93

My Dad is 93 today.  I will see him for a short time today IF he is home and we will go to Bingo Thursday night.

Dad was to the Doctor on Monday, he is having a problem with his right knee, it is either a cartilage or arthritis problem.  He is supposed to wear his brace and put ice on it.  He recalls fighting on a hill in Korea and injuring his knee...he said the Medic pushed and pulled on his knee and said to go back to the line.

Dad keeps busy, he has one of those fancy walkers he calls it his Cadillac and he uses it when he is outside.  This is the first year he had not had a garden. 

My Dad was in Korea when I was born.

Happy Birthday Dad!

  9. Happy birthday to your dad and thank him for his service. He's only 2 years older than my dad would have been. Dad was in the Signal Corps but never saw active duty. I thank God that I have never has to live through a war in our country.

  10. Happy birthday to your dad. Those veterans are a tough bunch. Thank him for his service to our country. My dad served in WWII, but I think his injuries were all emotional.

  11. Happy Birthday to your Dad! I bet he missed his garden....getting older is about giving up things you love....well, except for Bingo! what a cute picture of you with your Dad in 1952....quite the dapper gentleman with the hat too. I hope he has a wonderful birthday and that the knee doesn't bother him.

  24. What a great Picture this is of you both! Happy Birthday to your dad too! Arthritis is sure painful, as I have it all over just like Grandpa on my dad's side and Mothers side too. It's an everyday thing that never goes away now. Sharon
