Happy Father's Day!!! (my daddy & grandpa & lolo)

My dad's first career was in the US Air Force. And after serving over 26 years in the military, he retired in Oct 1981 and my mom, brother, and I went to live in Wisconsin, where he is from. I got married in Feb 1982. My little sister was born in 1984. After retiring, my dad went to learn and acquired the skills of a clock master. It is simply amazing at the knowledge he has and still is in demand for repairing and restoring clocks of all makes and models.

My dad's dad (Grandpa Sambs) is one of 9 children! And my most vivid memories of him are that he would call me "chum", sit me on his knee and give me tootsie rolls, dentyne gum or rye crackers :o)

My mom's dad (Lolo-Philippino for Grandpa) was a very fit man. I remember him having lots of energy. I was told that he helped take care of me when I was a very little baby. We left the Philippines, when my dad got an assignment to Massachusetts - and I was 3yrs old. It wasnt until we got an assignment back to Clark AFB, Philippines when I was 14yrs old, that I got to see him again.

Hey lady-as soon as the $ is right, I'm still thinking about what pic I want you to do...I DID change my blog-after all, I AM the EVIL QUEEN (I've been known as that for years with my friends & family and actually collect Evil Queen from Snow White stuff)..I'll have to dig up the site I did the other pics at and email are getting the hang of this blogging thing really fast!!!!

KateB, Any time! I'd love to do a drawing for you. hmm what about a Disney queen? I cant imagine you being the Evil Queen!
So does that mean your site is still the same or did you start a totally new site?

Thanks for commenting! haha on that I am catching on fast! IT is an illusion!
If you could only see me in Mr.B's office, on this computer, wondering to myself what am I doing or what did I do??? haha

Trying to understand it all, before I start working in the big wide world of dental hygiene! (and I am excited about that too, just waiting for my license to be processed)
