Fashion Friday

The model this morning is my dad, Charlie, dressed for a cold, snowy day in Illinois back in the late 60's or early 70's. I remember Dad wearing sweatshirts and wool shirts in layers - the only coat I can remember his wearing was his hunting jacket. On this cold day he is in his hunting cap, green and black checked wool shirt and khaki pants. He also wears buckled boots. Not a fashion plate, Dad was a hardy, hardworking, good man. This is another picture that Bud sent me sometime ago that I had never seen. Such a good one! (Click to enlarge)

Wouldn't that make a great photo for the front of a christmas card. I just got back from Detroit, wind is drifting the high way, and am now off to Flint for a high school swim meet, Leif will do the driving on this one. Then we are off to the cabin for a few days. I heard that there is lots of snow in the north area.
