Happy Father's Day

This year for Father's Day, my Mom told Daddy that he should get whatever he wanted for Father's Day.  He just happened to find a beautifully restored 1941 Plymouth.  He had driven a 1941 Plymouth when he was young.  A friend told my Mom that next year she should just get him a card.

Yesterday I took photos of Daddy with his new Father's Day gift trying to recreate this old photo of him with his car. We had fun doing it.

Today is Daddy's 59th Father's Day.  I know because I have been around for every one of them.  I have spent most of my life working along side my Daddy.  Here is proof.  I learned the auto body trade very young.

How Long Have I Been Sanding

Through the years some of the things that I have learned from my Daddy are the importance of having God in your life, and how to work.  Here are some photos of Daddy working through the years.

Happy Daddy's day.  Some people have fathers, but I have always had a Daddy.
