Thoughtful Thursday

My Dad trying out the shoe shine stand at a local antique mall, a couple of weeks ago while visiting.

Missing my Dad on this Thoughtful Thursday!  


"It is only when you grow up, and step back from him, or leave him for your own career and home.  It is only then that you can measure his greatness and fully appreciate it.  Pride reinforces love."

  2. This makes me smile, and my dad wore sneakers almost exactly like that too ( red,white and blue ).
    I don't know if it is because I know we were both kids from military families at one time,
    but I get such a connection when you feature your dad.

  7. Great photo of your dad! The quote is so true too. My dad has been gone almost 20 years and I still miss him. I don't think we ever get over missing them.

  9. I remember a shoe shine bench that had room for 3 or 4 guys, it was a big deal at one time. Now you can't shine chinese shoes as they are mostly man made material.

  11. If your dad figures out how to get his sneakers shined, have him call me, OK?

  18. Your Dad is up for it ... that kind of thing rubs off on the rest of the family. My Dad's been gone for some time but he's left me with his creativity, thought explorations and a sense of fun.
    Looks like the shoe shiners are either up for a challenge or have gone a bit too far in their work !!
