Dad's birthday


Recommended Posts

Today is dad's birthday, he would have been 85.  Here is a photo of him doing what he loved best.  Hopefully Jesus is taking care of all his hay equipment repairs now.  That used to be my after hours job during haying season, LOL.

Feb 12th would've been Dads 79th if not for cancer claiming him a few years ago. Wish I had a pic of him handy to post with the '53 H but don't have one. I've still got repairs to do for him Jere, your pic brought back some nice memories. Pat

Jere, today would have been my Dad's 92nd birthday. what a coincidence! here he is doing the job that was his, in the mid '70s. I plowed, Mike disked and sprayed, and Dad planted. I still have the 656 Hi Utility he is driving. Dad died in Nov 2008, the night before the National IHCC auction was in western NY.

I never realized we shared the date. happy birthday, LD and Don.

Guys - my dad would have been 92 also on Feb 2. We lost him 18 months ago - he was plain worn out. He was no farmer but he married a farmers daughter and Mum never lost her love for the land and passed that onto me and one other brother. I think to get into your 90' s is a credit.
