Photo of the Week - "Father"

The same uncle who took the photograph I posted in honor of Mother's Day of my mother and I also took this photograph of my father and I. In honor of Father's Day, I post it here today. I am pretty sure, judging by the little dress I am wearing, that this was taken on the day I was baptized; I was 6 weeks old, and he was 22 and a few months. I always thought that my Dad is one of the handsomest men in the world.


He is 71 now, but he still runs miles and miles with his dog every day. I don't know if he intends to run any marathons this year, but he ran 2 last year. If you were to see him today, you would be able to recognize him from this photograph. (Me... not so much!)


I still think he is one of the handsomest men in the world.

he's pretty handsome alright! And he looks to be kind too. A winning mixture.

What a lovely photo of you with your Dad and, yes, he is quite handsome. He must be very fit to have run marathons at 69 and 70 years old. How proud you must be of him.

Great picture. Quite amazing that he can still run marathons. He must keep with a strict diet and exercise program. Smart, and handsome man!

I don't think I've heard you mention your dad before, but I'm happy that you have such a good relationship with, and admiration for, him. He is a handsome man, as you say, and apparently still quite fit, judging from his continued activities.
