For most of my younger life, my dad owned his own business. He was a masonry contractor here in Arkansas - mostly commercial construction.

I got this photo yesterday in my email.

I had never seen it before.

Photo taken September 1958


I had no idea he had the same type of business when he and my mom lived in Florida, where I and my middle sister were born.

That's my 22 year old dad in the driver's seat. The photo was taken in 1958, the same year I was born.

Here's that street address today.

Dad will be 76 years old tomorrow.

Happy birthday, Dad.

I love you.



This is a Sepia Saturday post. Head over there for more interesting old photos and postcards.

Not sure if I'm doing this right, Karen S. here from twincitiesblather@blogspot.com
I enjoyed seeing your dad at 22 and his own company, very cool... and a big happy birthday to him as well!
