Enjoy him while you can, mine would have been 102 but he's been gone quite a while. Wish he was still here, even if he would forget to wear his hearing aid.

My dad doesn't exactly forget to wear it.
He tells me he just can't stand stuffing that little embryo into his ear.

Just photos I found researching the Pacific Northwest. We're going to have some difficult years ahead with fewer fire crews. So far late season rains have helped but they can't be relied on.

thanks, that map is perfect. I wondered how your plains provinces grew so much grain but here I can see their dirt wasn't bull dozed South like Ontario's. You wuz robbed!

Want to wish your "Dad" a very "Happy Birthday" and a long and enjoyable life.........

I, also, will turn "79" on 25 April 2011.......always think of my dad who left us in 1989 @ 79.

Here's the results of "Fire" to the Homeplace where I was born and grew up.....went up in a July 4, 2008 fire. Firemen and neighbors could only stand and watch it go..luckily no one was living there.

That's sad and sadder yet when I saw the lovely location. I'm also sorry you both lost fathers. It stays with us.

I think you meant 2011. I'll hit 66 the day before you hit 79. I'm delighted not to be the oldest guy for a change.
