spent a good portion of the day thinking about my dad… he was born on November 18… took this photo of a page in Then to Now: The History of La Salle, Manitoba

like so many veterans, Dad never talked about the war… this article is the most I ever learned about his time in the service…

in his youth he was quite an athlete, and although he struggled with lung issues from the time he returned to Canada, he always loved sports

I remember going to many events at the  arena to watch with him… he encouraged everyone… didn’t matter if they were our team or the other… if someone did something good, he clapped and cheered… and I still do that… what a wonderful life lesson

a few nights ago I was invited to my grandson’s volleyball game… for the first set he was on the sidelines cheering on his teammates…

later he did a great job serving

this shot came out kind of cool because he moved so fast, lol… 

my dad would have loved watching his great grandchildren play any sport… 

it is from him that the most important question I always have for the boys is did you have fun?
