Happy Father's Day, MY HERO

Hi Again!

I found out some new information from one of my sisters (Sheryl) this morning!!

This was my Dad at about age 15 (maybe 16) ... sitting inside of his Dad's Model T. Initially I thought he was older... but he sure does look young here!! Apparently, he had always wanted to be a sailor and join the Navy! Isn't he just adorable with this sailor hat on! My Dad served in the Navy, during the Korean War on the USS Melvin 680 DD... We were all so very proud of this amazingly handsome and awesome man! The actual photo is a black and white picture, scanned and printed on NORMAL setting from my ink jet printer on white Copic cardstock. I colored him with my copics and cried the whole time! My sister, JOANNE is an amazing replica of our Dad. I knew when I was at Kohl's Department Store that this frame was made for this picture... but it needed some color!! I miss my Dad! I thought he was invincible!

He was and is and always will be .. MY HERO!!

PS... Last night was the first night my Mom stayed by herself in her new house.. alone. Please keep the prayers coming for her. We have all been surviving on your prayers and well wishes!!

Thank you so much!!
With much Love,

Blog Hop WINNER of the PKS 25.00 gift certificate!!

This is so cute. TFS. My favorite thing about my Dad is that he can talk like Donald Duck and on my wedding day 35yrs ago I was so nervous and starting to tear up and he started to talk in his duck voice and it brought a smile to my face and it lighted the mood as it always does and now he's been able to use it with my granddaughters and so it begins with a new generation. Take care and God Bless you

Congratulations, Vickie!! Please contact me at kathy(@)peachykeenstamps(dot) com. I will need your last name and your email address to send the gift certificate to.

MANY thanks to all that played along and visited our blogs! We all had a great time!!
