. And there is quite a bit of his good looks in your face. (And, yes, I'd so much love to be at the beach, reading to the music of the surf. Next to you would be even better!)

Wow, that looks like the cocoa beach pier near where I grew up. And Dad to be sure looks like he has the world by the tail.
