I have often stated that I am sure my Dad made my Mom swoon. Like for real, swoon. Here is why....
My Dad is a farm boy from western New York. He wanted to go to college but being a farm boy, his family did not have the money to send him. After graduation from high school, he worked to put himself through a 2-year community college. After graduating, he saw the Navy as a way to pay for the remainder of his education.
He was a pilot. No sissy landing a jet on dry ground for him. Give him an aircraft carrier with pitching deck! This photograph is my Grandma pinning on my Dad's wings.
A man in uniform. That is a jet pilot. So yeah, she swooned.
But I bet my Dad did a little swooning as well. My Mom wasn't too shabby either:)
They swooned. This is the family circa 1962 with Bubbles. Aren't they cute?!?
