A tribute to my Dad....

My dad passed away when I was 25, he was 71. He was a simple, kind man. My parents never learnt how to drive, so my Dad would take his bike everywhere ( or the plane  LOL he worked as a mecanic for Air Canada,  the biggest and best  Airline at the time); a trip to the store 15 minutes away would take him an hour because he would stop and chat with everyone. My dad was one of those guys who worked with his hands; he was always making and fixing things. And this is my all time favorite picture of us both, unknowingly taken by my brother....

Happy Father's Day to all the wonderful Dads out there....xoxooxox


PS Pipe smoking was very A la Mode in those days.....
