HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DAD!
My Dad and his oldest brother Chuck went on an annual fishing trip. They did this for years after us kids were grown. Then they started inviting my oldest brother Danny. Next thing you knew my husband was joining them on their trips. In 1998 they rented a houseboat and fished the California Delta. The above photo shows my Dad on the boat with his Notre Dame shirt. My Dad was a true Notre Dame fan -- even though we lived in California, he would receive a copy of the South Bend Tribune newspaper every day during football season and spring football. Our mailman was not a happy person carrying all those newspapers, especially the very large Sunday paper. We left a candy bar and soda for him in our mailbox while he walked his route. Such fun memories!
Happy Birthday, Dad! We love you and miss you!
