My dad is a cattle farmer in Gravel Switch, KY. At 81, he still raises beef cattle, grows hay and volunteers hours and hours to the Marion County Cattleman’s Association in Kentucky. When I visit, just keeping up with both of my parents wears me out. They are very active in their family, church and community activities. I’m proud of my dad for
putting up with having three wonderful (ahmm) daughters!
This photo was taken in 1960, I was 6 and my sister Terry was 3. We took a day trip to Cumberland Gap, Ky. That was a BIG adventure back then.
Fast forward about 11 years, my dad enjoyed participating and winning in local tractor pulls. That turned out very worthwhile for me. I won a $500.00 college scholarship in the Student Division Tractor Pull for Eastern Kentucky University in 1972.
Thanks, Dad, for everything!! Love ya lots!
Pat’s father, Bill, passed away in July, 2003. He was quite a character and always made me feel like part of their family. I like to think that he’s watching over us and would know we wish him a “Happy Father’s Day” in memory. Here they are when Pat was 12 years old.
Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there!
