  1. What a fabulous post for Father's Day Lori. I just love the sensitive way you have treated these wonderful photos. Particularly love your Dad going trout fishing stylised and graduated. My Dad was a keen trout fisherman too!

  2. Family is wonderful! Love seeing the 3 generations. Those of you and your dad are so tender and loving. We have lots of fisherman in the family, including me, so the trout fisherman is grand. Beautiful post, Lori!

  3. Dear lovely friend, It has been long time since we talked and I do hope your weeks have been good and Life has treated you well.
