38 years ago today (August 12th), I gave birth to a bouncing baby boy. Secretly I wanted another girl. But it was love at first sight and I’ve never regretted the gift of a son.
I’ve always loved this picture of my dad feeding Jim. Notice how my folks tied him into a chair. They must have been babysitting him on this day.
He loved to do down the slide with his dog, Frisky. They were great pals.
He was never in trouble at school, well not serious trouble like getting expelled. Grade school was a little tough for him because he was so hyper. But by the time he reached high school, that hyper stuff had subsided.
Out of high school he went directly into the United States Air Force and made Airman of the month at least once.
Once he was discharged he was working for a printing company within 2 weeks….he still works there today. But he is taking college classes and hopes to transfer into the IT Tech world eventually.
He’s had his heart broken and broken hearts but as I write this he’s planning a Spring wedding with a lovely lady that I will be proud to call my daughter in law.
Happy Birthday Jim, your mama loves you!
PS: I also want to wish a Happy Birthday to my son in law and Bob’s Pasadena, CA daughter. Both are celebrating their birthday’s today~August 12th.
