This is one cool thread! More dad and son photos needed. What a different world back then with the dangling cigarette!

I wish I had more pics of me and my dad.
The only real regret I have is not spending more time fishing with my dad.
And ofcourse I would rather be rich than so darn handsome. :coolup:

Since I don't know how to get it from my inbox to this forum, is there a volunteer poster that I could forward the link to? I will add comments if it ever shows up here (then delete this pathetic cry for help)


Thanks, Gary

Thank you very much David! My dad took that photo in late 1959 in Manzanillo on the mainland. I am the kid in the white T-shirt, a couple of months shy of my 13th birthday!

We caught those fish (I caught the sailfish) from the 14 foot aluminum runabout on the left side of the dock. I still have that boat in the yard here in Northern CA, and I think it deserves another trip SOB!

If you are not living on the edge, you are taking up too much space!

"Could do better if he tried!" Report card comments from most of my grade school teachers. Sadly, still true!
