An Image of Dad

From the Blogmaster (or Blog Mistress, as the case may be)

This picture was sent by Mom (Dick's wife) to me last week. It's dated about 1957--when Dad was about 16 years old--posing with his swim buddies.

There are some things I've always known about Dad.

He's just a little bit off-center. He looks at life at a slightly different angle, which I think is healthy.

He's a showman. He's not afraid to be noticed. He's confident, but not cocky.

He may only stand 5'7", but his personality is over 6' tall.

I like to think I inherited some of this...and am able to pass it down to the next matter how weird it looks.
