Happy Birthday Pop (140/365)


“My father didn't tell me how to live; he lived, and let me watch him do it.”

Clarence B. Kelland (American Writer, 1881-1964)

TIME:  Unknown
PLACE:  A photo booth - Location unknown

My father was born in St. Louis, Missouri on this day in 1942.  That makes him 67 years old.  He was born to 1st generation Sicilian-American parents and was the youngest of 4 siblings.  Dad shares his birthday with singer, Joe Cocker (65), singer-actress Cher (63) and rapper, Busta Rhymes (37) to name a few.  He still is working full-time as a project estimator for a construction company.  At least twice a week, he works out at a fitness center, usually with my older brother.  On the other days, he likes to ride his bicycle on our town's bike trail.  He is a wonderful person and father.  I am lucky to have him as my Dad.  Happy Birthday Dad...I love you!

bentonflocke - Geneology and vintage family pictures are another one of my passions.
