This is a photo of my Father,
who passed away at the age of 46 on May 29, 1980...
I can hardly believe that in a few days he will have been gone for 28 years.
Here is a cool old photo of my Dad with his Dad way back in the 30s,
Because my Dad died in his mid forties, I have assumed that I have been living in what I have called the bonus time.
and when I actually made it to 50,
I breathed a sigh of relief.
Tomorrow I am going to yet another funeral.
BradHughes, who I had known for over three decades, died of Cancer at the age of 53, leaving behind a wife and a very young daughter, who is about the same age as my youngest son.
The worst thing about LIFE,
is the unpredictability of your term..
which is why you need to enjoy it,
However I realised the other day, that because of this silly blog, someday my kids may have children of their own, and my future grandchildren will not need to stare blankly at some crappy, old, musty, sepia, photo, and wonder what their Grandpa was like.
All of these postings and comments will give them a pretty good idea of what I was like...
in fact, they will prolly know far more about their Grandpa (and even Great Grandpa) than they ever wanted to know...
That is cool though isn't it?
This was my zany Grandfather
