HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY POPS!


My papa is known for his generous heart, his borderline obsessive organization, and his giant glasses.


He's also a supernice guy. I will tell you a little story about that later.


But it is his 70th birthday--today!

Like Grandpa, Like Granddaughter...

Pops with me and Gail. I'd have to be around five, which would make Dad around 45. I think we were at some kind of fair...

At Aunt Jean and Uncle Bernie's after playing some poker. Mom and Pop must be around 45 or 46, as I still have long hair, which got chopped when I was seven.

Me, Gail and Pop with Aunt Jean's dog, Shannon, who I loved so much.

Look at these young men from the Year of the Pimp Hat...

My thoughts
-good job feather...you compiled quite a trip down memory lane!
-I love the super blue coat I'm wearing in the picture with you and Dad on the front steps...( I actually don't- I had quite a few ugly furry coats in my day- faux of course)
-I feel a little sad because of the people in the pictures that are not around anymore- like Mom, Uncle Bernie and Uncle Bill
- but mostly I feel happy that our Dad is 70. and you did a good job on this.
Love, Gail

What great birthday greetings to your Dad and my Uncle!! I love all the pictures. We're all grown up now and our families are growing - a new generation to love.
Terrific job Heather. You are right - Uncle Rick is a special father, uncle, grandpa, and brother.
