Today is the day, 67 years ago Far Guy was born. He was a “blue baby” now we know what that means. It was the first sign that he had Alpha One Antitrypsin Deficiency. Back then they didn’t know about such things and just called him a “blue baby.”
Far Guy and his sister in 1953
Don’t let the sweet smile fool you…he was a handful. Typical boy into everything and had to try everything at least once or twice. He often wishes that he had the Lionel train cars that were sacrificed for small explosions(Firecrackers) and those that were set on fire in the basement.
His Mom used to make him a birthday dinner, he always asked for shrimp, there was a french fryer in the basement especially for french fries or shrimp. She would make him some kind of orange sherbet dessert…it was spread in a pan and put in the freezer until it was served…brownies with hard (boiled chocolate) frosting was another of her birthday specialties.
I asked him to do a photo shoot with Chance.
Stop petting the dog!
All together say awwwww
Happy Birthday to our best friend!
