Father's Day

My father was an original, but doesn't every little girl think that.  The above image was taken by Alfred Eisenstaedt for People Magazine.  When it was published, in the seventies, I was surprised.  Apparently, so was my father.  Eisenstaedt had followed him for a 'day in the life'. It was my father's habit to swim in the buff.  Something I did not know, but now all of America knew.
Looking at the image now, I'm left wishing I had inherited his calves.

This is a portrait of Dozer Packard, a dear dog who died unexpectedly last week.  No doubt, he is romping with all the good boys who go to doggie heaven.  Safe Home, Dozer....
