SOL16 Day 24 of 31: Remembering Dad

IMG_0785Everyone has a story and you can catch up on more slices for the  SOLSC at
Two Writing Teachers.

Dad would have been 93 today.  This is him as a young child, maybe 5.  He wore knickers.


This a photo from the Boy’s School he worked at inSouthern  California in the 1940’s.  After he and Mom married in New Jersey, they moved to Southern  California. Both my parents worked at this place.


One of my favorite photos of Dad and me. Dumbo ride  at Disneyland about 1956.  I think the structure in the background is no longer there.

Dad about 2000 in Arizona.  He loved working with wood and making cabinets. That shirt always cracked me up.  It was sold by the delegation of New Jersey teachers (his home state) at the NEA Conventions.

It’s hard to believe it’s been twelve years since his passing.  So many great memories.

    I love the pictures, Jone, especially that Dumbo pic. You are a cute little girl! I think your dad is the same age as my mom. She too, in April, would be 93. Thanks for sharing your dad with us.

    Great post. The loved ones we have lost make us stronger! I love the photos of your dad, I am from NJ and my son and daughter in law are now Californians. Rang a special bell!

    Oh, Jone, great post about your dad! I love the picture of you with him at Disneyland. And photos in our day were few and far between, so glad you have this one.

  6. Great piece in honor of Dad today. Loved your pictures and short anecdotes. Time passes quickly but the love we feel is forever. Be good to yourself today.
