Happy Father's Day and a tag

Happy Father's Day to all the men out there that have been blessed with being a father.
My dad passed away 3 years ago. There is not a day that goes by that I don't think of him.
I don't have many pictures of the two of us together (movie camera's became popular when I was a kid). I'm not sure how old I was in the picture above. What I see is how my dad held me up then and still lifts me up now.

My dad was a barber and this is a picture of him cutting my oldest son's hair. I wanted my dad to give the first haircut. Since we lived in California and he lived in Florida, the hair was quite long for the "first cut". My son is a father now to 3 precious little girls and I'm so proud of the man he has become. Happy Father's Day honey!

This is my youngest son getting his first haircut in our garage in California. Love those curls!
I call this day "Happy Uncle's Day" as he is a mighty fine uncle. He thinks his nieces Rock!
Happy Uncle's Day sweet pea!

Of course, Happy Father's day to my hubby. You are a terrific father and grandfather. You love unconditionally and the kids love you right back.

And now for the tag..... Katy Lin
at The Great Adventure has tagged me and I need to share some things you may not know about me.

But first the rules:

1. Link back to the person that tagged you.

2. Post the rules on your blog.

3. Share 6 unimportant things about yourself.

4. Tag 4 people at the end of your entry.

6 things you may not know about me

1. I will sing at the drop of a hat (off key and always with the radio).
Make a joyful noise even if it is horrible sounding!

2. Last year at this time, I wasn't sure what a blog was.

3. I can eat like a horse (I don't look like it but I can pack it away with the best of them).

4. I'm afraid of motorcycles but would love a scooter. Preferably a vintage Vespa.

5. I love my age. 54 and counting!

6. I do a happy dance daily.

Now, I tag Stephanie
Amanda Jo

Have fun!

Barb!! Thanks for tagging me! I am SO excited! I just posted my info so go check it out!

I too am a car singer! My poor hubby gets to enjoy it all the time. Poor guy rolled his eyes when I told him I joined the choir at church.

I love blogs like this...I got to learn a lot about you today! Thanks for sharing all of this - the pics are great!

I lost mine too - I know how it is. But as my mom used to tell me at least I had him for as long as I did. (he'd been an orphan since he was nine) Thanks for visiting my blog.

These pics are great...what a wonderful legacy!

Although I don't know you very well and exactly for that reason, I have tagged you. Come by and check it out.
