Mom and Dad

Here are the people I admire most in my life. That's my mom Noreen and my dad John taken at Boulevard Lake here in Thunder Bay in 1940. That's one year before they were married and 4 years before I was born. Also in the picture is Dad's '30 Erskine(Yup that's a car name). This was his second car. He owned a model "T" touring before that. My father has been my life long inspiration and he taught me to "Try anything once". He will be turning a ripe old age of 90 this coming August. My mother sadly passed away in 1974 when I was only 30. Dad since re-married and will be celebrating a second 32 year marriage this June to my step mom Gert(a wonderful partner for my dad who definitely assisted in getting him to that ripe old age)....what a great life!
