Happy Birthday Parker 8/8/69
Today is my son, Parker's birthday. He is 38 today! Where do the years go.?
We never did have a little baby, as he was over 10 pounds at birth. Here he is at a week old. The mole on the side of his head is like I put my brand on him as I have countless numbers of these spots.
He very gracefully came into this World when we lived in Boston. I remember the excitement of it all, although I don't show "excitement" very much . Luckily, our friend Johnny Frazier was beyond himself and excited enough for both of us.
Very conveniently he hold duel citizenship, an Ameradian, as a "Canadian Born Abroad".
It was not long before the little boy was out and about. I always like this picture of him when we lived on Long Island Sound in East Haven, Connecticut. He is not only such a cute little tow head but he is pictured with my second most cherished thing, my canoe.
When his mother decided, when he was two, that she wanted something else out of life than being a wife and mother, we were left as a small family, just Parker and I. I raised him until he went off to University to create a life of his own. They were good years, particularly the one's here on the farm.
Parker was easy to raise, as he was healthy, bright, responsible and independent. One has no right to ask for more blessings than these.
