Happy Father's Day

My Calvin Klein Ad Dad. (One of the cousins provided the label--and it kind of fits!) No one is less "Calvin Klein Model" than my dad. He definitely would not approve of what I'm sure he would think is shallow, worthless work. He is a big believer in using your hands for hard work and your brains and work ethic to succeed. (Sitting around looking seductive or bored doesn't exactly fit into his idea of an honest day's work!)
And this was a couple of years ago around the time of my 50th birthday. I'm hoping I inherited his "always-look-several-decades-younger-than-you-really-are" gene. I fear it is a male thing.
I have to work at the bookstore on Father's Day. (You can blame him & my mom for my love of books!) I'm not going to make it to the farm to see him. Have you figured out that I forgot to mail him a card? Darn it! Hope that doesn't make me lose my spot as his favorite kid!! (Oh hush, you other three!) Love you, Dad! Happy Father's Day!

Great pics! Reminds me a lot of my father-in-law- the one that has the family farm I've told you about.
