Happy Birthday to My Dad

DSC_0002

My father turned 95 on December 7th. He was born in 1919 and has seen many changes in our world. I’m so thankful to have him around and in fairly good health for a 95 year old. He and my stepmom live independently in their own house. They go to the senior center every week (sometimes more than once a week) to play pool and bingo. When we visit we love to play this card game called Scat with them. I love to hear my father tell stories about growing up or when he was in China. Even though I have heard some of them before, I love to hear them over and over again.

So, Happy Birthday Pa! I love you!

Pat--Is that a recent photo of your father? If so, he looks marvelous for 95…I hope he had a great birthday.

Yes it is. It was taken 2 weeks ago. My stepmom is 89 and he is 95. They have been married for 24 years. I think love is keeping them both young! LOL
