I'm combining ThrowBack Thursday ( a little late)

And Father's Day (a bit early)

This is my Dad.

He's been gone for 29 years but I still miss him and our great talks.

The photo was done in the early 1930's.

As you can see,

The photo has been hand-colored.

His eyes were blue, but not quite that blue,

Nor his lips that red.

I love the photo anyway.

I think it shows his kind and gentle spirit.

Happy Fathers Day.

Love those hand tinted pictures.. There is a softness about them. I have one of my sister and me when I was about six.

I have loved all the pictures you have shared of your dad. I miss my too. Myk was 3 when Dad passed away at 57, and Myk will be 50 this year. Heaven will be such a good reunion for us, won't it, Sue?

Father's Day is bittersweet, isn't it? Loving memories but a bit of sadness when our Dads are no longer with us.
