I thought maybe I could start my own series of posts centering on some of my favorite things.
(Just typing that makes me start to sing, "Rain drops on roses and whiskers on kittens". )
This is my favorite photo of my parents. (Taken at the North Bend Boat Club, where most of the frivolity happens)
It is very rare to even see a picture of the two of them together...Dad was usually at the grill or standing around with his life-long friends with a beer (in the early years, before he got diabetes) and Mom would be sitting playing Euchre or some other "women's" activity at our get-togethers. It was rare for Dad to even POSE for a picture. Usually the photo has Mom smiling pretty and Dad looks like he is uncomfortable and eagerly awaiting the end on the picture-taking.
And this photo shows just how tall Dad was. (Or just how short Mom is!)
Since Dad died, this photo has been on our fridge. I love you, Mom. And I miss you, Dad.
