Musings 147--Dad's 87 today...

Dad was born on May 30, 1919. That's 87 years ago, today...Memorial Day, the real one.

He is the most honest God-fearing man I know. Maybe that's why he has done so well. If that is the recipe; then, I am doomed, but that's another story.

A radioman on a C-47, Dad was on the crew of bunches of missions carrying the 82nd and 101st Airborne soldiers. He was in the D-Day Invasion.

Dad was a school superintendent for over 30 years and a farmer for 87 years. He has been married to my mother for over 60 years. Both are still going strong.

So Happy Birthday, Dad--only 13 more years to 100! You've been a great father and excellent role-model.
