The Man of My Life... My Dad..Happy 83rd Dad

By Lynniesefforts  
Today is my Dad's 83rd birthday, and I am being a little self indulgent here, showing him off.. Grin... I am so proud of him, he is still my rock, even at my age !!..GrinGrin

PS He is very active, still plays 18 holes of golf 3 days a week, and senior comps whenever they are on... I eat his dust, I cant keep up with him... bless

I was just flicking through thinking how slightly irritating that some people are so self indulgent and then I saw yours - and I changed my mind. Fab image and how lucky you are. Happy birthday to your dad Smile

Warm, loving, humorous, full of life. And the picture captures that. Well done.

Well taken - such a lot of history, knowledge and warmth in that face.
You are so very lucky to still have your dad around! I still have my mum at 82 years young - she has just got an iPad mini bless her - but miss my dad a lot (we lost him some 27 years ago now at 56)
Please wish your dad a Very Happy Birthday and I hope he keeps on enjoying his golf for many years to come!
