This past Thursday Betsy and I went down to Tullahoma to see Dad. After helping him with some things around the house, we went out to lunch and then went for a ride. Dad is legally blind, but he enjoys drives out into the countryside, so we took him along to visit a couple of waterfalls in the area. He stayed in the car while Betsy and I were getting pictures of the waterfalls. But since he was with us, I convinced him that I needed to get his picture as well.
Dad was more feeble when we saw him this time than he has been at other times, but since he’s going to be 100 in August that is to be expected. He enjoyed being with us, just as we enjoyed being with him.
About the hat — one of Dad’s grandsons (my nephew) graduated from the Naval Academy in 2001 and gave Dad the hat, which he wears just about every time we go out.
