When Dad Was a Boy

"When I Grow Up" 
Jim Daly, Artist

I've been thinking about you today.   This picture has me wondering what your dreams were when you were a boy.   They probably didn't involved WW2, a wife, and a a cascade of kids.   You went with the flow and I'm thankful, especially since I'm number six!   Still,  I'm wishing I had asked you what you had wanted to be when you grew up, before responsibilities forced you into adulthood.  Maybe someday in Heaven we can talk about it, if things of the world still matter.   I'm just curious, as you know.  
Your ragamuffin children still miss you.
