... Follow me and I will make you fishers of men...St. Matthew 4:19

Go linger strong
In glory Dad,
With fingers long
Around a carving knife...
Make a wooden fish
Bigger than life~
The best heaven's had,
In God's kingdom above.
Sending fondest wish
Signed with my love,.
Happy birthday, dear Dad.
Poetry by me, AJP

    A beautiful and touching poem goes with this lovely SP. I believe I have seen that wonderful fish before in another shot. Your father was a very talented carver, and his daughter is a very talented photographer/poet. Beautiful.

    He had a long life and was a great artist! It must take a lot of patience to make carvings like that!

    Andrea, there are so many things I could say. The weathered planks on the right support the several themes suggested here. A friend of mine, Jim Havron, will be 101 on August 8. He was born "8-8-08." I'm on my way to see him. Thanks for the reminder.
