Happy Birthday Dad

On this day 74 years ago my Father was born right here in Morgantown, West Virginia.

There are years when his birthday comes and goes and I forget about it, but for some reason this is not one of those years.

He left us nearly 20 years ago, but thanks to the simple fact that he had a video camera, all of those lost moments of time were not only captured as an image, but in video with sound so that we can see and hear him.

One of my favorite videos of my Dad other than the ones at the picnics was the one year he and Jean went to Florida in the Winter. There is a simple video of him simply being himself and getting some ducks drunk in Florida by dipping some bread into his beer and feeding it to them.

You don't have to read about it, witness it yourself.
