This was my Great Grandpa - (on my dad's side)
He was a sea-farer turned farmer. As a kid, I was always fairly scandalized by the fact that he had an EAR RING!
And then I went to college - all the guys had ear rings. Oh, no big deal GG.
This is my grandpa - my dad's dad - he and Grandma lived on the same property that we did - my sisters and I spent many hours at grandma & grandpa's house -
We'd run over and pretty much barge into their house - I don't think I was ever told to knock...
Now, I wonder if they ever had any privacy...
This is my dad as a young man. He was running the tractor that pulled the threshing machine (we had a wheat farm in North Central Washington)
It's a hard life, but guys are still doing it - so it must be fulfilling.
I was about 10 years old in this picture.
My dad died when I was 26. There are so many things I wish I had asked him.
Happy Father's Day daddy.
