The Way we Were

Someone gave Dad a copy of The Way we Were and said "do you recognise anyone in the photo". Straight away Dad said that's me on the front row!

Anyone recognise Dad ....

He's the little indian in the centre on the front row. The photo was taken in 1943 at the St Paul's Institute in Mount Pleasant, Fenton.  Dad would have been around 9.  He's not changed that much ... you can still see his ribs now!

The full article from the Way we Were is below.

Happy Birthday Dad

It's Dad's birthday today ... he's 78 but don't tell anyone!  In fact he didn't want anyone to know it's his birthday!  He's gone off walking today to celebrate.

Well Dad .....

Happy Birthday !
