Happy Father's Day!

"When I was a girl of fourteen,
my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand
to have the old man around.  But when I got to
be twenty-one, I was astonished at how
much he had learned in seven years."  
~ Author unknown

I am so grateful to still have both my parents here.

My dad has always been there for me, in good times and in bad. He has bailed me out with a helping hand when trouble hits and has celebrated my successes when few others seemed to care. I am the oldest of four siblings and like with most kids, it wasn't always smooth sailing. As time goes on though, our father/daughter differences have become less, as our bond grows ever stronger. Thank you so much for all the love and support you've showered on me over the past half+ century, dad! I love and respect you dear father, mentor and friend ~ with all my heart!

Here are some recent photos of my dad, 'Big Al' Sandy.

And to All Dads Everywhere!!
