The Bounties of the Internet

So do you know what happens when you Google your dad’s HAM radio call?  Assuming your dad, like mine, is a HAM radio operator?  This is what happens, you find an awesome photo of your parents from 1978 when they were on vacation in Montserrat (She’s in the sun dress, he’s the one with the grey beard and the dapper plaid Bermuda shorts sitting next to her).  And you find it just in time to wish them a happy 39th anniversary.  Even though they abandoned you when you were a year old to gallivant off to the Caribbean.

Happy Anniversary, Mom and Dad!

 

PS Thank goodness Dad isn’t the one in knee socks.

    Wow I had forgotten that picture existed.
    I don’t know who that guy in the knee socks is either.
    Thanks for the great anniversary surprise!
    Love you,
    Mom

  2. Wow, for a second I totally thought that was a picture of you being all retro. 🙂

    and your dad isn’t wearing socks with his sandals either– bonus!

    both my dad and grandfather were ham radio operators in upstate new york. i use to love going to the basement to talk to my pop using all that crazy equipment.

    a lovely picture.

      We used to talk to Santa Claus every winter. As I’ve grown older I’ve realised that Santa sounded suspiciously like a couple of my dad’s friends
