Today is my Daddy's 77th birthday. He was born in Kansas on the hottest day ever recorded in the state. The official weather service temperature in Fredonia, Kansas on July 18, 1936 was 121 degrees. He was born just a few miles away. I have heard stories from my grandmother about how they had to keep wetting sheets with water and drape them over the crib to try and keep him cool.
In honor of Daddy's birthday here are a few photos of him over the years.
Happy Birthday Daddy!!
