At The Beach

Sunday Mornin' Coming Down - A post about my Dad each Sunday, named after a song that he loved.

This is one of my mom's favorite pictures of my dad. He is holding Mike. I believe he standing on the beach at Ipperwash. (Mike looks a little concerned.) I think this was probably the summer of 1988, meaning Mike is about 8 months old and my dad would have just turned 34. It is a great picture of Dad, and even perplexed little Mike looks good (though he was such a super cute baby and toddler that he is almost always adorable in photos.)

Mom liked this white shirt that dad is wearing. Memory is a strange thing because I swear I can remember this shirt. I was 4 when this picture was taken, so it is in the realm of remembrance. Also my Dad tended to keep, and wear, clothing for an exceedingly long time despite fashion or deterioration, so the shirt was probably around for much longer. However, part of me wonders if I only think that I remember it and in fact it is just from pictures and my mom mentioning it. (Her liking this photo and that shirt is not new information to me.)

Yep, he kept and wore that shirt long beyond its best before date, so not surprising you remember it.
