Fathers Day 2017

I haven't posted this photo in 11 years so I can reuse it now without boring you. This is my dad's high school graduation picture from 1935. It doesn't look like the way I remember him except for the eyes and the high forehead.

He was intelligent, as the picture suggests. Unfortunately he later suffered from a bipolar condition that caused him to retire early, so some of his brilliance went unused. But my mom stuck with him and they both lived into their 80's.

Today is also Sunday so here's a church for the InSpired Sunday linkup.
Bethany UMC, Purcellville, VA


  1. A wonderful photo of your Dad Linda. He was very handsome. A pretty church too.

  2. Nice picture. I am sad to say that I dont have any similar ones of either of my parents - I suppose thats the consequence of long distance migration!

  3. Your father was a very handsome man.

  4. Your father looks quite distinguished in this photo.

  5. Life has some interesting gliches that affect our lives. This is a fine looking dad. And a great looking church too.

  6. Good to pay tribute to your dad. I like that church.

  7. Imagens antigas sempre são belas.
