HAPPY BIRTHDAY DADDY

When I was a little girl I thought my dad was the most handsome man in the whole wide world.  Looking at his old pictures I still believe he was.  He was in the Navy and spent most of his time on submarines or sub tenders.  I loved when he wore his uniforms, especially his dress whites.  I still think of him every time I smell Old Spice aftershave.  I am privileged to have a wonderful ongoing relationship with my father.  In fact he is one of my loyal Dust Bunny readers.

Happy Birthday Dad.

Happy Veterans Day.

He is a handsome one... and you are lucky to have him in your life.  My father was a wonderful man, kind, loving, and gentle.  I have missed him for 27 years now.  He will always be " My Daddy" to me.  Enjoy this great thing you have.  Tinahttp://journals.aol.com/onemoretina/Ridealongwithme

Aw!  That sure is a handsome me isn't it.  That's a picture opf your Daddy, Dorn firing a torpedo using the Mk 101 Torpedo Firecontrol System on his submarine USS Bonita off the coast of Honolulu, Hawaii  probably in July 1956.  And yes I hit the bows eye.

Your father is so handsome. My dad wore Old Spice for a while.
When I was a teen & started a job, I bought him good stuff. I remember mom really liking that ;']. Happy Birthday to Dorn's Dad!~Mary

Man, sub life is tough. I was claustrophobic about 3 minutes after i was in one of those... and it was floating on the surface in Fall River.
