A big day in family history

One year ago today, the truck came to live in our driveway. At the same time, directions to our house changed to "Just look for the old truck out front. You can't miss it."

And 9 years ago our first dogs, Ben and Bill were born. Our first foray into Great Pyrenees dogs. They were a blast together. But just like the truck rusting away in the driveway, the boys are now returning to dust, buried in the back yard.

Oh yeah, 60 some odd years ago, my Dad was born. Happy birthday old man. But I still assert that I am much too young to have parents this old.
