The Long Letter
Today would have been my Dad's ninety seventh birthday.(1918-1986). I wanted to show you one of several letters that I received from him. I am the only daughter that ever moved away from this area. Therefore, I am the only daughter he ever wrote to.
This is the beginning of one of those letters that I received in 1982. Are you wondering why he wrote "top" at the beginning of the letter?
Well, for the same reason he wrote "bottom" at the other end. Apparently, the pages weren't numbered, because the letter was one long sheet of paper.
His explanation for this letter being nearly three feet long was that he didn't like to number pages, or write "over". You see, my Daddy had a great sense of humor, and I would like to think I inherited it.
How could one persons life be so different from winter to summer? Well stick around and see. I live in a cosmopolitan city half of the year and then head to a tiny town in the mountains the other half.....a place full of interesting people, beautiful scenery, wild animals......and great adventures!
