some pictures

I finally got some of the early pictures of my dad. Be sure to check out the GQ ad!

My Dad as a teen. I call this the GQ picture. Because seriously — this could be a GQ ad.

High school graduation
My dad’s high school graduation picture. Looking at it now — it makes me see my eldest brother and my nephew.

  1. Very nice photos.

    I have some old pics of Mom and Dad–Dad in his Marine uniform, Mom with friends, before she married Dad. I want to put them in one of those scrapbook frames, the type that holds a number of photos.

    • Thanks! I would. I have a bunch of old photos hung up in my hallway and they make me very happy.

    • Hee hee! Thanks. He was quite a handsome guy. And as he grew older, he just got more cute.

  2. Very handsome. And I mean handsome in the “you gotta be kidding me” kind of way. But I’d have been off by at least 10 years if you’d made me guess his age in any of those.

    • I know! That’s my dad! But he’s *gorgeous*. We were really happy to find these pictures, and I’m so glad I took the time to take digital photos of them so I now have copies of them.

    • Haven’t a clue what you’re talking about (she says with just that smile.) *G* And thanks.

  5. I can see you!

    I’d only seen your dad in his older, grayer (thinning hair) years, but from his youthful photos, I see lots of bits of him that came out in your face. Those dimples and that smile, the dark eyes… neat to see!

    • Re: I can see you!

      Thanks! I can really see my older brother in those pictures as well. There is a strong family resemblance between all of us, I think — my mom and my dad and I.
