Fathers’ Day

My trip to HeroesCon with the Spawn last week was my primary celebration of Fathers’ Day, but today did not pass without observation. Mrs. M and the Spawn went through batches of old photos and scanned a number of pictures, from when Dad was a baby until just a few years back. Here’s a sample:

Clan Mondo, ca. 1973.

But the coolest bit was something I’m trying to figure out how to display on here. In 1958, my dad was a 15-year-old who liked to draw. He drew an odd cartoon-card for his father for Fathers’ Day. The Spawn used a scanner to create a replica, and then drew her own version of the cartoon on the reverse, with a signature and date that paralleled where my dad had put his 55 years before. I’m looking at it right now, and enjoying the ties between generations — which is really what I guess today is about.

Hope your day is going that nicely as well.
