Everyone is posting photos of “dad,” so here’s mine. I don’t have a lot to choose from. We didn’t have digital cameras in those days, or smart phones, and we didn’t record every get-together and holiday. But this one was on the occasion of three new grandbabies born between September 10 and October 5 in 1961. Dad wasn’t all that experienced holding babies, as you can see from the shape of his hands. He was the oldest of nine, so of course my mother thought he must love kids! He was 48.
