1: Happy 90th Birthday Daddy! Wow, look at you! The changes that have taken place over your lifetime, in our family, in this country, in technology, and in the world in general...I can only imagine. You are so full of knowledge and stories about the things you have seen and done - a walking history book, I think. This scrapbook can only touch the surface , and most of the pictures you have already seen. Hopefully, we were able to include some you haven't seen as well. We all keep pictures, but they stay in boxes, out of the way, where we can't readily enjoy them. This book can stay on your coffee table, or close at hand, so you can look at it whenever you want. It was fun putting it together and picking your brain for the details. Thank you for all you have done for us through the years Papa!!! Love you!

54: Father Time is not always a hard parent, and, though he tarries for none of his children, often lays his hand lightly upon those who have used him well; making them old men and women inexorably enough, but leaving their hearts and spirits young and in full vigour. With such people the gray head is but the impression of the old fellow's hand in giving them his blessing, and every wrinkle but a notch in the quiet calendar of a well-spent life. Charles Dickens
