Happy Sunday and Father's Day to anyone falling into that category today! I had forgotten about Father's Day until my daughter called to wish my partner greetings. Having spent a week with my Dad last week when he was hospitalized out of town, I had the opportunity to 'spruce up' his back deck with some sunflowers, a new birdfeeder and a welcome mat to leave as a surprise when he came home.Thankfully, I had several days to visit him while he was recovering in hospital. He turned 85 on May 31st and I'm happy to say has recovered from his illness!
While I was at my Dad's I found a series of photographs - here's one I am particularly fond of of my Mom and Dad taken in 1946 while they were dating (taken at Banff National Park, Canada)
My Parents - circa 1946
Love your socks Dad!!!

The Blind Date - digital illustration
From 39-46 I was SINGLE and believe me, I went through several blind dates via the on-line dating services. I always chose to meet at Starbucks as it was public, daylight, and a quick 'first live interview'. There were several times, I wanted to run the other way as soon as I walked in the door. This little illustration attempts to depict those times.
